Ok to those that said they tried boots for 20min you have no idea what you are talking about! 20min is not enough time to dial in riding with boots let alone fully realize their advantages.

Not all conditions are for boots.
Not all spots are good for boots.
If waves are good hell I'll take ok, I'm strapless on my surfboard.
Board offs look gay. (my opinion) So why would I do them?

Too sum it all up boots are not for everyone.

Also pretty obvious that weaker swimmers aren't going to like not having their legs free when things go south.


All excellent points except the above. Even a strong swimmer could potentially get hit with an undertow in overhead waves after getting the wind knocked out of them. If you don't have the air to wait it out, you are a goner if you can't lose the board fast. The surface area of the board is oriented exactly opposite of the direction you want to swim, which is up. Your arms don't have the surface area or the strength to fight against the board, especially when it's being acted on by the hydraulic pressure of pounding surf.

But you definitely cleared up for me the reason some opt for boots.

Dude your talking about surf, which I already said your better off starpless ripping it. That stuff doesnt happen in boots, cause no one rides boots into pumping surf. We rock bump and jump chop and all the butter we can get ourselves into. Waves are for surfboards silly rabbit.

Hold unders in boots.. Please!

Hmm... Maybe if I ever wear off the novelty of the surface tricks and old school stuff, I'll give boots a serious try. But then, I think the only benefit it could offer me is holding a rock-hard edge through chop, as I rarely have experienced losing my board unintentionally.

Just a few words about Slingshot support — IT'S GREAT. We have found solution for my problem, so I'm more than happy.

Before I've talked to few other brands, and Slingshot support outperforms them with speed of reaction, attitude to you and ability to solve your problems. Even if gear sucks sometimes, support is not. This is the way to turn angry customers into loyal brand evangelists. :thumb:

i see it this way, if quality of the gear is in accordance with its high price, brand doesn't need spend lot of money on aftersales. and brand keeps happy and most importantly returning customer.

communicating with the support is usually related with negative emotions. if i have a problem with my gear i fix it myself and hardly ever again will buy from this brand again.
