Pansh Aeolus?

Who's going to be first to try this? High AR, plenty of cells. The pix look a bit weird with its shape.

Re: Slingshot Bar trim

Slingshot bars do not have adjustment knots under the floats. I asked Slingshot about it and they recommended added extra pigtails to even out the lines if you have stretch.

Re: The Truth behind Naish Warranties

:thumb: to the shop for posting pix! There's obvious damage that could not have been caused by a defect from the factory; the small cut/hole ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE where the bladder didn't come out during the explosion. How did that happen? I'm personally not a fan of Naish because of my windsurfing g...

Re: Dyneema Carbon - new exciting material for kiteboarding!

Aren't all carbon structures like bicycle frames, foils, kiteboards, whatever done in multiple layers? Maybe making the whole structure with dyneema carbon wouldn't be the best idea because it wouldn't be as stiff but making just the top layer could be beneficial. I wouldn't mind having my carbon mo...

Re: What don't you like about foiling.

Besides screwing everything together, the actual foiling part. When I lift up above the water and go. I feel too disconnected from the water. I love the efficiency and upwind performance but that's about it.

Re: Slingshot Hoverglide Top Plate Spacing

Why not add the holes to the LF plate? If the HG can survive with 4 extra holes, why not? The aluminum fuse is easy to find, its just something like 31mm across face hex rod. IIRC it was like $30 a meter. Mill the top flatter, drill and sink some holes, flattem the tips and you're good to go. My fi...
