Re: 2019 Slingshot Turbine

Green, which do you prefer, the Flight or Turbine? - Flite- if they made a 21m Flite Id have bought that instead of the 19m Turbine. 2014 17m Turbine vs 2015 17m Flite: Turbine has more straight line power, Its bigger. For real heavy riders, smaller boards, or tandem use, its an obvious choice in m...

How much do you weight to even use 19m Turbine? This size must be for 300lbs rider or something...
Haha excellent question, I use it for tandem riding mostly :D

Re: 2019 Slingshot Turbine

After laying a 17m flite on top of my old 17m turbine and seeing the size difference (massive) I realized that the 15m turbine would be the same size (or still bigger) than the 17m flite. So, I compare the weight of 15m turbine 8.8lb (3.99kg) to 17m flite 8.65lb (3.92kg) and I end up realizing that ...

Re: Do i need a new surfboard??!

A few used surfboards in various shapes can easily be had for the price of one new kitesurfboard, they’re usually light, its always fun to hop on a different shape from time to time and it need not be expensive with the multitudes of used surfboards collecting dust, just waiting for someone like you...

Re: 2019 Slingshot Turbine

Surprised the Rally 14m would fly in less, that's a very heavy kite. Slingshots construction is actually very light. The kites are just sized bigger than most, and this gives them a bad rap when weights are compared without comparing the actual size. The 17m Turbine I had was hugely bigger than 17m...

Re: 2019 Slingshot Turbine

Only having one 'new' kite in my quiver, until recently. 2016 15m Turbine. It opened up kiting for me. Giving me success both in water and on snow. My recent purchase of a 2018 17m Contra was supposed to be a bigger improvement. :roll: Not so fast! Turns slower, ok to be expected I quess, less pull...

Re: 2019 Slingshot Turbine

Compared 2014 to 2017 - the leading edge diameter in wingtip area only, is thicker on the 2017, in order to (from my visual impression) support the whole kite being a bit more open / flat. Performance-wise though, pretty similar. Get whatever year has the best sale going. Save the money, any year wi...

Re: Printing on kites

Im not 100% positive but pretty sure REAL used to put their logo on with a big blunt tip sharpie marker and a stencil.
Others will know more but thats maybe the simplest option.

Ocean Rodeo Roam feedback wanted

Any feedback from those of you riding Roams would be appreciated. Im thinking about replacing my Solos (9 & 6.5) with Roams in order to gain some flutter free top end, keeping good drift.. I adore my 12m Flite and am leaning towards Ocean Rodeo for my surf oriented kites as well because of that, but...
