Re: 2-way waterproof radio /headsets?

Until I find smaller radios... I'm still using my bagged FRS radios. Would also be nice if they were any RFS radio options which were truly rated IPX7 or 8. Think I'm going to modify a helmet(s) [aka carve away some of the plastic] in order to make a better niche for the radio to be strapped into. R...

Re: slingshot H2 or H4 for learning jibing and tacking

@macgruber Why the 1st sesh on the H5, the fastest of the three foils? I'm guessing it's easier to go slow without foiling, since it probably has the highest take-off speed of the 3 wings? -B ...snip... Session 1: 2 hrs on h5 and 24” mast. Session 2: 2 hrs on h2 and h4, 24” mast Session 3: 2 hrs on ...

Re: Nitro 7 Proto Photos

Re: One big ad If you think it all one big ad, then that's even more reason to read it all. There's a lot being said in that article and perhaps even more not being said! It does illustrate a completely different way to get the word out when a company changes direction. Or a company can opt to take ...

Re: Nitro 7 Proto Photos

Too bad a new thread wasn't started. Didn't this start out as a thread on the Nitro7 that Switch isn't going to make? The new thread could have a catchy Subject title like: Switch Pimps Shed The Light! :respect1: :lame1: :protest2: For some classier reading on what's going on in the industry, you mi...

Re: Nitro 7 Proto Photos

Side topic - to the Krypto thread I had deleted @Everyone - Hard to post to a thread that's deleted. BTW, I love hot kitchens and smoke. Put some more wood on the fire. Crank it up! I love exposing the truth and righting wrongs. However, my good intention was potentially going to cause collateral da...

Re: slingshot H2 or H4 for learning jibing and tacking

At the recent KB4C in Hood River, I took a photo of the new [black graphics] SS foils laid out on a table, but somehow deleted it. However, here's some of what SS had for demo...

Re: slingshot H2 or H4 for learning jibing and tacking

I was hoping for an optional composite version to save some weight. That fuse is a deadly weapon! Especially the longer Switch wind/SUP/surf-foil version. I might taper down my kite fuse. The cross-section thickness is way overkill, at least in the rear half. ...snip... Go Slingshot, go! (and please...

Re: slingshot H2 or H4 for learning jibing and tacking

Good to know, because right after I bought a H2 three weeks ago, as a more stable wing option to go along with my H5, I found out about the Space Skate/H4. I had buyer's remorse and thought I had screwed-up. I'll just keep blinders on, to keep gear lust under control, and ride the H2 a while. I need...

Re: my learning progession on a hydrofoil

I posted this on another SS H2 vs. H4 thread... FYI: The old Slingshot H4 is now called the new Space Skate 65, which is the new stock wing for the 2019 Hoverglide kitefoil kit. The new HG kit also comes stock with a shorter ~28" mast. There must be something good about that H4 for SS to use it as t...
