Re: The End is Nigh ... Slingshot gets into Windsurfing

You have a point, I'm focusing on the guys doing loops in the Horue and slingshot videos...but man that looks radical. Being able to launch and pull an inverted rotation off flat water with no kite pulling you skywards is just unbelievable. Alongside wave sailing and unstrapped freestyle on a surfbo...

Re: The End is Nigh ... Slingshot gets into Windsurfing

I don't know Starsky, kiting is one of the loves of my life, have been kiting for 15 years and foiling for 2 years and loving it, but I'm still pumped to try it on a windsurf board. It looks pure and beautiful and utterly non-dangly.

The End is Nigh ... Slingshot gets into Windsurfing

Almost shocking,and certainly kind of heart warming, to see windsurfing become cool again! I never expected a major kitesurf company to enthusiastically embrace windfoiling...at the risk of heresy, I will suggest that windfoiling looks way cooler than kitefoiling. Much more aggressive! https://vimeo...

Re: 2016 Zeeko: Hydrofoil dedicated Productscomoanies like Zeeko

Yep - I paid for a blue and white foil 2 weeks ago, after being told by Nicolas that it was in stock. He promised that I would receive a tracking number twice but no sign and he has not responded to my request for an update, 4 days ago.

Re: Strutless gems - BRM clouds compared to Storm Voyager?

I am confused by all the nonspecific hating. I was out on my 7m cloud c2 today, on a small tomo vanguard. No issues pointing upwind, in fact ended up as usual far upwind of everyone. I was on a 7, the other riders were on 11s and a few 9s. I was fully powered and weigh 85 kilos, not light. The littl...

Re: Strutless gems - BRM clouds compared to Storm Voyager?

Have been riding for 12 years, ridden maybe 10 different brands, from Cs to the latest bridled kites. This is my first season on clouds, bought a 7, 9 and 12 and am always the guy way upwind of everyone, ride a surfboard. Always deep upwind on the smallest kite. No affiliation with the brand, paid r...

Re: Hollow core surfboards anyone?

Any firewire in the FST (not kite) construction. I've used mine for half a season and landed jumps with no dings. Very light. Vanguard 5'1.

Re: Best way not to injure yourself : go strapless !

Well ... I severed my left ACL using straps after rotating the board with one foot in a strap after a bailed jibe ... incredibly painful. Never used straps again!

Re: Horue H13 is now available - Awesome price for a CF Foil

I also asked and was told to keep checking back every day. Cool looking board, but the lack of information or responsiveness makes me worry about customer service. What's holding up production?
