Nice kiting video. It's amazing how the camera angles make the bay slop at St Kilda look like half decent waves.

On a different topic I have to wonder about their thought processes when putting the additional footage in the video. What goes through your mind when you think it is a good idea to let your dog harass what looks like a sick seagull on the beach, then let the dog munch the bird, then put it into the video. What does that have to do with kiteboarding?

Allowing that dog to maul the seagull was cruel and unnecessary. It's typical of Slingshot's arrogance and carelessness.

This should be reported to the RSPCA. (Royal Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Animals). A copy has been made of the video and forwarded to the RSPCA. They can also be contacted at http://www.rspca.org.au/contact.asp

You've gone too far this time SS and you've had it coming... bring on the legal action.

Personally I think if all you can talk about is the seagull, you shouldn't be on a forum like this. Do yourself a favour and focus and enjoy the riding.

On top of that it has nothing to do with Slingshot in the first place and secondly the editing is brilliant since there's no harm to the seagull at all....but for that you'll have to know more about the rest of the footage. As said brilliant editing ...

As you can see in the video ruben looks very, very chocked about the death of the bird and it must have been an accident. Why not collect money to a funeral for the poor bird??

I think it’s almost the best kite video ever :bye: !

As others have said, WTF does SS have to do with this other than it's a vid of Ruben on their kites? Pretty sure they're not giving Dave @ Kitecinema.com any $$$ to put these vids together.

Why not just go after Dave for editing it, and Susi since she filmed some..? Fuckin' retard! :roll:

P.S. - I normally just ignore stupid posts like the one I quoted, but I couldn't pass this one up. :thumb:
