Its almost as bad as surfboard branding, with the above plus:
Jenna J
Kim K
Max Flo
Etc.

Never heard takoon “log” tho, that’s a classic.

Still, only surfing can lay claim to the wizard sleeve...
Happy times!
How could kite marketers ever catch up?

You should be ashamed of yourself..
Isn’t it cultural appropriation to call yourself Indian if you’re not?

Y’all apparently don’t know nothing about true South either. About good ‘ol boys. Not any of that racist people you brought up. God bless us all.

Hey now. I'm between 1/64th and 1/1024th full blooded Cherokee.

This is a list of questionable or in some cases: negative, pejorative, stereotypical or violent marketing names...
Wow...in best of millennial tunes isn’t your derogatory treating of “negative, pejorative, stereotypical or violent” an actual microaggression and offense to people who enjoy living by those values.

Check your privileges!

p.s. any donkey would take an offense knowing size of what we call donkey dick

p.p.s. shitty names are
KGB (as gear/trick name)
SS (as short for Slingshot)
BOSS (name of Hugo Boss, a passionate nаzi, designer of SS and hitler youth uniforms)
Suicide leash (more frequent referral of suicide increases number of those)
Best (doesn’t represent quality of gear)
Funny, I been using SS as short for Slingshot for ages and never made that connection ... till now :D

I’m guilty to be white, and I apologize for that, but 150 years ago my ancestors were owned by their feudal masters. That alone makes my opinion to be valuable, almost worth sparing me from PC cleansing (I might need to change sex to qualify for that fully though)
