2013 Slingshot RPM Up Close and Personal with OES

Throughout the evolution of the Slingshot RPM the kite has maintained it's reputation as a leader in 3-strut Open-C canopy design. The RPM is now in it's fifth generation and Slingshot has refined this kite to make it one of the most precise and intuitive handling kites of all time. As a crossover kite, there are few other kites that match what the RPM has to offer for a wide range of riding including progressive freestyle, free ride and even wave riding. The goal of the 2013 RPM was to retain all the good qualities the kite is known for and refine qualities that benefit the next generation.

2012 Airush Varial X 10m demo

It was a really fun weekend...I had the chance on Saturday to try the new 10m Varial X. Another awesome kite by Airush. It is best described as the perfect mix of a C kite and Delta kite...Really direct feel, power thru the turns, fast, forward flying, but still some depower when you need it.

2012 Airush Compact 5’4

I’ve spent a few hours now on my new 5’4 Airush Compact board. I’m really liking this board. I’ve had it out in some moderate to light winds, and then this past weekend in some really strong wings. It has the throw around factor of a 5’4 surfboard, but the low end of probably […]
