Slingshot at 3rd Ave Today

Postby troybo13 » Fri May 10, 2013 8:42 pm

It was good to see Brave Dave and the SS crew doing an impromptu demo today at 3rd. Ave.

Gracias for the demo of the 2013 RPM and Rally. I saw boards and kites being demo'ed and even a few tshirts and hats disappearing.

On another note, I was in the golf parking lot when the guy who damn near lost his index finger in a kite string incident came looking for first aid. That was around 5. I hope he is okay.

I just spoke with him this morning. He is ok, got a bunch of stitches and is still trying to figure out what and how it happened. He says the "grenade" was accidentally released and he was pulling himself on the fifth line up towards the kite when it powered up again.

Brave Dave and the SS crew? What SS crew? There's a local SS crew here?

"We're having a demo, and will drive down from Oregon, won't promote it in any way and will randomly show up somewhere with no notice."

Same thing last year and seems to be their style now since Shy's departure. Brave Dave, or anyone else from SS, has never announced anything here about, well, anything, including demo's, new product info, current SS threads (like the current RPM or Rally one), support, etc.

If you call SS with an issue, I think you will get good support, but as far as a local rep, local support and local crew, or getting product info and support? Who would one go to?

Instead of Shy being laid off, he should have gotten a promotion. His energy and stoke for the brand was infectious.

That is odd because I didn't see hardly any Slingshot kites at 3rd yesterday.
