Lost Slingshot RPM 12m @ 3rd ave

Postby kenjidnb » Wed Apr 09, 2014 8:17 pm

My leash snapped today and the kite flew away, went under the san mateo bridge then god knows where it ended up.

This is a white slingshot RPM 12m with bar.

That sucks, I hope you get it back.

Did you let the coast guard know? Their number is (415) 399-3530.

Yeah, he parked next to me & knew the drill, called CG first thing.

Hope the RPM turns up. As I said earlier, it's probably gonna end up on the other side of the Bay by the Dumbarton.

I walked the entire dumbarton pier yesterday afternoon but didn't see it.
Coast guards didn't found anything either.

Now I have very little hope to get it back {}[]

Wow, I lost hope a while back but I guess I should believe in miracles from now on. Crazy that the kite spent almost a month out on the water...
Tony, you really are the man! I will stop by the shed this afternoon with a little appreciation gift.

i wanted to add.... i've seen oh so many of these slingshot safety leashes break it can't be a coincidence. ditch it. and replace the flag line too with someone else's.

and post pics of the kite that's awesome that it was found 0.o

Yeah the irony is, it was a $60 fancy shmancy mystic handlepass leash. Although it didn't break, it just "self released" after a crash unhooked...
