This will rock and be a good warmup for the BIG event coming up a bit afterwards.

Looks like Ruben and a "special guest" will be in town and the plan is to have it happen on the weekend of June 12-14th. Think SLINGSHOT/MYSTIC DEMO/PARTY. So this will be the BIG event! Look for further info and press release soon.

Let the Hype begin! :banana-linedance:

At my age and occupation, last thing I need is a Fue! But if you're up there this weekend, or for for the Mega-Demo in June, go for a spin on the RPM. Be careful on the loops though, it's a meaty kite! As for Fuels, there may be some, not sure. But in June for sure...

A little word of thanks to the riders who came out and tried the new gear from SlingShot, the Demo was Awesome!! You guys and gals made it happen for me, I was SUPER STOKED to set up so many riders for a session- the front line (my demo area) RULED!! Thanks for the Props- My Brothers and Sisters!!

Bounceback quote- "Hi Greg - Thank you for letting me and Dan demo RPM (6m & 10m)! What a fun little kite. Responsive, effortless with plenty of floats and soft on the landing. Dan MADE ME gave it back! Would've liked to say thank in person but we needed to be on our way back up the hill. It was very nice seeing you. Have a great demo weekend. - Jenny"



Anyway- I'm looking forward to a few more demo's in the next month. The next demo will probably be at 3ed ave. We'll bring a few quivers of kites a verity of the new boards in the line up including several WAVE Boards. I hope you get a chance to check them out .

Also the next Demo at Sherman will be OFF Da HOOK!! With riders like Len-10 and Slaker busting moves as well as many of the other riders pushing there skills and learning from each other we are sure to have a Rock'n good time on the island. I'm planning on setting up a few new platforms for the photogs to shoot from and we'll see if we can set up a little sound system and some refreshments for the riders on second island. After dark Ollie-G will be spinning some tunes and getting all his bling-bling (light show) going and we're working on putting together enough grinds to feed a small army... So ENJOY!!
