Hi Everybody
I`m a new member from germany and send greets to all. We ride a lot of slingshot-boards at the and i think they work great at cable also.
Are there any cable riders who had experience with slingshot boards at your local cabel?
In germany slingshot is a "underdog" brand but we trust in it!!!
I have seen Tom Fooshee and Earl Ball at our Riders Cup 2007...Tom is an amazing rider...some sequences of the Impact-Video are made here on my homespot with Tom, Nick Davis and other Top-Cabel-Riders.
Every year we had an competition called BEACHLUB RIDERS CUP with a lot of the best cabelriders in the world.
Is here a Slingshot cabelrider who wants to visit us next year in germany??? Talking about your costs for flight, hotel, drinks and food is not a problem, for sure...
I write here because of the best discussion board at all. Therefore i take my chance to hear more about slinghsot and maybe see someone of you here on my local cabel.
By the way, you can "tune" your Slingshot Board at different way. We changed the outline, size, tip and tail...smaller outline for more precision and stability especially for toeside tricks. Squaretails, swallowtails, wingtails for more movement, harder cuts an less buoyancy...and it works great!!!
Ok, thanks for your time...

You should have Josh Wright come out. He rides at the Texas Ski Ranch and he kills it on his Slingshot.

PM me and I'll see if I can get you his contact info

Ranier, Hey man, long time no talk. Josh Wright is most definitely your man. He rides for Slingshot and absolutly kills it! I think he would be a great rider to bring to your cable. Whats your email? I will email you more info about him.

hey Heinz

We are working on a Slingshot wake tour for Benelux (maybe even bigger).
So I let you know how that is going to work out.

How is it with Siggi? Was he able to work something out with slingshot in Germany?
And how is it with your board? Do you have the response know?
