  • Real Luggage for Your Kite and Surf Travels

    Crazyfly_Single_Board_BagYou’ve seen it before: the dude at the airport who is obviously too cheap to buy real luggage.  He’s got his mom’s old beach tote and a nylon gym bag with blown out zippers and a small hole where it got stuck in the door of his ‘87 Chevette.  This guy is a mess. His crap is barely staying in his bags: headphones dangling – almost ready to snag on the baby stroller next to him, one nasty old flipflop nestled disgustingly close to a partially opened, gas-station burrito.

    Did you shake your head as you watch this guy head to baggage claim to retrieve his kiteboard wrapped in cardboard? Did you cringe a little when you saw the crack in his board?  But before you get all high-n-mighty, look down at your own luggage. How’d your gear fair on your last vacation?

    Here’s the thing… God wouldn’t have made real luggage if he didn’t want you to use it. Don’t worry. We’ve can help you see the light. We’ve got the best prices on travel bags, kiteboard bags, surfboard bags, and golf bags, and even tackle bags that are non-denominational.  They’re durable and they’re built to protect your stuff.

  • 2014 Stand Up Paddle Boards

    Slingshot Space Pickle SUPDude…  I never say that. Really. I don’t ever talk like that. (It's sort of obvious when you see me in real life - pictured left.) I haven’t said “sick” or “like, totally” in the past 20 years.  But, Dude… SUP (Stand Up Paddling) is pretty freakin’ spectacular – and the 2014 Slingshot SUP boards available now are worth a closer look.  It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for epic surf sessions, an afternoon on the lake with your dog, or a full-body workout on the river after a stressful day at the office – you''ll find the perfect board for your SUPing dreams within the 2014 lineup from Slingshot.

    2014 Slingshot Nitro SUP Race Board

    2014 Slignshot Nitro SUP race boardAvailable sizes: 12’6 | 14’0”

    The Nitro is ideal for paddlers looking for stability, maximum speed, and glide.  Looking to go fast? This is the board for you.

    This board has a ‘hatchet nose‘ that slices through the water to minimize drag and maximize glide.  Slingshot’s also created an innovative, double concave, planning hull for amazing stability and control.

    2014 Slingshot Rant SUP Board

    2014 Slingshot Rant SUPAvailable sizes 8’4” | 8’8” | 9’0”

    Want a surf style board? The Rant is it. This board has the stability of a big board and the performance of a short board. It doesn’t matter if you’re an entry level rider or an advanced paddler, you'll love the Rant.

    This board is flat under foot for tracking, but the “v” spine also allows you to carve. You to ride everything from a point break to a blown out beach break. The wood veneer sandwich construction (wvs) controls the durability and flex of the board and the result is a proven lightweight, impact resistant board.

    2014 Slingshot Crossbreed SUP Board

    2014 Slingshot Crossbreed SUPAvailable size: 11’0”

    As you may have guessed from the name, the Crossbreed is cross between an all-around and performance touring board.  It’s the perfect SUP Board for paddlers who want to use one board in a variety of conditions.  This board gives you flatwater speed and medium sized surf carving.  33” wide, with a volume of 231 liters, the Crossbreed is as stable and forgiving as they come.

    2014 Slingshot Space Pickle SUP Board

    2014 Slingshot Space Pickle SUPAvailable Sizes: 8’6” | 9’4”

    The Space Pickle SUP board, no matter which size you choose, is ideal for catching waves early, shredding behind your boat, or cruising over flat-water. The board’s wide tail and kicked-up nose make the Space Pickle unique.  Built with wood veneer sandwich construction (wvs), the Space Pickle is lightweight and impact resistant.


    Will you indulge me just once more, because there is no better way to say it? Dude... Inflatable SUP boards are sick. They’re phat. Seriously, inflatables are rad.  That said, don’t be mistaken. We are not  talking about floaty-toys from Walmarket.  Modern inflatable SUP boards are very puncture resistant. They are durable, easy (and light) to carry, and easily stored in apartments, the overhead compartments of planes, or in the back of your car. Inflatable SUPs can also take a more beating than most solid SUPs can endure, so you can say good bye to that stomach-turning nausea that comes from dropping your board, or running into the dock.

    2014 Slingsot Crossbreed Inflatable SUP Board

    2014 Slignshot Crossbreed Inflatable SUPAvailable size: 11’0”

    The Inflatable Crossbreed is just as versatile as its rigid counterpart with the same name.  It’s perfect for paddlers looking for a single board to use in a variety of water conditions, plus it has the convenience of an inflatable.

    2014 Slingshot Space Cake Inflatable SUP Board

    2014 Slingshot Space Cake Inflatable SUPAvailable size: 7’10”

    The shape of the Space Cake makes the 7’10” feel more stable than most competing 10’ boards thanks to its width at the tip, midsection and the tail. This is the board for beginner to intermediate paddlers looking for an inflatable to have fun on the water.

  • Back from SurfExpo 2013

    2013 Surf Expo

    In the scheme of things, kiteboarding is a small part of last weekend’s Surf Expo in Orlando (only about 11% of the attendees are there for wind related stuff). But we go every year because we always walk away with something we didn’t have before – an actual visual on the newest gear, a sense of the vibe for the upcoming season. And of course it’s great to hang with the people we email and call on the phone for the other 51 weeks each year.

    A lot of this product isn’t available yet, but you can contact us before September 15 to place an early order and get’s the goods first.

    Lots of great stuff to look forward to but a few products stood out.

    We’ve already posted a few times about Cabrinha’s 2014 line. Seeing it all in person confirmed our enthusiasm.  It’s gonna be GOOD! The Flysurfer Cronix looks kickass. And F-One is ready to knock it outa the park with this year’s boards.

    You’re gonna want this stuff. Trust us.
