This online video series shows Youri traveling to Tarifa, Brazil and Africa finding the best kitesurfing destinations to train. In the action-packed episodes he shows why he is the current vice world champion and holds the title for 'best trick'.
The Scud is a skim board, and it rides like one. Even with the center fin, the Scud is loose. If you try to ride this board like you would ride a twin tip or surfboard, be prepared to slide around all over the place.
The Arcane differs due to its shape, volume, concave characteristics and fin configurations. The combination of features such as its single to double concave, concave deck, and down-rail with wing swallow make it very different than our other boards.
During our last trip Ian Alldredge and Ben Wilson took Danny Wills for his first kite lesson, he was up & going in 2hours. It was a fun time & he was frothing, it's pretty cool how quickly it is to pick up when you come from a surfing background.

Ben Wilson was in the shaping room when Slingshot made it and ended up liking it so much he took it home with him. He said it changed his life. He then convinced Slingshot to develop a full line of Celeritas boards.

We read the hype about the Octane on many of the forums before we tested, so our staff was excited when a 13m arrived in the mail. After spending hours riding this kite, we have to admit it lived up to its reputation and more.
