Through hurricane Sandy's white haze a small group of adrenalin junkies decided to head to Playa Linda and ride her dark walls. Strong side-offshore winds provided epic conditions.

We changed everything with the introduction of the RPM five short years ago. It’s proven “Open-C” canopy design and Slingshot’s patented Split Strut technology continue to push kite design to a new level even today. The RPM created (and still dominates) the 3 Strut “Open-C” category.
Through years of testing and rider feedback, we have made steady improvements and subtle refinements until reaching the pinnacle it is at today. The 2013 RPM Crossover kite is a powerful combination of aggressive freestyle characteristics and progressive crossover performance. It’s low profile wingtips increase turning
speed and reduce drag, while the custom attachment points optimize kite performance and deliver complete tuning from freestyle to wakestyle in seconds. Inspired by our world class team, the RPM delivers unmatched out of the box performance with many options for personal customization.
Over the years, we have built a full range of sizes to help you create your perfect quiver. From dominating freestyle to hard core crossover, the 2013 RPM retains it’s standards of durability and stability along with it’s aggressive look and feel on the water.
The North shore of Hawaii is the birthplace of surfing. Where heroes gather and legends are made. Home to Cabrinha kites. Infamous for massive winter swells. In the first act of this kitesurfing short feature we see how easy a love affair with the ocean or with a pretty girl begins. II, Fade from black and white to full color. And III, has the goods wrapped in barrels of fun. Its intoxicating lure calling us out to ride.
