Took me 3 times to notice the nose ride at 1:05 of the T-Rex video. Can't wait to try this board. All my demo 2014 Slingshot gear is coming next week except the T-Rex is running a little late.

Nice....

I'll be honest...the T-Rex has me intrigued to say the least. I'm bummed they are the only new 2014 products that haven't shipped yet, but hopefully when it does there's good winds to try.

I seem to be on the quest to find the best surf boards out there and have found a few that I love and a bunch I like. Harder than twinnies in my opinion to get impressed.

How have the winds been at the bottom?

It seems, kiters rarely match the kite with the ideal board size, especially in surf. Even when i watch the pros, many times i see a board that just does not fully make use of the wave because it is too big or maybe too powered by the kite. This is why the t-rex category will eventually work itself in. If a pro surfer were going twice as fast (especially with a kite in hand) he would need a perfectly paired board size to then maintain turns at that speed but kiters just try to use the surfer size board regardless?

As far as the jumps on surfboards, it is impressive to see but nothing like a shaun richman dropping his bag o tricks so i want something that has more of an ability to do both. the t-rex direction is one that closes that gap to allow more of both disciplines to shine and one i love exploring. windsurfing never chose to separate this out and it was sick when the right conditions came thru.

bottom is cool.. very little north wind kicks the waves up and at best my little one surfs most every day. maybe cross paths this fall
