    Default Mystic and Slingshot

    "I'm just hanging out, drinking some beers and promoting my gear like I’ve got some new stuff out with Mystic and Slingshot"

    That was said by a surfer who had just quitted the race.

    Why "
    Mystic" and "Slingshot" are capitalised? Can they simply be names?

    Thanks a lot.

    They must be brand names or names of magazines or something to do with surfing. It makes more sense for that to be the case than to imagine the sentence with them uncapitalised and try to work out what on earth "mystic" and "slingshot" might have to do with it.

    You kindly mean that he promoted his stuff with "with the help" of those 2 magazines?

    Also if they are magazines, they are supposed to be famous, I guess. But no clear Google results.

    Slingshot Kite Surfboards
    Mystic Surfboards

    I assume that the surfer designed something for these companies.

    or he promoted his stuff by buying new acessories for example from those companies' products?! Can that go?

    It's unlikely. He said, ""I'm [...] and promoting my gear like Iíve got some new stuff out with Mystic and Slingshot"
