What We Like
The FKite is a great recreational foil. It has a larger front wing than a lot of kite foils on the market so you can cruise at low speeds and stay on foil. This set up is very easy to ride and does not buck you off like more performance oriented wings.The upwind performance and top speed were better than what we expected for a foil with this much wing surface area.
The turns on the FSurf are so buttery. Flowing through turns and pumping the foil makes you feel like you are ripping in deep powder on a snowboard.
The FSurf is a great crossover foil as you can surf foil or wake foil it too. The front wing has enough surface area to get you up on a wave or behind the boat.
Slingshot has done a great job of making accessories for their foils. We love their interchangeable mast system as you can adjust your ride based on where you are foiling and your ability level. We strongly recommend the new 46cm (18") mast for very first time beginners. The shorter the mast, the safer and easier learning to foil becomes. If you are foiling in deep water and want better upwind performance and to combat the chop, try out the 90cm (35.5") mast.
The new Warp Speed 65cm wing is a great addition if you want to go fast and rocket upwind. This wing is high aspect and super fast. It will feel like putting rocket boosters on the back of your foil.
There are two positions to mount the mast. We only use the A position where the mast mounts right into the front wing. On the B position, we found that it was really hard to find the sweet spot on the foil.
We have taken all the input we have gotten from our foil academy (thousands of users) to build the most dynamic and playful all-around kite foil package on the market, period. This is Slingshot innovation at its finest, and it’s years ahead of the competition. Do your research ... you’ll see what we mean. The 2019 Hover Glide FKite package is equipped with the Space Skate (H4) front wing instead of the H5 wing of the prior two years. The H5 was (and is) a great all-around wing, and the H4 is the obvious evolution for the FKite package. This is one of the most versatile foils in our line. Its size and surface area provide the lift and stability needed for learning, progression, tricks and transitions. Its unique dihedral shape provides a crazy level of dynamic carving control and self-centering flight that you have to feel to believe.
