Slingshot has been going nuts with their foil program and have the largest selection of wings, masts and accessories of any foil brand on the market. There foils are affordable, durable and ride really well. If your riding style changes, they make the accessories for every foil sport out there, so you are covered.
The FSurf is the only surf foil on the market that comes stock with two mast sizes. The 15” “Taxi” is perfect for learning and will keep you from flying too far out of the water and slamming. Once you have the 15” mast length dialed in, you can bump up to the 24” and glide and pump your way into foil euphoria.
How the Slingshot FSurf Foil surfs:
Having the ability to start on the super short 15” mast cuts the learning curve in half. The super short mast is the safest way to learn since you won’t get pogo sticked off of your foil. It will paddle faster and be more stable so your learning curve is much faster, especially if you are towing behind a boat.
The H2 from wing has a nice balance of lift to speed. You can get on foil early and as you progress, you can pump and carve smooth wide turns. This foil is more of a straight line foil that generates speed by
pumping up and down. If you want more of a side to side and faster turning wing, you can add on the H4 accessory wing once you get proficient enough to appreciate it.
How the Slingshot FSurf Foil kiteboards:
We have had a lot of success with the Slingshot foils for kiteboarding. The 15” mast allows you to push the board around and learn to ride the wing with out the beat downs you get on the longer masts. Even jumping up to the 24” is a big difference in the difficulty of your first time sessions.
The H2 wing is a really stable wing and it creates a lot of low speed lift. The higher speeds can get a little shaky on this foil but the low speed lift and light wind performance keep you coming back for more. Instead of pumping the kite for power, you pump the board. This foil is really easy to ride and really comfortable when you are gliding across the water.
We found that the H4 accessory wing is great for a light wind carving kiteboard sesh.
How the Slingshot FSurf Foil wakeboards:
The FSurf excels behind the boat. You can transition from your first sessions to foiling the wake with out a rope with ease. The straight line performance makes it really easy to ride. Also the ability to change the fuselage length will improve the turning on the boat wake. Make sure your driver starts slows, as this foil has a lot of lift and you don’t want to get bucked off.
Why you want the Slingshot FSurf Foil Foil:
The best thing about the Slingshot is that it is really easy to start learning on it and it has every wing style, box style, mast and fuselage style to customize to any craft or conditions you want to foil. This is a top quality product that you get at a price point that beats the rest of the market too.
