What Slingshot has to say about the 2017 Alien Air Foil
The Alien Air returns to Slingshots lineup as a proven board for all-around performance and user-friendly foiling progression. Featuring robust a concave deck, scooped nose, wide body and movable track mounting system, the Alien Air is a board that will get you up, foiling and having a blast. A wide body provides stability and a large surface area to move about as you please, while an aggressively scooped nose makes a dramatic difference in recovering rather than crashing when you nose-dive. As with all boards in our foil lineup, the Alien Air features bomber Slingshot construction and was designed by legendary shaper Tony Logosz.

The all-new Slingshot Hover Glide NF2 foil is low-cost, entry-level option in the 2016 Slingshot Foil lineup. The Hover Glide is designed for all-around performance freeriding, from beginner to intermediate. The aluminum and composite construction keep the price point low and durability high. This stable, user-friendly foil features a 35.5" mast (stock), with multiple other sizes available for progression and shallow-water foiling.
This foil is able to be mounted to any of Slingshot's foil-specific board options, and can be broken down completely for transport. If you're looking to get into the foiling scene without completely emptying the wallet, the Hover Glide NF2 from Slingshot is the foil for you.
The Rocket Foil shares the mast and fuselage dimensions of the Happy Foil. A longer cord length, thinner profile mast, and a 78cm fuselage with multiple wing position placement. The easy to ride low aspect wings set this foil apart from the progression pack. The durable glass construction of the wings allows for easy entry up onto a foil and lower glide speeds, making this set perfect for the first timer to the advanced foil trick master.
The Happy Foil offers next level performance in a free riding / free race design. A longer cord length, thinner profile mast, 78 cm fuselage with multiple wing position placement, and a fluid carbon lamination medium aspect wing set will have you running with the fastest hydro crew at the beach while keeping foiling fun. If you feel the need for a tuned ride, the Happy foil wings come with variable rear wing shims to adjust the angle of attack for the perfectly balanced feel.
The Ghost Whisper is the newest edition to Slingshot’s rapidly expanding foil lineup. This sleek carbon foil is fine-tuned for all-conditions riding and aggressive freeride performance. As a testament to the commitment Slingshot has to developing the most comprehensive foil lineup in kiteboarding, the Ghost Whisper features a modular design and sturdy aluminum fuselage that allows riders to change wingsets to achieve dramatically different performance characteristics. Buying into the Ghost Whisper foil is an investment in an evolving program, not just a single product.
