What Slingshot has to say about the 2018 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.

Alien Air board muy bueno!!!
I was hesitant to get into foiling but here I am now starting the process this spring with three sessions under my belt. The Alien Air is well built and tough. I have noticed when you learn to foil you flounder a bit in the water. The board will bang against your hook and control bar as you learn to get the foil into the starting position. This board can take that abuse and more. The padded deck is really nice and saves not only your feet but your elbows when getting the board on edge. The shape is what makes the board. I am learning on the flight school set of masts and with a shorter mast when you porpoise the board the swept up nose allows you to ride through then pearling the board. It has excellent float and rides nicely through chop and waves as you learn to get longer and longer rides on the foil. I am very happy with this purchase. No complaints.
Everithing ok !
