What Slingshot has to say about the 2018 Converter Foil Board
Built around our popular Angry Swallow surfboard, the Converter is a one-board-for-all platform that features an inlaid track mount for foiling and a click-in three-fin FCSII setup for surfing. This allows riders to choose or switch easily between foiling and surfing with the same board. For surfing, the Converter is a proven shape that riders love for its all-around versatility. For foiling, riders appreciate the familiar feel they get from a surfboard shape instead of a dedicated foil board. Whether you’re a traveler who doesn’t have room for two boards or you want to save a little money by buying one board instead of two, the Converter strikes the perfect balance between convenience and versatility, without compromising performance.
