How to Assemble
Works great. I thought it would be a lot more difficult to pick up foiling. But with the flight school graduated masts , picked it up right away
I have a full size foil, but was not making any progress or had the time to put in like the rest of the crew at the beach. When I saw the Slingshot Hover, but mainly bought the Hover because of the flight school. The progression system of masts made sense to me and seemed to address most of the issues I was having getting started. Stoked to report that the progression was very fast, 2 sessions on the Taxi, 4 sessions on the Touch and Go, and had a great first day with the 30" Solo mast. So basically am foiling in 6 sessions. Well, ok, I'm not counting the sessions with my first foil, but like I said, I really wasn't getting anywhere and was about to give up.
