Are you a smaller rider, more experienced, looking for easy travel? If you answered yes to one or all of these questions, then the 4'5 Happy foil board could be for you. The 4’5 inch Happy hydrofoil board has the same great design, construction, and benefits of the 4'10, only in a smaller package. In addition to having less swing weight and a better view of the water underneath you, the Happy 4'5" board will fit into most golf bags for travel, making it the ultimate companion to your next trip. Included multiple strap options allow for strapless, single, double, and triple strap placement to suit any style. While the 4'5" Happy is a bit smaller than the 4'10, it’s still a great board to learn on given its flipped nose and buoyant design. Larger riders and light wind specialists will appreciate the 4'10" for its additional plane-ability.

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.

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.

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.

Discover quiet flying on your windsurfer. Tony Logosz designed this wing with emphasis on control, stability and early take-off.

The H2 wing is built for all around foiling, killer turns and will be a long-term staple in your quiver.
