Product Description

Slingshot Build Your Own Foil

Build your own hover glide foil! Customize every piece and part of your foil to experience your own finely tuned ride.  

Wing Set

H1:  Foil wings are kind of like Ice cream. - Lot’s of flavors. Foiling will speak to everyone individually. Our current wing designs are optimized to enhance and improve performance based on the conditions and the sport you choose. Every wing is hand tuned with our speed finish. You will not experience buzzing, humming or vibration on any Slingshot foils or wings. (We guarantee it) Our modular system allows you to buy learn, and never outgrow.

H2:  The H2 wing has a large surface area and provides lots of lift at slower speeds and in lighter wind. This results in a stable, user-friendly foil and an approachable entry into wake, windsurf and SUP foiling.

H3:  The H3 wing is designed for high-speed, high-performance foiling. This is a great option for riders who progress beyond the limits of the stock H5 wing, or for riders who frequent high-wind locations and want a wing that’s a better match for the conditions. As part of Slingshot’s Modular System, the H3 wing is compatible with any Hover Glide foil setup and can be changed out in a couple minutes.

H4:  One look at the H4 wing and it’s easy to tell where it excels. With a low-aspect, high-surface area shape, it’s like a magic carpet that lets you glide across waves and swell you would have never thought possible until now.

H5:  The H5 wing is designed for all-around freeride performance. As part of Slingshot’s Modular System, it is compatible with any Hover Glide foil setup. This is the stock wing that comes with the Hover Glide kite and wake packages and has a proven reputation as one of the most user-friendly foils on the market.

Mast Set

15":  The 15" mast is the "Taxi" stage of Foiling Flight School and is an invaluable tool for entry-level and first-time foilers who need to develop basic skills and coordination before moving on to a longer mast. With the 15" mast, you'll learn all the initial steps of foiling significantly faster, easier and safer than with a full size mast.

24":  The 24" mast is the "Touch-and-Go" stage of Foiling Flight School. It is an invaluable tool in the learning process and will help you gain your first extended foil rides after learning the basics with the shorter 15" foil. The 24" foil is also a good option for kiters who frequent shallow water and need a shorter foil for long-term use.

30":  The 30" mast is the "Solo" phase of Foiling Flight School and is the final step of becoming a proficient foiler. After progressing from the 15 and 24 inch masts, you'll have the skills needed to make longer and longer rides fully out of the water and will be working on up and down wind angles, speed and kite control and your first touchdown transitions. The 30 inch mast is also a good option for kiters who frequent shallow water and need a shorter foil for long-term use.

35.4":  Full size 35.4-inch aluminum mast for Hover Glide foil.

Fuselage Set

Short Switch Fuse: Find your personal comfort zone.  The ability to adjust your wing position fore or aft in relationship to your stance is critical in balancing your rig, stance and overall sailing position.  Slingshot's patent pending Switch Fuse is an ingenious design that allows the foil to be configured in two different positions to accommodate varying board set ups, rider preferences and skill levels.  

Long Switch Fuse:  Find your personal comfort zone.  The ability to adjust your wing position fore or aft in relationship to your stance is critical in balancing your rig, stance and overall sailing position.  Slingshot's patent pending Switch Fuse is an ingenious design that allows the foil to be configured in two different positions to accommodate varying board set ups, rider preferences and skill levels.
