If you’re serious about foiling in the waves, a board designed specifically for the unique dynamics and forces of foiling will mean the difference between success and failure. Developed by Slingshot’s Hawaii Surf Division, the Skywalker offers a BLOCK TAIL design. The board paddles fast, and is specifically designed to enhance early take off. The wave literally can push you onto the foil. The concave deck provides stability and control when paddling. The Sky Walker has reinforced key locations to handle the unique forces foiling has on your board, which is important if you want to avoid donating your expensive foil to the bottom of the ocean. The Sky Walker balances the strength and durability needed to accommodate a foil, the volume and a block tail needed to paddle into marginal waves. Once you’re on foil, a concave deck provides control with subtle movement and a scooped nose helps you bounce off the water when touching down. The board is equipped with Slingshot’s signature track mounting system, which allows you to adjust the position of the foil for different rider preferences, conditions and performance needs.
Includes: 24" Mast, Pedestal, 610mm Shift Fuselage, Infinity 76cm (H11) Front Wing, 42cm Rear Wing, Hardware, Rear Wing Shim, and Custom Travel Bag
This setup has been long awaited by surfers and finally, the time has come. The Slingshot FSurf now has a larger and more efficient front wing with the Infinity 76cm. It has noticeably earlier lift than the previous Gamma 68cm (H2) wing with a similar top end speed. Heavier riders and tiny swell finally have an answer from Slingshot on the most durable and affordable system out there.
The magic of this setup seems to come from the fact that it has a great low-end lift but remains comfortable much higher into the speed range than you would expect. Also, it keeps its momentum with excellent glide characteristics, which means you can fly longer without pumping your legs into oblivion. The 24" mast is long enough for most riders and will give you a little more forgiveness with the bottom on those smaller swells.
