OUR TAKE ON THE HOPE CRAFT V1:
All of us at the shop are familiar with the Slingshot Dwarfcraft since it's been a staple in the kite foil and wake foil communities for years. New for this year is the Hopecraft - a similar board designed to meet the performance demands of world champion foiler Fred Hope. If you know who Fred Hope is and are familiar with his level of riding, that alone should have your interest piqued if you are looking to take your foiling to the highest level. If you are unfamiliar, I would suggest searching YouTube for some solid entertainment and mind-blowing skills. In the meantime, we'll chat about the differences from the Dwarfcraft.
The Hopecraft features a max-volume nose to help aid in recoveries on touchdowns after boosting to the moon and coming in a little too hot. The pro stiffness core implements both wood and PVC stringers with a new beefed-up glass layup. That's right, I said wood and PVC stringers. Stringers are an integral part of board stiffness and durability from impact as well as performance. The rest of the board is very similar to the Dwarfcraft that we have all come to know and love. The Hopecraft comes in just one performance-dialed size at 103cm.
WHAT SLINGSHOT HAS TO SAY ABOUT THE HOPE CRAFT V1:
Fred Hope has been foiling for a long time. The world champion knows what works and what doesn't. We decided to give him free-reign to design exactly what he wants. The result is the all-new Hope Craft V1. Fred is always trying new tricks and maneuvers on his foil and he was really adamant about having slightly more volume than the smaller boards we make. He wanted that volume in the nose so that he could recover from touchdowns after radical maneuvers. He also needed stiffness. When you are moving at speed and heading into turns with serious pressure, you need that hero-level stiffness. The Hope Craft takes true performance to the next level. If you are looking for a board that can keep up with your progression the Hope Craft is yours!
