FOILING - WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?

It is an underwater wing that creates lift and allows you to fly along with your board completely out of the water!

WHY?

Foiling is a unique experience.  Fast, silent and super smooth!  Foiling adds many dimensions to your sport, wether that be Windsurfing, Kitesurfing or Wakeboarding.  Enjoy a larger range of conditions for all of these disciplines, creating more time on the water!

WINDSURFING & FOILING

Windsurf foiling now allows riders to use smaller sails in lighter conditions.  Less drag and a huge increase in apparent wind when foiling means you don't need as many sails in your sail loft.  Light wind riding is now fast and exciting, and when the wind gets up, so does the excitement!

HOW TO LEARN WINDSURF FOILING?

Slingshot have developed a foiling programme to assist riders from their first attempts, right up to consistent foiling for Windsurfing.

STAGE 1 - TAXI STAGE (15 Inch Mast)

Get a feel for how your foil behaves with a much easier and safer set-up.  A shorter foil mast allows for a very forgiving progression when learning to Windsurf foil.

STAGE 2 - TOUCH AND GO STAGE (24 Inch Mast)

The intermediate mast height helps with your first controlled rides, whilst still allowing an element of forgiveness. Rise and fall off the water and begin to foil for longer periods.

STAGE 3 - SOLO STAGE (30 Inch Mast)

Work your way up to 30' height mast and you've completed the foiling flight school programme. You'll experience the full pleasure of flight, and be dialing into your first tacks and jibes!

WINDSURF FOILING BOARDS

Slingshot have developed a range of board sizes across two models for Windsurf foiling.  The Dialer and the Wizard.  The Dialer is the go to learning progression board, while the more advanced Wizard opens up the possibilities for more dynamic and exciting foiling.

WHICH WINDSURF FOILS?

Slingshot have cleverly developed a modular system, allowing customers to interchange masts and foils, so as you develop your foiling skills, you can fine tune your equipment without a huge expense.  Start off with the flight school masts, then progress onto the full height foil and even swop between wings on the fuselage.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE IN THE FWIND1 & FWIND2?

The FWind1 foil is larger, Slingshot call it their H2 foil.  A larger platform for early and easier flight at a more comfortable speed.

The FWind2 foil is smaller, this is Slingshot's H5 foil.  The smaller foil is less forgiving and is capable for much higher speeds and dynamic riding.

The H2 and H5 foils can be bought separately and are interchangeable on the same fuselage.
