No, this is not a Kite or a futuristic Windsurfing sail. It's a Slingwing invented some years ago by Slingshot. But since foiling wasn't what it is today there was no market for such a thing as the Slingwing. Kiteboards simply have to much drag to get the Slingwing working for you in winds below 25knots.
But now we have foils, this might be the perfect solution to fly & foil on places where kite-foiling isn't possible or allowed. Also, when you are a beginner to wind-water-sports this is a safe and easy way to get flying over the water!
The Slingwing V1 can be used on an SUP board in combination with a foil or just on a big SUP for slow cruising. It's also very nice to use on your snowboard!
The Slingwing V1 features:
-Rigid and stiff inflatable frame for optimal stability.
- Bombproof Slingshot construction.
- See trough panelsto make you more aware about the people around you
- Power grip Y-handle layout, this makes it possible to hold the Slingwing anywhere needed.
The Slingwing comes with a Backpack and a Leash.
