  • Slingshot's New Alien Air FX Board

    Slingshot has just released the 2015 Alien Air FX Board - with all the performance of any slingshot board and the alluring qualities of foilboarding.  This is an all-around amazing board. Whether you're just learning to ride a hydrofoil, or you're looking to freeride, ride waves, or race, this board is it.

    2015 Slingshot Alien Air FX Foil Kiteboard

    Why Foilboarding?

    Foiling is a unique experience - everything is silent and smooth. It's like gliding, with no sensation of contact with the water. It's fast, quiet, and very addicting. The reduced drag of a foil board makes it a supreme choice for light winds, while the floating feel of the board makes riding chop an otherworldly experience. Add to all this the Alien Air FX's quick maneuverability, and you've got a board that will undoubtedly surprise and delight you.

    What's so Special About Slingshot's Alien Air FX Board?

    While most foils generally look the same, the reality is that subtle details make all the difference.  Slingshot's partnership with Lift Foils has spared nothing in order to ensure that these foils have the proper strength, weight, and deflection characteristics. This video will give you some idea of what Slingshot is putting into the Alien Air Fx:

  • More Time Having More Fun: The 2014 Slingshot RPM is Here!

Life is for the living, Right? Even if it means you have to buy those giant bottles of pan reliever at Costco.

    Now, if you’re 20 and reading this, you probably don’t understand what I’m talking about. You can drink tequila all night. Sleep for 15 minutes. Kite all day. And Repeat. If you have an inkling of what I mean, you’re probably closer to 30. And hell, if you’re 40 or older, you routinely buy the giant bottles of pan reliever in 2-packs, and you know exactly what I’m talking about. But aside from the added expense for us older kids, we’re all still looking for the same thing:

The designers at Slingshot explain it best when they say this kite will help you “travel further. Land hotter.” And seriously, don’t you want “fast and solid landings” when you’re pulling aggressive moves?

    The RPM has been one of our most popular sellers since Slingshot launched the design, and each year’s update has benefited from Slingshot’s dedication to rider-tested functionality, their solid craftsmanship, and their drive to advance the sport of Kiteboarding.

They are durable, easy (and light) to carry, and easily stored in apartments, the overhead compartments of planes, or in the back of your car. Inflatable SUPs can also take a more beating than most solid SUPs can endure, so you can say good bye to that stomach-turning nausea that comes from dropping your board, or running into the dock.
