With several innovations in windsurfing, wakeboarding and other major sports, both Jeff and Tony Logosz founded the forward thinking Slingshot. With four patents developed over the past ten years and licensing patents from other great innovators, Slingshot has dedicated themselves to making kiteboarding more safe and user friendly to ensure the success and evolution of their sport.
The Slingshot Fuel Kite stands with twelve years of design dedication, blood and sweat with its proven and timeless high performance platform. For surf and free ride performance, the Slingshot Rally has been completely reengineered for improved rigidity and efficiency. The open-C canopy of the Slingshot RPM pushes kite design in the three strut category with the aid of strenuous testing and years of rider feedback. The spherical-C design of the Z kite offers consistent pull with stable power and uncanny versatility. Slingshot's Key HD is a five strut kite that gives free riders unmatched range and unbelievable in flight stability. Slingshot also offers the B2 and B3 Series trainer kites for those wanting an introduction to kiting sports.
The 2015 Slingshot Alien Air FX Hydro Foil Board is designed to perform well in all aspects of freeriding and appeal to anyone looking to get into foiling. It’s user-friendly yet extremely efficient and high performance. This makes it the perfect crossover for flat water, ocean, and river sessions. Co-Founder and Head Slingshot Product Designer Tony Logosz has quietly been working with Nick Leason of Lift Foils for more than two years. According to Logosz, “The technology and knowledge that goes into building a quality hydrofoil does not come over night.
Working with the best in the industry was a critical part of our long-term approach to developing foils. Nick could focus on design criteria while I could focus on general wide- market appeal, composites and the overall final fit and finish. Our shared R&D effort has lead us to set the standard for quality and performance for those looking to get into foil boarding. Think of it like this: Slingshot builds the computer and Lift builds the technology inside. The combination, simply put, is incomparable.”
2015 Slingshot Alien Air FX Hydro Foil Board Highlights
Slingshot is proud to introduce our first complete Hydro Foil package. Co-Founder and Head Slingshot Product Designer Tony Logosz has quietly been working with Nick Leason of Lift Foils for more than two years. According to Logosz, “The technology and knowledge that goes into building a quality hydrofoil does not come over night. Working with the best in the industry was a critical part of our long-term approach to developing foils. Nick could focus on design criteria while I could focus on general wide market appeal, composites and the overall final fit and finish. Our shared R&D effort has lead us to set the standard for quality and performance for those looking to get into foil boarding.” Think of it like this: Slingshot builds the computer and Lift builds the technology inside. The combination, simply put, is incomparable. The NF² is designed to perform well in all aspects of freeriding and appeal to anyone looking to get into foiling. It's user-friendly yet extremely efficient and high performance. This makes it the perfect crossover for flat water, ocean, and river sessions.
The NF² hydrofoil is entirely designed for accuracy using the latest in CAD and CNC capabilities. Every detail is tested and optimized for maximum control and stability while increasing the potential for speed. We believe Carbon Fiber construction is critical in building quality foils. While most foils generally look the same, the reality is that subtle details make all the difference.
These details are not always discernible with the human eye but the differences can sure be felt on the water. The saying you get what you pay for has never been more relevant than when buying your first foil. Our process and construction uses the latest manufacturing technologies and carbon materials available. We have spared nothing in order to ensure that our foils have the proper strength, weight and deflection characteristics. The advantage of carbon combining the latest applied material sciences into the Slingshot foil are:
1. It offers neutral buoyancy which is key to making a true freeriding foil - it improves handling and makes water starting much easier when learning. More important is it allows you to progress to wakeskates and skateboard decks that do not have the volume to support a heavy foil.
2. The foil is manufactured using precise mechanics resulting in increased control, speed and upwind ability.
3. It's highly responsive which enhances the overall rider experience in all conditions.

The 2015 Slingshot Turbine creates a new definition for what is ride able by getting you up and going in wind speeds as low as 5-6 knots. We attribute the range and versatility of the 2015 Turbine to our proven Open Delta C platform and our 5-point cascading bridle attachment system. This critical combination creates a consistent smooth feel throughout the power stroke along with direct bar input. Proven improvements include an aspect ratio and reduced LE diameter that work together to create more grunt and power without sacrificing turning speed, efficiency or upwind performance.
At Slingshot our philosophy has always been based on fun. Our goal is to design gear that will get you on the water in any riding condition. The Turbine has our proven mini strut technology that makes it a full structured five-strut kite. It achieves the same benefits in the air with no hassles on the beach. Customer satisfaction and feedback from our larger Turbine riders has been so positive we added a new 15 meter! The smaller Turbine is designed for light to medium weight riders or riders that are very efficient. The Turbine 15 combined with our new foil board is a deadly combination in the lightest of wind.

The fresh, versatile “Spherical-C” design of the Slingshot Z kite gives consistent pull with controlled power and unmatched versatility. Stable and predictable in virtually all conditions. The Slingshot Z kite is loaded with the latest innovative features. However, its most important feature is the “plug and play” usability you will experience everyday. This includes features like our industry first pulley-less bridle that delivers a direct feel, enhanced responsiveness, and unmatched upwind performance. Additional unique features like our Spherical-C Profile and Axis Wing Tip allow the kite to easily roll up off the water into relaunch. Like our other kites, the Z has been optimized for maximum range to suit all kinds of riding conditions. Originally designed for new kiters, The Slingshot Z has quickly gained a reputation for huge boosts with good control and effortless relaunch.
In 2016 we’ve continued with the well-received detachable four-point Nitrous bridal system introduced last year. This new addition, along three customization settings - Mega Loop, Freestyle and Freeride - gives riders increased flexibility and freedom in how the kite performs. When installed (the bridal comes factory installed but can be easily removed), the Nitrous system delivers explosive pop, massive hangtime and, most notably, increased range and depower.
All of Slingshot’s 2016 kites come with our new One Pump Speed System, which increases inflation efficiency to get you out on the water faster and with less energy than before.
2016 Slingshot Fuel Technology

Couple that with an innovative double concave planning hull that optimizes stability and control, the result is pure speed.
2014 Slingshot Nitro SUP Race Board Features
DOUBLE CONCAVE PLANNING HULL
Breakthrough hull design that allows for independent foot stability and increased speed, control and stroke efficiency.
Cuts and moves water clean to the sides for minimal drag and increased speed.
The deck literally sheds water that may come over the nose, providing dry, open and efficient area that holds feet for buoy turns and drop backs.
‘V’ TUNNEL BOTTOM SHAPE
Minimizes friction by reducing contact with the water to essential hull surfaces producing less resistance and more speed. Releases the tail increasing the rocker at the rail line allowing for easier turns.
Provides surface and planing area to maintain speed and lift. Allows for more pivotal turns.
FULL COCKPIT LENGTH EVA PAD
Comfortable, high density traction material with uniform support.
Manually open and close vent plug to allow your board to ‘breath’, equalizing internal and external pressure from heat and atmospheric pressure changes.
4 TIE-DOWN PLUGS
Allows for securing person items on the board. Bungee system sold separately.
ERGONOMIC CARRY HANDLE
Designed with plenty of room to naturally fit the curve of your fingers, the flush mount carry handle makes it easy and comfortable to carry the board.
Although built specifically for surf, the 2016 Slingshot Wave SST is also an outstanding kite for easy-going strapless riders and the rapidly-growing faction of foil boarders due to its incredible depower, feather-light feel and unrivaled turning characteristics. For customized performance, the kite features three trailing edge attachment points which result in more or less bar pressure and sensitivity depending on which point is chosen. All of Slingshot’s 2016 kites come with our new One Pump Speed System, which increases inflation efficiency to get you out on the water faster and with less energy than before. Slingshot coined the term “Surf Tough” nearly 15 years ago with its unique seam technology, and its designers have taken that concept to another level with the Wave SST.
The kite is constructed with an extra heavy duty Rip Stop Surf Grid canopy material and has extra panels reinforced in a gridded quilt pattern to provide increased strength in the event of a water landing. These upgrades compliment Slingshot’s already rock-solid construction that makes our kites the most resilient on the market. Built with significant and unrivaled upgrades to Slingshot’s already bombproof construction, the Wave SST (offered in 6, 8, 10 and 12 meter sizes) is sturdy enough to take a pounding in the surf, but light enough to track magically downwind, downloop on a dime and whip across the window at the flick of a wrist. For kiters serious about taking their wave skills to the next level, the Wave SST is the kite to take them there. The Wave SST is equipped with a modified version of Slingshot’s revolutionary new shock-absorbing IRS bridal (featured on the 2015 RPM), which provides instant feedback and response, unrivaled stability and is condensed enough that it can’t get wrapped around wingtips if rolled in the surf.
With a shape that favors serious downwind drift, unbelievable turning speed even when fully sheeted-out and a feather-light feel when shredding down the line, slashing faces and bottom-turning, the Wave SST has set a new standard for what a wave kite can do for its riders. Slingshot is thrilled to introduce a radical new kite to its 2016 lineup – the Wave SST. With a design that will redefine the meaning of a true surf-specific kite, the Wave SST (Slingshot Surf Technology) features a Compact-C canopy and compact direct-connect bridal that looks like a cross between an RPM and a Rally, but performs unlike any kite on the market.
2016 Slingshot Wave SST Technology
Updates to the 2016 Rally include relocated attachment points and a slight change in geometry, which increase handling and steering speed, reduce bar pressure and bring back a feel similar to the popular 2012 version. These updates compliment the Rally’s unrivaled wind range, low-end power, hang time, upwind performance and, bombproof construction that has kept Slingshot at the leading edge of the industry for the last 15 years.
Touted as the most versatile and user-friendly kite in Slingshot’s lineup, the Rally has continued its dramatic rise to the top since introduced to the market in 2011. Available in sizes 5-12 and 14 so kiters can build their perfect quiver, the 2016 Rally incorporates an open Delta-C profile, a direct-connect pulley-less bridal system, beefed-up surf-tough seams, fine-tuning attachment points and a number of other unique feathers to make this the ultimate all-around weapon of choice for kiters across the spectrum. Never before has one kite appealed to so many different styles of riding.
Slingshot’s 2016 kites come with our new One Pump Speed System*, which increases inflation efficiency to get you out on the water faster and with less energy than before. *5m does not include the speed system.

The 2015 Slingshot Crossbreed cuts through the chop, makes turns easily and handles knee to waist high surf due to the V spine bottom shape. The Crossbreed is the ultimate crossover of an all-around and performance touring board. Based on Slingshot’s Future Response Technology the Crossbreed is built with Wood Veneer Sandwich Construction (WVS). This proprietary construction controls the durability and flex of the board and the result is a proven lightweight, impact resistant board. The 2015 Crossbreed is a true HIGH PERFORMANCE ALL AROUND BOARD and is as stable and forgiving as they come. This wide frame will give the wariest of paddler’s full confidence in any condition.
