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.

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.
