WAKEFOILER TIP OF THE WEEK: LONG LINE + SHORT MAST = SUCCESS!
Learning to foil has been an absolute blast for everyone at our offices and re-invigorated us all with that excitement of the first time doing something totally new. We’ve picked up a few tips and tricks along the way and are excited to share our discoveries with you so you can find the easiest path to success. Tip #1: Long Line + Short Mast! Start with the 15-inch mast and a FULL LENGTH ROPE. Avoid the wake and the turbulence behind the center of the boat. The flats are the best place to start at slow speeds anywhere from 10-14 mph depending on the riders weight…

THE #BENSQUAD AKA
SLINGSHOT TEAM – 2017
It’s a new year and we’re stoked to be riding the best line-up of boards to date! At your request we have the all NEW Ballistic Base for the park, New Flex Tips for locking into presses, Carbon Bedrock Inserts, and all new mounting / closure systems on our boot line. We’re stoked for what 2017 will bring and can’t wait to see what Slingshot board riders will be able to accomplish across the globe…including YOU!
Featured in this new edit is team rider and close friend Ben Leclair who as some of you may already know took a heavy crash towards the end of the 2016 season and needs our support to conquer his injury and join us on the water again. Ben has always been one of the smoothest and most stylish riders to watch and laid it all on the line in the name of progressing his riding. If you’d like to help support Ben’s recovery we encourage you to follow the link below, and of course, enjoy this new edit of the entire team during our 2017 photoshoot at the Shredtown Ranch.

GO BIGGER IN 2017 – WHY BIGGER BOARDS ARE BETTER
The revolution started back in 2015 when we released the first Nomad and riders have been sizing up behind the boat and in the park ever since. In the 2017 line you’ll see that there is yet another addition to the plus size category with our 152cm Terrain. The reason is this: Our manufacturing process now allows us to venture into these larger sizes without hindering the boards performance with excess weight. The boards remain light and maneuverable while increasing your stability from takeoff to touchdown and everywhere in between. It’s a fun new feel on the water that you simply have to experience. For those who need proof, check out this video of Aaron Gunn on top of the 152cm terrain.
