2019 Slingshot Hover Glide FSurf Foil
FREEDOM OF CHOICE
Ride waves the way you want to not the way you have to. Easy to catch a wave. This is one of the best Surf Foils on the market. Once you are up it rides waves effortlessly without the need for excessive “monkey pumping”. Unless of course you want to pump, then go for it on the way out. IMPORTANT NOTE: There are plenty of surf foils out there with tons of lift, but they tend to be super slow and can’t keep up with most waves without pumping to generate speed. Faster surf foils, meanwhile, need more speed to get going and don’t really work for the small, rolling waves surf foilers love so much. The 2019 Slingshot Hover Glide FSurf Foil package, equipped with our new INFINITY wing, is the best of both worlds. A large outline provides all the low-end lift and pump-ability you’ll ever need, while its unique inverted gull wing shape allows for much faster top-end speeds than foils with similar surface area. Meaning you can ride a smaller surf foilboard. It will fit any foilboard on the market with the twin track system.
The Infinity 76 is a great all-rounder setup. It will handle waves from 1ft up to 8ft. Add in a longer 71cm mast for choppy water / better pumping down the track. Larger 48cm rear wing also available which increases pumpability and glide on waves. If you are over 85kg however we would recommend going to the Infinity 84 setup, this is going to give you the extra lift needed and mean you won't have to work as hard.

All Hover Glide wings have been re-engineered for 2019 with new carbon composite construction. Making them lighter weight and meaning you can run less volume on your surf foilboard. The magic feel of the Infinity 76 comes from its inverted gull wing shape that essentially gives you the easiest lift and glide performance. The great lift and stability at low speeds makes learning to surf foil a breeze, but fear not, this is not a wing you will outgrow. Its unique shape will make turning and pumping feel like second nature. After all what fun would riding waves be if you couldn’t turn? With the new Infinity wing, you will be making endless lap around your friends.
This setup has been long awaited by surfers and finally, the time has come. The Slingshot FSurf Surf Foil now has a larger and more efficient front wing with the Infinity 76cm. It has noticeably earlier lift than the previous Gamma 68cm (H2) wing with a far higher top end speed. This is the ultimate do it all foil which allows even heavier riders in tiny swell to get out on one of the most durable and affordable system out there. The Slingshot Hover Glide Platform has been modular since 2016.
The magic of this setup seems to come from the fact that it has a great low-end lift but remains comfortable much higher into the speed range than you would expect. Also, it keeps its momentum with excellent glide characteristics, which means you can fly longer without pumping your legs into oblivion. The 61cm mast is long enough for most riders and will give you a little more forgiveness with the bottom on those smaller swells. However there is a 71cm mast which is perfect for those choppy conditions.
Kiteboarders, do not let the name fool you. If you are on the heavier side of 80kg ish this foil will take your lightly powered freeriding to the next level. For that reason, it is the new favourite of a lot of our customers.
