From wakeboarding to wakesurfing, and now Wake Foiling. …. The evolution continues.
Imagine feeling like you are snowboarding in 3ft of fresh, untouched powder. Or, floating above the water, from turn to turn in any water condition. That, is wake foiling. And that feeling inspired us to create our all new Wakefoil and what is called Wake Foil Academy, where you can easily learn how to take up this new sport.
This free online course is designed to teach you everything you need to know about learning to hydrofoil. Our step-by-step teaching method gets you up and gliding above the water with relative ease.
Whether you’re interested or already invested in the exciting sport of hydro foiling, Foil Academy is your starting point for a whole new level of fun on the water.

Refined by legendary Slingshot designer and foiling aficionado, Tony Logosz, the Hover Glide is a high-performance foil that delivers early takeoff, stable handling and smooth maneuverability. With decades of R&D experience and an intimate knowledge of foil dynamics, Logosz is an authority in foil design.
He developed the Hover Glide for all-around performance freeriding, using aluminum mast and fuselage and composite components that make this the most affordable and robust foil of its class and caliber on the market. The Hover Glide features a 35.5-inch mast and a classic front-J gullwing shape with swept wings, mild winglets off the front and arching rear wings. The result is an incredibly stable foil with a medium top-end speed and a solid all-around feel. It can be mounted on any of Slingshot’s foil-specific boards and features separate fuselage and wing components that can be broken-down into three parts for easy storage/transport and replaced if needed.
Foiling Flight School program: The Hover Glide is the exclusive foil for Slingshot's multi-mast Flight School program designed specifically for user-friendly foiling progression. The program allows newcomers to start with a shorter, more manageable mast and progress in length as their skills progress. This is a guaranteed system that will take much of the pain, frustration and intimidation out of learning to foil.
