Learn about our Slingshot SlingWing V2

Our SlingWing V2 is a wing-foiling wing.

According to Slingshot Sports, "Wingsurfing has exploded as a discipline over the last year and Slingshot has been taking notes. The all new SlingWing V2 has an ultra-light weight construction, half the weight of the V1 original. A light-weight build provides for effortless wrist control and oscillation cancellation while luffing the wing and leaving the power behind you. Beginners will benefit from reduced arm fatigue in light air conditions, while advanced riders will find it dramatically easier to get the wing flying for deep water starts on tiny boards."

"Other features include 5 soft, comfortable handles which help you get just the right angle for that perfect, endless ride. A Cambered Dihedral shape gives you stability and lets you harmonize the wind, body and board into speed and control. Lastly, the SlingWing V2 is made of extra tough D4 canopy material that is matched with double leading-edge bladder seams allowing for higher PSI inflation and more added tension across the wing. That means NO FLAPPING."

"The attention to detail extends past the wing itself. At Slingshot we understand how fun it is to take the SlingWing into the waves, and that getting rinsed is part of the game.
 

These details may help you decide if this wing is right for you.

  • It’s light weight: The SlingWing V2 comes in at half the weight of original wings.

  • It offers easy one-handed wrist control while luffing or surfing with no oscillation or nose diving.

  • Its low-end power provides the necessary pull for getting up on all size boards and deep water starts.

  • The soft handles offer total control and amazing comfort for hours of shredding.

  • The stability of the cambered dihedral design lets you harmonize the wind, body and foil into speed and control.

Our Slingshot B2 and B3 trainer kites are for learning how to fly a kite in preparation for learning to kite board.

According to Slingshot Sports, "The addiction starts here. If you want to learn the basics or teach the basics, these are the tools to spread the obsession. Getting the right start is the most important aspect of learning to kiteboard, and for almost everyone this means starting with a trainer kite. "

"Slingshot’s B2 is the original trainer kite that started it all. With the B2 you will discover the gold standard in learning kite flying skills in a safe, efficient and affordable manner. If you are serious about learning to kiteboard, a Slingshot trainer kite is a small price to pay for an invaluable, timeless and fun piece of equipment. You can fly your B2 anywhere with wind and open space. It works great on land, grass, at the beach or even on snow. No water needed."

"Slingshot’s B3 light traction kite is a fun, affordable and powerful piece of equipment ideal for a wide range of wind-related activities.

In light wind, the B3 is a great tool for practicing basic kite flying skills and kite control. In stronger wind, it’s a powerful tool for more advanced kite control, arm and shoulder strength and hand-eye coordination. The B3 is considerably more powerful than Slingshot’s smaller B2 trainer kite. For beginners, all-around family use and use in varying winds, we recommend starting with a B2 first; then graduating to the larger B3."
