Slingshot FWIND1 Windsurf Hydrofoil Package
sailing on a windsurfer with the Hover Glide FWIND1 hydrofoil.
The FWIND1 hydrofoil
is powered by the H2 wing and is part of the new 2018 Slingshot interchangeable
foil system. The H2 wing is larger and designed to be used for all around
foiling. The larger surface area gives you control, stability and an earlier
take off. After mastering getting the
board up on the foil you’ll be able to push yourself and really lean against
the foil like you would your fin and jibe like you’re on rails!
Although we have not
tried this yet, we have had reports of people using this H2 setup with a
surfboard to prone paddle into waves and foil. The FWIND1 with H2 wing will be
a staple in everyone’s quiver of hydrofoil gear.

Slingshots 2018 Interchangeable Foil System
Most of us are into different watersports and anytime we can
use the same gear to crossover into our other passions it’s a huge bonus!
Slingshots here to help with their new interchangeable system. Different wings,
masts, fuselages, and attachment plates to adapt to however you want to foil.
All the parts are interchangeable and work together so you only need on base
system and can add the other pieces you need on a piece by piece basis.
Switch Fuse (Patent Pending)
Find your personal comfort zone. The ability to adjust the
wing position fore or aft in relationship to your stance is critical for
balancing your rig, stance and overall sailing position. Slingshot’s Switch
Fuse is an ingenious design that allows the foil to be configured in two
different positions to accommodate varying board setups, rider preferences and
Rear Wing + Optimized Tail Mount:
Rider Simplicity. Universal one design that works with all
front wings for all disciplines, in any configuration. The tail wing mount is
solid, stable and safe. No need to shim your wing, ever.
Flat-Loc, Fuse-to-Wing Connector
Windsurf foiling, carving, jibbing and jumping puts enormous
forces on the fuselage-to-wing connection. Our Flat-Loc™ Fuse-to-Wing
connection is designed like a wrench on a nut. The load is married to the fuse
and the wings, with no load on the bolts. Unlike bolt-on wings, the Flat-Loc™
system is safe, secure and smart.
Hover Glide Tuttle Connector
Integrated Tuttle base designed for Deep Tuttle boxes
delivers maximum strength and elimination of movement. Designed with an
integrated base flange that transfer loads over a larger area of the board, not
just the Tuttle box. This feature is critical if you expect to use a foil with
an existing board. A regular Tuttle box is not reinforced to handle the loads
of the foil.
Slingshot uses the same Hover Glide aluminum mast platform
for all our foil disciplines (kite, wake, sup and wind). Our masts have been
tested and proven for years, by thousands of foil-boarders in three other foil
sports. It is the stiffest and strongest aluminum mast on the market. Our masts
are 2.5X thicker than the competition and designed specifically to take the
enormous loads that windsurfing puts on the foil and mast. Extruded from
aircraft aluminum, each mast is optimized by CnC machining to reduced drag and
eliminate vibration. Masts are also tempered and anodized for saltwater
Nothing beats the strength of this precision milled Titanium
