Slingshot have released their well thought out learn-to-foil system, the “Foil Flight School”. Details are below, with accompanying instructional film. Great to see a brand bringing this relatively new technology into the realms of the beginners… Nice work Slingshot!
Foiling is an experience unlike anything else in kiteboarding. No matter how good of a kiter you are or what category of the sport you fit into, the sensation of gliding silently and efficiently over the water, and the pure freedom foiling provides, is positively addicting.
Introducing Foiling Flight School: This industry-first program suddenly makes learning to foil a whole lot easier…
Flight School Product is a simple do-it-yourself learning tool consisting of three separate masts of varying lengths: 15” (38cm), 24” (61cm) and 30” (76cm).
