Slingshot hydrofoil

Postby Kamikuza » Mon Oct 13, 2014 5:32 am

Saw it yesterday, but can't see it on the homepage. Wasn't really paying much attention cos Patrick was riding :)

Half-plate shaped front wing with down-turned tips, thin but narrow rear with wing tips too, triangular sectioned wing strut all in lovely carbon and the board looked like a smaller, thinner, TT style version of the bigger high volume boards...

FWIW.

Sounds like MHL is making the foil and Slingshot just makes the board:

I believe that is a foil he built himself and the board is a wakeskate from SS.

Not the SS foil.
