SKU# 16236003

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 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 Slingshots 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.

Unique to the Hover Glide, incremental mast lengths of 15,


20 and 30 inches are available in addition to the stock 35.5-
inch mast through Slingshots exclusive Foiling Flight School
program. The 15 and 20 inch masts are primarily designed
for entry-level progression, while the 30-inch mast is for
progression and shallow-water foiling.

FOILING FLIGHT SCHOOL PROGRAM

Slingshots exclusive Foiling Flight School program takes much of the pain and frustration out of learning to foil. You wouldnt
learn your first kite skills with a full size kite, so why learn the basics of foiling with a full size mast?

With the Hover Glide, you have the option of three supplemental masts (15, 24 and 30 inch) in addition to the full 35.5-inch one
that come stock with your foil. The ability to start with a shorter, more manageable mast and progress in length as your skills
progress will help dramatically in developing the basic coordination and muscle memory required to become a proficient foiler.

Due to their aluminum construction, these masts are remarkably affordable and will be available to purchase individually or as
a discounted package to best serve your needs and maximize your options.

What follows is a breakdown of our three-step Foiling Flight School program.

WHAT COMES TAXI TOUCH-&-GO SOLO


IN THE BOX STAGE STAGE STAGE

PAGE 13
STEP 1
TAXI STAGE
15-INCH MAST
Getting a feel for how your foil behaves is much easier, and safer, with a shorter and more manageable mast. This stage
is called the Taxi stage, as in an airplane taxiing around the runway. Staring with the 15-inch mast will help you master the
basic foiling skills like how to properly carry your foil, how to swim and body drag with it, how to get it in position to water
start and how to get it under your feet and moving through the water. With a shorter mast, youll learn these basic steps
much faster and easier than if you were struggling with a full-size one. Once youre comfortable with the foil beneath your
feet, have a basic understanding of how it behaves, can taxi back and forth like a regular surfboard and are able to ride
short distances out of the water via the foil, youll be ready to graduate to the 24-inch mast.

PAGE 14
STEP 2
TOUCH-&-GO STAGE
24-INCH MAST
The 24-inch mast is an invaluable tool in earing your first extended foil rides. As you rise and fall off of the water and begin
to foil longer in between, youll appreciate the easier handling a shorter mast provides. Youll be amazed at how quickly
you get the hang of foiling and will fall in love with the feeling of silently and smoothly gliding over the water. Once youre
getting extended and controlled rides without touching down on the water, youll be ready for the full 30-inch mast.

The 24-inch mast is also a good long-term option for kiters who frequent shallow water and want a little extra room
between their foil and the ground.

PAGE 15
STEP 3
SOLO STAGE
30-INCH MAST
After working your way up to the 30-inch mast, youll truly appreciate the Learn to Fly program and the easy progression
it provided. Youll know how to get the foil into position, how to get up properly, how to balance you center of gravity and
will be ready for longer and longer rides. At this point youll be hooked on foiling, and best of all you will have skipped the
frustrating and often painful process many people endured in learning on a full-sized setup. Once youre comfortable
foiling in mixed conditions, carving upwind, cruising downwind and touching down for basic transitions youll be ready to
graduate to the full 35.5-inch foil.

The 30-inch masts is also a good long-term option for kiters who frequent shallow water and want a little extra room
between their foil and the ground.

40.15 MAST
SKU# 16236007

The only foil you will ever need: Featuring all-carbon


construction, the Silencer is stiff, strong and incredibly
light. The result is instant feedback to the rider, with no
noise or interference caused by vibration, high speeds or
choppy conditions. With a balance of early takeoff, stability
and smooth handling, along with precision maneuverability,
aggressive edging and an incredibly fast top end, the
Silencer is a foil youll grow into but will never outgrow.

A lighter, more buoyant foil allows for a smaller, less buoyant


board: In addition to its superior handling and performance,
the Silencers ultra-lightweight construction makes it almost
neutrally buoyant. Not only does this make maneuvering
your board and getting it into position much easier, it also
opens up a wide range of possibilities for the size, shape and
buoyancy of board needed for foiling. The Silencer is perfect
for minimalist boards and skate style decks, for example.

The silencer is made proudly in the USA: With worlds


greatest testing grounds and the kiteboarding mecca
and the of the Columbia River Gorge in its front yard, LP
Composites has refined their processes over the last 20
years and is now one of the industrys premier carbon
composite manufacturers. Each Silencer is hand built in a
small facility, allowing for the intimate attention to quality
and detail that Logosz and the Slingshot brand demands.

DWARFCRAFT 42

42 x 18 x 2 1/4
SKU# 16236005

Featuring the same high-end construction as Slingshots


lineup of wakesurfers, the Dwarfcraft comes in two different
lengths to appeal to two different styles of foiling. The 42
is designed for skilled riders who want a short, playful and
very agile board that will feel similar to a wakeskate and is
an ideal size for traveling, while the 54 is a more traditional
all-around board that will appeal to a wide range of users and
perform well in any condition.

The Dwarfcraft employs Slingshots rugged EPS core and


fiberglass-wrapped construction and is inlaid with PVC
stringers for added torsional strength and durability. The
board is thinner, lighter and narrower than the Alien Air,
making it a great choice for riders looking for a lower-profile
and, subsequently, lower priced ride.

Design features include aggressively chined rails to create a


separate edging surface when the board touches the water
while edging on the foil, moderate front-end rocker to help
prevent pearling and nose-diving, an adjustable strut mount
that allows the foil to be moved forward and aft depending
on rider preferences and skill level, footstrap inserts that can
be setup in two-strap (surf style) or three-strap (race style)
configurations and a full-length EVA deckpad and concave
deck that functions similar to a skateboard in providing
turning and edge control with very subtle movement

* Straps sold separately.

for all aspects of foiling. Its flip tip snub nose design
offers decreased swing weight and still offers confidence
for touch and goes with the foil. The chined rail bottom
feature helps reduce drag if the board touches the water
while aggressively edging through big chop. Constructed
with durable carbon composite rails and strut
reinforcements. It has a concave deck, full deck pad, and
footstrap inserts. The Alien Air can be ridden with 3 straps
(race style) 2 straps (surf style) or strapless.*
