While the FSurf's ability to get up on foil, ride ridiculously slow or darn near blazing fast, and carve with the best of them is on point, the Alien Air's balanced shape makes board ups, touchdowns, and board control easy enough for beginners yet performance oriented enough to satisfy the experienced foiler, too. Together they are a team that can get you foiling in even the slightest of winds or for the ambitious, this same combo can get you a ticket into foilsurfing scene.
2019 Slingshot FSurf Foil
The 2019 Slingshot Hover Glide FSurf is Slingshot's go to foil kit for surfing. Featuring the Infinity 76cm wing paired with a 42cm rear wing, the FSurf has a ton of lift. Hosting 1534 cm2 of surface area, the FSurf gets on foil at just 8 knots yet remains in its speed range all the way up to 22 knots. This extensive range allows you to catch waves with ease and then blaze down the line in perfect control.
THE FORCE TAKEAWAY
This is one of our absolute favorite foils for surfing and kiting. It's not often a product comes around that garners so much praise from every single one of our coaches and customers. As foilsurfing has been taking off, we've been loving this wing for its ability to ride next to nothing. Since that's what it is designed to do, that shouldn't be too much of a surprise, but when we realized how exceptional it is for kitefoiling we were floored. Where other surf foils are thick, this one is thin, and there's something about this design that lets it ride super slow AND fast, too. If you want the best of both worlds and a versatility that is bar-none, definitely check this one out!
SLINGSHOT'S PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Ride waves the way you want to not the way you have to.
Easy to catch a wave. Once you are up it rides waves effortlessly without the need for excessive “monkey pumping”. Unless of course you want to pump, then go for it on the way out. IMPORTANT NOTE: There are plenty of foils out there with tons of lift, but they tend to be super slow and can’t keep up with most waves without pumping to generate speed. Faster foils, meanwhile, need more speed to get going and don’t really work for the small, rolling waves foilers love so much. The FSurf package, equipped with our new INFINITY 76 wing, is the best of both worlds. A large outline provides all the low-end lift and pump-ability you’ll ever need, while its unique inverted gull wing shape allows for much faster top-end speeds than foils with similar surface area.
For wake foilers, The FSURF is ideal for those with the foil fever who already know how to handle more lift at slower speeds and hope to ride every wave in sight, both large and small. 3rd wave is a breeze, 4th and 5th are calling your name too. Surf ANY boat, and even ride the flats with a little whip and the power of the pump. This foil is also suggested for heavier riders in the 200 + lb range.
All Hover Glide wings have been re-engineered for 2019 with new carbon composite construction. The magic feel of the Infinity 76 comes from its inverted gull wing shape that essentially gives you the easiest lift and glide performance. The great lift and stability at low speeds makes learning to foil a breeze, but fear not, this is not a wing you will outgrow. Its unique shape will make turning and pumping feel like second nature. After all what fun would riding waves be if you couldn’t turn? With the new Infinity wing, you will be making endless lap around your friends.

2019 Slingshot Alien Air Foilboard
The Slingshot Alien Air 4'8" Foil Kiteboard is a perfectly balanced foil specific board that blends performance with ease of use. Whether you are new to the foil or working on advanced tricks and transitions, the Alien Air is a timeless choice.
THE FORCE TAKEAWAY
The Alien Air offers a happy medium between a "microboard" and a larger, more beginner oriented foilboard. It's a great foil specific board well suited to do anything a foilboard aught. The slightly larger size and fat tail give it a significantly more stability in the water giving you a real advantage on touch downs. This is a great board for jumping with its kicked up nose and fat tail outline. We recommend the Alien Air to newer foilers, larger foilers, and foilers wanting to jump.
SLINGSHOT'S PRODUCT DESCRIPTION: U.F.O.- UNDISPUTED FOILING ORIGINAL
More people have learned to foil with the Alien Air than any other craft in kiteboarding, and the beauty of this board is, they never want to give it up, no matter how good they get. All the features that make the Alien Air so user-friendly and forgiving also make it a timeless choice for playful tricks and transitions, jumping and expert-level freeriding. When we introduced the Alien Air to foiling, it was indeed an Unidentified Flying Object. People had never seen anything like it- short, wide, fat, concave with tons of front-end rocker and funky beveled edges. Today it goes by the same letters but a different acronym: Undisputed Foiling Original
This is a proven all-around shape for versatile freeride performance. The board’s wide profile makes it stable and user-friendly, while a moderate concave creates agile turning as you put your weight out toward the edges. Two key features of the Alien Air are its thick profile and scooped nose. These combine for easy starts, slow takeoff speeds and, most importantly, the ability to touch down, bounce off the water and continue riding rather than nose diving and crashing. Slingshot’s signature sliding track system lets you adjust the position of the foil to fine-tune performance depending on rider ability and preference and the conditions.

- Thick profile and scooped nose = less pearling, less crashing
- Lots of room to walk around, great for transitions
