Slingshot Hope Craft is designed and tested by World Champion Foiler Fred Hope. Based on one of the best-selling foil boards, Dwarf Craft. The board is specially designed to cater to Fred's needs. A stiffer core to give a more direct connection to the board. More durable construction to withstand the landing after a big jump. More volume on the nose of the board to help recovery. This is one of the most exciting foil boards we have been waiting for.
Fred Hope has been foiling for a long time. The world champion knows what works and what doesn't. We decided to give him free reign to design exactly what he wanted. The result is the all-new Hope Craft V1. Fred is always trying new tricks on his foil, and he wanted slightly more volume in the nose than the smaller boards we make so that he could recover from touchdowns after radical maneuvers. He also needed stiffness. You need that hero-level stiffness when moving at speed and heading into turns with serious pressure. The Hope Craft V1 takes true performance to the next level. The Hope Craft is your ticket to glide if you are looking for a board that can keep up with your progression.

WHY YOU'LL LOVE IT
- This is the most responsive, performance-driven foil board we have ever built
- Premium lightweight construction makes this board extremely nimble beneath your feet
- The stiffest foil board we make delivers high-pressure turns and amazing upwind charging
NEW MAX VOLUME NOSE - We built and placed more volume in the nose on the Hope Craft to aid in recoveries on touchdowns and water starts. This added volume will make learning and mastering new tricks easier.
BEVELED RAILS - Beveled rails prevent the board from grabbing the water when you touch down, which allows you to skip off the water and keep going instead of grinding to a halt.
CORDUROY EVA - Super soft EVA features a corduroy texture that provides tons of grip (and is as pleasing to your feet as it is to the eye).
ADJUSTABLE FOIL TRACK MOUNT - The adjustable mount allows you to slide your foil forward and aft on your board to fine-tune how it feels and performs based on your size, ability, and personal preference.
