Slingshot Wakefoiler Package 2018
Slingshot is excited to add the Wakefoiler to our 2018 wake lineup. This industry first is an all-in-one package that includes our custom Wakefoiler board, two masts and a foil designed for user-friendly riding.
Developed out of a lifelong curiosity of what it feels like to fly, the Hover Glide FWake has re-invigorated the boating experience. Fly behind virtually ANY towboat, and have the ride of your life regardless of conditions, wake size, etc. It’s like flying an airplane with your feet. Riding the Foil takes you back to the good old days of learning a new discipline behind the boat and the grin from ear to ear that follows is inevitable. We recommend you start slow, with the short mast and a long rope to ease into the flying experience.
This year we added FCSII fin boxes to the base so riders can remove the foil and wakesurf the deck as well (FCS II fins sold separately).
Package comes with: Complete setup- all foil components and hardware, two masts, Wake Foil board and padded foil cover.

The Wakefoiler package comes with 15-inch and 24-inch aluminum masts, which can be interchanged quickly and easily. The incremental lengths are designed for ease of progression. The concept is simple: Start with the shorter, more manageable mast until you get the hang of it, then graduate to the longer, more versatile mast when you’re ready.
15-inch mast: You'll experience faster progression, less pain and less frustration with the Wakefoiler’s 15-inch mast. With a short mast you’ll get used to the foil under your feet, you’ll get a feeling for subtle movements, balance and weight distribution needed and will progress with less risk than with a longer mast.
24-inch mast: Once you’re comfortable getting the board into position, getting up proficiently and are gaining controlled rides on the foil, you’ll be ready for the 24-inch mast. Switching to the longer mast will give you more mobility and more range of motion behind the boat. You’ll quickly gain a feeling for the fine-tuned control foiling requires, and as you progress you’ll be amazed at how much control you have and how agile you can be with the foil.
Any craft, any condition
You no longer need a perfectly calm day, or a boat that puts out the perfect wake. With the Wakefoiler, you can ride behind essentially any craft with a motor, in essentially any condition. The pull is amazingly light, which means you can ride longer without your arms getting tired and, once you’re up and foiling, you can rise above rough conditions for a butter smooth feeling like snowboarding on the best powder of the season.
User-friendly Freeride design
Hydrofoils come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, and even subtle differences in design can make a big difference in performance. Slingshot’s Wakefoil is a proven design that matches the performance needs of behind-the-boat riding perfectly. It’s a friendly foil that planes early, has a relatively slow bottom-end speed, a medium top-end speed and is extremely stable in the water.
As foil’s go, the Wakefoil is relatively heavy due to its aluminum and fiberglass construction. This yields two advantages: It’s one of the most durable foils available, and the weight provides stability, which translates to forgiving handling for beginners and agility as you progress.
