Standard foot straps are a useful tool for foiling, and it can be easy to get your feet stuck and increase the risk of injury, particularly to the ankles. This is especially true during the early stages of foiling progression, when crashing at awkward angles is common. The Half Strap is the happy-medium. They provide leverage to get the board in position and keep it secure and they’re extremely easy to disengage from during a crash.
Sleek, smooth and stealth: The all-carbon Silencer is a fast and agile high-end foil designed for riders who know exactly what they’re looking for and appreciate the high-performance characteristics of all-carbon construction.

At Slingshot our philosophy has always been based on fun. Our goal is to design gear that will get you on the water in any riding condition. The 2015 Turbine creates a new definition for what is ride able by getting you up and going in wind speeds as low as 5-6 knots. We attribute the range and versatility of the 2015 Turbine to our proven Open Delta C platform and our 5-point cascading bridle attachment system. This critical combination creates a consistent smooth feel throughout the power stroke along with direct bar input. Proven improvements include an aspect ratio and reduced LE diameter that work together to create more grunt and power without sacrificing turning speed, efficiency or upwind performance.
The Turbine has our proven mini strut technology that makes it a full structured five-strut kite. It achieves the same benefits in the air with no hassles on the beach.
Customer satisfaction and feedback from our larger Turbine riders has been so positive we added a new 15 meter! The smaller Turbine is designed for light to medium weight riders or riders that are very efficient. The Turbine 15 combined with our new foil board is a deadly combination in the lightest of wind.
PACKAGE INCLUDES: Turbine Kite, Kite Backpack, Bladder Repair Kit, Quick-Start Guide, Pump Hose with One Pump Speed Valve Adapter.
The Zephyr allows me to ride when I should be mowing the grass, but I need my fix. Call me crazy, but I love to learn new unhooked tricks on the Zephyr in light winds. It pulls like a boat, remains stable when you miss a pass not looping you off down the beach. When you blow a trick and the kite ends up on the water, it still amazes me that it relaunches effortlessly even in sub 10 knot winds! If you dial a trick on a 17m you’re away laughing once the wind picks up and you’re throwing down on your 10m C4. Cruise around, run a muck… spray some paddle boarders, you know the saying… Historically big kites didn’t loop, the Zephyr has got this sorted without the need for troublesome pulleys. If you’re out there and the wind picks up, no worries, continue to load that rail and boost some air. Long live the stylish boned out snowboard grabs.
