Slingshot Glide 2018 Kite Board >>
Slingshot Dually Footpads available as a separate item:
Light wind enthusiasts challenge marginal conditions in the search for the ultimate soul searching freeride session. For the seventh consecutive year, the Slingshot Glide 2018 has proven its dominance in the light wind category.
Offered in 149cm and 159cm lengths, the Glide’s extra surface area will, as the name suggests, get you up and gliding across the water with significantly less wind than a standard twin tip.
The Glide’s narrow width and longer effective water line ensures adequate surface area that will get you going in the lightest of winds. The narrow outline provides the rider more control over the edge This precision control allows the rider to better manage the power of their kite, creating more apparent wind and results in more speed on the water.
The Glide gets going first, hauls up wind, and is the highest performance board available in the lightwind category. When the wind drops, keep your kite in the air and simply pick up a Glide. It is so versatile and fun to ride you’ll be grinning and ripping as others are packing up to head home. A true session saver.
Advantages such as responsiveness, stability and consistency makes the Slingshot Glide the perfect upwind lightwind board. The Glide is the ideal compliment to any quiver. The simplicity of this board means less kites and more time on the water.
Nothing beats this board in marginal or light wind conditions. If you are in the search for the ultimate soul searching freeride session, your search is over. The Slingshot Glide is your answer!
