Slingshot’s exclusive Foiling Flight School program takes much of the pain and frustration out of learning to foil. You wouldn’t learn your first kite skills with a full size kite, so why learn the basics of foiling with a full size mast?
With Foiling Flight School, you have access to three supplemental masts (15, 24 and 30 inch).
In addition to the full 35.5-inch one that come stock with Slingshot’s Hover Glide foil. The ability to start with a shorter, more manageable mast and progress in length as your skills progress will help dramatically in developing the basic coordination and muscle memory required to become a proficient foiler.

Foiling Flight School is guaranteed to get you up and foiling faster, easier and with less pain and frustration.

Flight School Package:

Comes with 15, 24 and 30 inch masts.
These can quickly and easily be installed on the Hover Glide’s stock pedestal and foil assembly.

Foiling Stages:

With the Hover Glide, you have the option of three supplemental masts (15, 24 and 30 inch).   In addition to the full 35.5-inch one that come stock with your foil. The ability to start with a shorter, more manageable mast and progress in length as your skills progress will help dramatically in developing the basic coordination and muscle memory required to become a proficient foiler.

Experienced riders can also use the short mast for practicing filing tricks in shallow waters.  Most progressive riders on twin tips prefer to practice in shallower waters.  Crashes are easier to restart compared to being in deeper waters.

Step 2:

Touch & Go Stage
24 in. mast
The 24-inch mast is an invaluable tool in earning your first extended foil rides. As you rise and fall off of the water and begin to foil longer, you’ll appreciate the easier handling a shorter mast provides. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you get the hang of foiling.  You will fall in love with the feeling of silently and smoothly gliding over the water. Once you’re getting extended and controlled rides without touching down on the water, you’ll be ready for the full 30-inch mast.

The 24-inch mast is also a good long-term option for kiters who frequent shallow water and want a little extra room between their foil and the ground.

Step 3:

Solo Stage
30 in. mast
After working your way up to the 30-inch mast, you’ll truly appreciate the Learn to Fly program and the easy progression it provided. You’ll know how to get the foil into position, how to get up properly, how to balance you center of gravity and will be ready for longer and longer rides. At this point you’ll be hooked on foiling, and best of all you will have skipped the frustrating and often painful process many people endured in learning on a full-sized setup. Once you’re comfortable foiling in mixed conditions, carving upwind, cruising downwind and touching down for basic transitions you’ll be ready to graduate to the full 35.5-inch foil.

The 30-inch masts is also a good long-term option for kiters who frequent shallow water and want a little extra room between their foil and the ground.
