Slingshot Hover Glide NF2 2016
Good for the beginner foil kitesurfer
The Hover Glide NF2 from Slingshot is made to learn foil kitesurfing in a short period of time. This foil has an easy start, feels very stable and with very smooth maneuverability. The Hover Glide has been developed for allround performance which makes freeriding possible while foiling. The mast and hull are made of aluminum which makes it strong, robust and affordable.
The Hover Glide is equipped with a 90 centimeter (35.5-inch) long mast and has a classic front-J wing shape. The result is an incredibly stable allround foil with an average top-end speed. The Foil fits under all foil boards from Slingshot such as the Dwarf Craft or Alien Air. You can divide the foil into three pieces so you can easily take it with you.
Unique to the Hover Glide is that you can also use other mast lengths 38 cm (15 inches), 50 cm (20 inches) and 76 cm (30 inches). These masts can be ordered separately and are part of the Slingshot foil learning program. A shorter mast makes it possible to learn to foil faster and easier (see video below)
Mast + hull height: 93cm
Total weight: 5.2 kg
