Slingshot SlingWing V2
Do you want the thrill of being powered by the wind over water, land or snow? You have decent board skills, but maybe little to no sailing or kiting experience? No problem! You will get the hang of winging right out of the gate. The SlingWing’s unique appeal comes from how simple it is to use and the freedom you feel using it. Just stand on your board, hold the wing at the proper angle and off you go. To ease power, just sheet out or let go with your backhand and the wing drifts with you like a paper aeroplane.
Wingsurfing has exploded as a discipline over the last year and Slingshot has been taking notes. The all-new SlingWing V2 has an ultra-lightweight construction; half the weight of the V1 original. A light-weight build provides for effortless wrist control and oscillation cancellation while luffing the wing and leaving the power behind you. Beginners will benefit from reduced arm fatigue in light air conditions, while advanced riders will find it dramatically easier to get the wing flying for deep water starts on tiny boards.
Other features include 5 soft, comfortable handles which help you get just the right angle for that perfect, endless ride.
A Cambered Dihedral shape gives you stability and lets you harmonize the wind, body and board into speed and control.
Lastly, the SlingWing V2 is made of extra tough D4 canopy material that is matched with double leading-edge bladder seams allowing for higher PSI inflation and more added tension across the wing. That means NO FLAPPING.
The attention to detail extends past the wing itself. At Slingshot, we understand how fun it is to take the SlingWing into the waves, and that getting rinsed is part of the game.

Maintenance tip - When drying your wing after use leave it inflated or inflate at home in an area where the wing cannot be blown around by the wind. DO NOT hang and shake an uninflated wing, the strut bladder will dislodge from the front section of the strut, and then the next time you inflate it is likely to burst, avoid this issue by always drying the wing with the leading edge and strut inflated (does not need to be full pressure)
