Slingshot board sports.
Since 1981 Tony Logosz and his brother Jeff have dedicated themselves to the performance and design of quality water sports equipment. Years of hard work and innovation, that is spawned from Tony’s ability to think in original ways, is what fuels them today. In 1999, after numerous innovations in windsurfing, wakeboarding and other major sports, both set forth to found Slingshot. Since then Slingshot has grown to be a global brand which caters to top kiteboarders and wakeboarders in the world.

What Slingshot says…
Simulator: Covered in a thick EVA layer, the Simulator is a user-friendly board designed specifically for safer entry-level foil progression. As you try foiling for the first time, and experience your first crashes, you’ll quickly appreciate the forgiving feel and cushy padding that covers the top and rails of the board. You’ll also appreciate the extra length and buoyancy of the Simulator; it will help you get up and going and makes the first stage of bouncing up and down on the water much more forgiving. Once you’ve progressed beyond the first learning stages, the Simulator remains a fun freeride board you can use to practice transitions, toeside riding, jumping and more aggressive carving. The padded top and extra volume will come in handy through every stage of your progression. It’ll also come in handy when you’re asked to teach friends and family.
