Folks, we've got some big news. We just made friends with some incredible people. They are a group of electrical engineers who apparently spent the last few years watching Back to the Future, the X-Games, and Lords of Dogtown on repeat. Here's what they have to show for it:
"Uhhhhhhh, what!?" you're thinking. "Is that some sort of single-wheeled self-balancing mountain board with a super powerful and lightweight motor (capable of propelling the rider uphill and up to 15mph), a non-exploding battery with a range of 6+ miles and only 20mins charge time, and BRAKE LIGHTS!?"
The short answer? Yes.
The long answer? Yeeeeesssssss... Check out this page for more technical info on the OneWheel.
This badassery of an element will be available in the shop March 15! But don't wait...they will go...FAST.
You watch them gliding gracefully through the water. The wind is barely whispering, yet they fly along effortlessly. It isn't until one is under your feet that you understand just how difficult and frustrating it can be.
When you first learned to drive, did you do it in a supercar on the highway at 80+mph? When you first learned to swim, did you do it in the middle of the ocean during a storm?
Of course not!
Since the beginning of the sport, aspiring foilers have been required to step onto a full-sized foil and throw caution to the wind in order to master the basics.
Slingshot made sure this won't happen again.

This past weekend we held the Cabrinha 2016 Collection Demo, thanks to Evan Netsch for bringing out all the goods, and to our loyal customers for showing up and supporting the cause.
The party that followed was pretty epic, to say the least. Lowcountry boil, grilling, booze, bonfire on the beach and marshmallows. What else can you ask for? Perfect weather? Check. No mosquitoes? Check (if you were by the fire).

We recently had an interview with RootsRated writer Conley Crimmins. We are stoked to be featured as a big part of our ever growing Charleston's Kiteboarding Community! The interview features our Team Rider Emily Collins and our Shop Manager Alejandro Ferreyros. Check it out:
The 2015 Chucktown Showdown was hosted on September 19th at Brittlebank Park, in historic Downtown Charleston. The event hosted top level paddlers of all ages, and benefited the South Carolina Special Olympics. A great time and a great cause.
We got to hang out with some of our local business neighbors like Odyssey Board Shop and Ocean Fitness, and enjoy some delicious food from a few different food trucks, a must for an outdoors event like this one.
Congrats to all the participants and to the winners of each class. Sealand Team Rider Corey Taylor took 1st in the 12'6 Long Course division, stoked on the win!
