The Slingshot Dwarfcraft 4’6” has great performance features to help riders both learn and advance their foil skills from the basic to intermediate and beyond. Unlike the thin and flat decked, twintip style deck, the thicker, sandwich style construction of the Dwarfcraft allows for bottom and top deck shaping that’s more dynamic and compliments the input and the reactivity and response from the foil. It has enough volume and float to learn with but its not so large as to be cumbersome once skills progress. The nice scooped nose and thicker volume also assist the rider with more cushioned touch downs, greater stability when off a foil and greater control to pump back onto a foil. The top deck features a nice corduroy EVA foam pad and the deck itself has some subtle concave that adds to the overall reactivity, comfort and responsive feel. The bottom also features a track mounting system that is essential for learning to foil or when riding with foot straps as it allows the rider to tune the desired lift and front and back foot balance that guides the lift from the wings underfoot. The rails on the Dwarfcraft bottom are also angled and thinned out which make it easier to tip the foil on its edge for waterstarts. This is an all around freeride foil deck that’s suitable for any level of rider, has enough volume and float to learn and progress with, but is still compact enough to not feel cumbersome as skills progress.
