The Slingshot FSurf Infinity 76 is back again for 2020 and continues to be one of the most versatile, multi-discipline foil models of the extensive Hover Glide foil series. It features a large surface area with lots of lift for light wind foiling and low speed carving with less low speed stall and quick and stable pumping power. The unique inverted gull wing shape also promotes reactive turning and more control at a surprisingly comfortable top end speed of 26 miles per hour. This is a great set up for beginnners to learn the basics with its great stability, smooth acceleration and easy handling. The Infinity 76 drives on an angled upwind edge with plenty of power and is a comfortable cruiser at moderate speeds. Downwind, the Infinity Slingshot drives smoothly and carries lots of lift and has been a leader in the foil revolution with their modular Hover series in its fourth generation. They have a full gamut of wings for surf, SUP, wing, windsurfing and kite foiling that are interchangeable on the Hover Glide. For 2020 Slingshot has added a few new wing set ups to their range but the Infininity Surf continues as one of the true maverick’s of multi-disciplined foil riding. The Infinity 76 has an amazing amount of lift and is ideal for light wind foiling or riding with less power in your kite. Often when kiting with a larger surf wing, too much kite power can cause the foil to get too much lift and speed, causing loss of control, so it’s important to keep the kite size down if you’re foiling in more more than 12-to-15 mile per hour winds. For lighter weight riders or more performance in heavier winds and more kite power, there is an Inifiity 65 available or check out the review of the new Apollo wing in this issue. This is well suited for learning to foil or advancing transitional and foil carving skills.
