You’ve heard the hype — “it’s so much fun”, “it’s just like flying”, “it’s like nothing you’ve ever experienced before!” Foilboarding is all the rage, but if you don’t know how, it can be a little intimidating. Last year, Slingshot launched Flight School, a graduated mast system to ease the learning curve, but now thanks to Slingshot’s new Foil Academy, they’ve made it even easier by providing a free, learn at your own pace, online course.

Slingshot just launched kiteboarding’s first online course dedicated to user-friendly foiling progression. It’s called Foil Academy and it’s completely free! Foil Academy is a step-by-step course designed to teach you to kite foil. Slingshot’s industry-leading riders and designers cover everything from basic foil behavior, design and hydrodynamics to advanced transitions and big-air maneuvers. As you follow along with the course, you’ll learn valuable skills, tips and tricks that you can apply directly to your in-water progression. This class guarantees you’ll be able to learn to foil faster, safer and with more enjoyment than another method available today.
