SLINGSHOT FOIL: Invading OBX

Slingshot recently had a bit of a foil party on the Outer Banks…

Last month we loaded up the boat with Slingshot’s wake and surf brand manager Jeff McKee and headed north from Charleston, SC to the Outer Banks of North Carolina for a first of its kind mission at Slinghshot. A surf, kite, foil, and boat trip all packed into one! We recruited pro surfers Ben Gravy and Brett Barley as well as Slingshot team members James Jenkins and Reed Brady for the ultimate “foil mixer”.

The plan was to ride foils as many different ways and places as possible and spread the love of flight all throughout OBX. Foil surfing behind the boat, paddling into waves, towing in, behind kites, and anything else we could come up with! We also happened to score some epic surf conditions during the week and the boy couldn’t resist a few “traditional” rides doing what they do best!
