Well, it's officially spring now in my part of the world. Good timing. Get on with it Slingshot!

Perfect....where do you live and ride? Might have to come to your neck of the woods this winter.

At $2k, those Phantasm foil pricing is premium indeed! Making the Axis / Lift / Moses setups look like a good value.

Seems King of Watersports jumped the gun, they aren’t listed anymore and the above link doesn’t work anymore.
I did manage to have a read about them before the info got removed and they have a special mast construction, carbon beams rather than wood or foam internals. If you can believe the marketing write up it is meant to be super stiff.

Yep....there's almost always someone who can't hold it in and goes against the brands wishes for release dates.

Current release date is the end of September and first up will be the kite foil.

The product looks very impressive and well thought out. It's an immense product line and can't wait to get on the new foils.

Marketed as a 633? A bit cheeky following the great success of the Moses onda 633?

Slingshot designed the 633 and not Moses (if I'm not mistaken)
