2019 Slingshot SST - Surf Performance
The SST is fine-tuned to fly deeper in the window than most kites. This, combined with the kite’s shape and bridle setup, yields hero-level downwind drift and steering response even when tension on the lines is minimal. It’s the park-and-ride performance that you dream about. It pulls you into position, drifts with you like a shadow, then re-engages at the flick of a wrist. To better hold up to the surf, the SST features reinforced surf-tough canopy paneling designed to take a beating if it goes through the wash and a condensed version of our IRS bungee that cannot get wrapped around the wingtips.
SST rider profile:
If you’d rather pee in your winter wetsuit than cut short a good surf session, the SST is your kite. Legendary Slingshot designer, longtime surfer and foiling fanatic, Tony Logosz, designed the SST as his ultimate kite, and he has flown it exclusively since it launched three years ago. For foilers and dedicated wave riders who favor downwind drift and feather-light control above all else, it’s a no-brainer. For cross-over riders, the SST is a great choice if you frequently use a directional (surf board), enjoy downwinders or want a playful kite you can whip around without getting yanked off the water.

2019 Slingshot Wave SST Kiteboarding Kite - At A GlanceThe SST has become a shop favorite, whether it be a surf or foil session. The kite has so many great attributes, whether it be amazing drift or the way it just parks itself in the sky waiting for bar imput. The standout for me in this kite is just how perfectly balanced it flies. With the kite fully depowered, you can still turn this kite on a dime. When riding in overpowered conditions, the SST will stand its ground, and allow the rider to push his or her limits. This has become one of my favorite wave kites for this year. Check out our Wave Specific Kite Collection and Freeride Kite Collection for similar style kites. If you are looking for a wakestyle kite check out our Freestyle Kite Collection or our Lightwind Kite Collection for those looking to kite in lighter winds. - Aaron
