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.
SIZES: 4/5/6/7/8/9/10/12 M
The 2017 WAVE SST features a Compact-C canopy profile and a condensed version of Slingshot?s popular shock-absorbing IRS bridle system. The combination of canopy geometry and bridle configuration results in a kite that flies deep in the window, in the sweet spot for surf-specific performance. Two main features that make the WAVE SST such an amazing surf kite are: How well it drifts downwind and how quickly it can pivot even when you?re depowered, sheeted out or moving toward the kite. These characteristics also make the WAVE an ideal kite for foiling. The WAVE SST is extremely robust, taking Slingshot?s bomber surf-tough standards a step farther, with a special Surf Grid panel layout that adds strength and durability to the canopy, and a condensed bridle setup. Trailing edge tension is now controlled with the addition of Teijin T2 Polyester ripstop canopy material, which decreases trailing edge flutter and increases durability. We reinforced the one-pump inflation valve?s connection to the bladder to help prevent blowouts caused by improper hose attachment/ detachment.
