Pair prodigy-level athleticism with mad-scientist designers and exciting things are bound to happen. That’s certainly the case with Slingshot, who have a long history of teaming up with young talent to push the envelope in innovation and redefine the limits of the sports in which they create gear. With the addition of Jeffrey and Finn Spencer as their newest team riders, Slingshot will carry on that tradition in their hydrofoil program, which has built a solid reputation as one of the most innovative and progressive in the industry.
At 15 and 17 years old, the Maui-based brothers have made waves as young phenoms in the competitive SUP surfing world are now on the front lines of progression in SUP and surf foiling and downwind foil racing. As the creative genius behind Slingshot’s foil program, Tony Logosz knows having athletes like Jeffrey and Finn as part of the team is an essential part of progression and product innovation.
“Having these guys out there competing and pushing the sport on Slingshot foils is a big deal,” says Tony, “but that’s only part of the benefit. We also get inside development, testing and feedback on custom foils and designs we want to work on. Having their fine-tuned understanding of how foils feel and perform is invaluable to the innovation process.”
