The Dwarf Craft - Featuring the same high-end construction as Slingshot’s lineup of wakesurfers, the Dwarf Craft comes in two different lengths to appeal to two different styles of foiling. The 42” (106.6cm) is designed for skilled riders who want a short, playful and very agile board that will feel similar to a wakeskate and is an ideal size for traveling, while the 54” (137.1cm) is a more traditional all-around board that will appeal to a wide range of users and perform well in any condition.
The Dwarf Craft employs Slingshot’s rugged EPS core and fiberglass-wrapped construction and is inlaid with PVC stringers for added torsional strength and durability. The board is thinner, lighter and narrower than the Alien Air, making it a great choice for riders looking for a lower-profile and, subsequently, lower priced ride.
Design features include aggressively chined rails to create a separate edging surface when the board touches the water while edging on the foil, moderate front-end rocker to help prevent pearling and nose-diving, an adjustable strut mount that allows the foil to be moved forward and aft depending on rider preferences and skill level, foot strap inserts that can be setup in two-strap (surf style) or three-strap (race style)configurations and a full-length EVA deck pad and concave deck that functions similar to a skateboard in providing turning and edge control with very subtle movement.
