About Slingshot

SLINGSHOT SPORTS

Since 1981, brothers Jeff and Tony Logosz have dedicated themselves to the performance and design of quality water sports equipment.  Years of hard work and innovation, which has spawned from their ability to think in original ways, is what fuels them today.  In 1999, after numerous innovations in windsurfing, wakeboarding, and other major water sports, both set forth to found Slingshot.  Since then Slingshot has grown to become a leading global brand that caters to top kiteboarders and wakeboarders around the world.

Slingshot today: Achieving this level of success commits us to our core beliefs.  People who ride Slingshot will always come first.  Our commitment to quality, innovative design, riding, and testing has been a driving force for over a decade.  Throughout these years, we have been awarded four U.S. patents that make kiteboarding more convenient and safer.  We also proudly license patents from other great innovators of our sport to help establish high levels of quality and set industry standards.  This contributes to the prosperity and growth of kiteboarding and wakeboarding.

The passion within Slingshot is seen on the water by the world’s top athletes riding and pushing the limits of our equipment every day.  Our dedication to quality and performance has empowered our riders to literally change the kiteboarding and wakeboarding worlds.  “Since childhood, it is has been in our DNA to invent and deliver equipment specific to the sports we love.” Tony says, as he refers to these inventions as ART.

THE SLINGSHOT TEAM

Our customers: We believe our legacy is built on our commitment to excellence.  Nothing is more important than building that with our customers.  This is why owning any Slingshot product is like being a part of the family.  We may not always be perfect, but we always make right by the customer.  Call us anytime; WE want to talk to YOU.

Our athletes: Tony goes on to say, “while growing up we had great mentors who supported our riding, and our education in developing products and composites.  Thank you, Demetrije Milovich, and others who have helped develop our business sense.  As our own athletic abilities wane with age, our passion to bring each sport to life grows stronger”.  At Slingshot we believe in giving back.  We love finding raw, unbelievably talented athletes and supporting their dreams.  The results have been incredible, and we have witnessed levels of riding we thought not possible, all within the true essence of freeriding in mind.

On the kite side, names like Bertrand Fleury, Jeff Tobias, Martin Vari, Julien Sudrat, and Mark Doyle have all pushed the sport to new levels.  Today, riders like Ruben Lenten compliment our team by literally reaching new heights with such power, we’re left in awe.  Youri Zoon, now on the scene, is also blowing minds.

On the wake team, innovation and style are being defined by Global Team Rider’s Jeff House, Jeff McKee, Mikey Ennen, Nick Valliere, Robby Jacques, Shredtown (Andrew Adams, Chris Abadie and Davis Griffin), and female rider Corrie Dyer.  Expect Slingshot to continually look for the next personality to represent our passion to push our sports and freeriding to insane levels.

Our employees; you have to want to work at Slingshot.  As fun as it may seem, it’s not just a job, and things extremely intense because we move lightning fast around here.  We could not succeed without the creativity, drive, and commitment of all who work within the Slingshot family.
