Slingshot Sports announced the launch of the Wakefoiler, a foil wakeboard.
The watersports company unveiled its new addition to the wake lineup at the 2016 Surf Expo. This new breed of behind-the-boat toy offers riders an entirely new sensation and challenge on the water.
One of the best parts of the Wakefoiler is that you can ride it behind just about anything, from a personal watercraft to a pontoon, to a crusty old fishing boat.

The World Wakeboard Association (WWA) has announced it will change its name to World Wake Association.
The subtle modification aims to represent all wake sports better, and not just wakeboarding. The new World Wake Association designation will take effect for the 2017 season.
"Former board member of the WWA, Matt Hickman, suggested this name change a few years ago, but the timing did not seem right even though I always knew this would eventually take place," explained Shannon Starling, president of the WWA.
