The inventor of the Slingwing says that the new product by Slingshot was not designed to replace windsurfing or kitesurfing.

The origins of wing surfing date back to the mid-1980s, when Tom Magruder invented the Wind Weapon and rode it in the Columbia River Gorge.

More recently, snow windsurfers used portable sails to glide across frozen lakes.
