The American company Slingshot was created by the two brothers Tony and Jeff Logos, but Tony was the initiator of the creation of the company. Since 1981, the brothers started windsurfing and were firmly confident that kiteboarding will develop rapidly and will be able to conquer many athletes who prefer an active sport. The Logos brothers wanted to convey to athletes all the benefits that kiting has, so from the very beginning their company was kiteboarding.
Officially, the Slingshot company was registered in 1999, however, until that time, Tony Logos was already engaged in the development of boards, so he was able to transfer his achievements to the kiteboarding industry. The Slingshot company was one of the first to start producing special equipment for windsurfing and kiteboarding. The Logos brothers believe that kites are able to charge an athlete with incredible energy.
Today, the company has its Slingshot plant, which is located in the USA, state of Origone, the city of Hood River. The company's activity is to manufacture high-quality equipment for extreme water sports such as kitesurfing, windsurfing and wakeboarding. The company's success can be explained by the presence of their main strategy - to focus on their customers and make every effort to create the perfect kiteboarding gear. If the manufactured products for any reason did not meet the required level of quality, its creators did their best to eliminate the indicated remarks. This policy is guided by the company to this day. Any employee of the company can get in touch with his client, listen to him and answer all your questions. Such openness only once again confirms the fact that the company's activities are mainly aimed at providing high-quality, innovative and comfortable products to riders.
Slingshot can be called a pioneer in the field of kiteboarding. Today, many competing firms in the production of their wakes are using the patented development of the company Slingshot. Nevertheless, the founders of Slingshot are not going to stop at the achieved result, they are constantly looking for new technologies to improve their products.
From the very beginning of its activities, Slingshot was engaged exclusively in kiteboarding, therefore the kiteboarding industry is largely obliged to the innovations of this company. Experimental method and the desire to create the most functional, practical and comfortable equipment for an athlete, the company Slingshot took the leading position in the production of kites around the world. The appearance of the kites also changed through experimental innovations. For example, a new element was added to the design of the kite - an image in the form of a flame.
Slingshot created its first kite, the Slingshot "Stealth". After testing a kite and appreciating all its qualities, the company was not afraid to admit the mistakes made and in fact the failure of its kite. However, this only once again pushed the company to focus on the quality of its products. The failure of Stealth was almost the only failure of the company, since from that time until today, Slingshot began testing all the prototypes of its products at every stage of production. If the product quality did not correspond to the desired, the product was sent for revision and improvement. Slingshot is ready to provide its customers with only the perfect product, so the pursuit of quality has become the company's credit.
