The more sports you get into, the more gear you need. And gear can get pretty expensive. With many watersports like standup paddling, surfing and windsurfing there is a lot of crossover but in most cases you'll need a different set of gear for each sport. A newer watersport to hit the scene in recent years has been wingsurfing, which is a lot like windsurfing but with an inflatable wing that is held in your hands instead of the sail that's attached to your board. Now, the crew over at Slingshot has just come out with a new attachment that will allow you to transform your SUP into a Wingsurf board!
Slingshot's SUP Winder Fin is the first of its kind stick on keel. It installs in minutes transforming your SUP board into an efficient wingsurfing board and eliminates the need for a Wingsurf-specific board.

With the SUP WINDer installed, a wing in your hands, and a little technique, you can stay upwind and return home to the same place you launched from. Great for teaching first time wingsurfers and exploring your local waterways. Using wind power you will propel yourself across the water at far higher speeds, while expending less energy than traditional paddling. If you do decide to use your board for standard paddling the keel is easily removable, while the streamlines stick-on fin-box remains attached the bottom of your board. Jump into the sport of wingsurfing now, using the SUP board you already own!
Check out a demo of how it attaches to your paddle board in the video below!
