The GKA is excited to announce the addition of Slingshot Sports as the latest brand to join the Association as a member, to help work together as an industry to grow the sport of kiteboarding and its participation as safely and positively as possible. Let’s hear more from them here:
When was Slingshot founded and by who?
Slingshot was founded in 1999 in the windsports mecca of the Columbia River Gorge and you can still still find the head-quarters of the company in Hood River, Oregon. Brothers Jeff and Tony Logosz grew the brand from the ground up and remain at the helm today; Jeff as the CEO and Tony as the chief designer. Over the years, Slingshot has built and maintained a reputation for constantly pushing the envelope, both in the innovative products it produces and the athletes who continually push and redefine the sport.
