Ghost Whisper Carbon 101
“The perfect balance between stability and high-speed performance,” is how Slingshot team rider Fred Hope describes the GW101. Fred has access to just about any foil he wants, and this is the one he chooses more than any other. A medium aspect wingset makes this foil faster than the GW91 and more stable than the GW111, while a 101cm mast gives you more room to lean and carve upwind without breaking the surface.
This is the best choice for experienced riders who want an aggressive all-around foil and are well beyond the learning curve of twitchy high-performance carbon foils.

When we released the all-carbon 2017 Ghost Whisper, we heard from experienced riders around the world that this, finally, was the foil they had been waiting for. Not only does it have the stiff, light and strong characteristics of high-end carbon construction, but the shape and feel are spot on. It’s fast, agile and aggressive, and unlike many “high-performance” foils, it’s also user-friendly for riders who aren’t lucky enough to kite more days of the year than they work.
