Slingshot 2021 Native Wakeboard
Subtle Flex Tips
With softer lines and transitions than Slingshot's standard Flex Tip, this smooth taper to thinner tips disperses the flex throughout the entire board; 60% flex in the tips, 40% flex through the belly.
Imagine this like a reverse rocker running from edge to edge at the tip and tail of the board, allowing the tip and tail to wrap around round park features and hold for longer. Yep, your nose and tail presses on the pipe rail just got a whole lot sweeter. When riding on the water, this concave makes for a fun and floaty transition from heel to toe.
Singleshot Fusion Sidewalls
Slingshot transferred the same technology found in high-durometer urethane skateboard wheels into the rail of all their boards. Their innovative manufacturing process literally infuses the rail into the board cores in one single shot, producing unrivaled dampening and durability.
With 0.7 mms of bulletproof protection between your board and the surfaces you're sliding across, Slingshot's park base has been hammered on by the most abusive park riders for years, earning the ultimate seal of approval and certified "Ballistic."
Atomic Wood Core
Vertically-laminated wood core construction is what gives Slingshot boards their famous flavor and flex.
Carbon Bedrock Inserts
Light, flexible and super strong, Slingshot inserts are reinforced with carbon fiber before being inlaid into the board, reducing overall board weight, increasing pull strength, and allowing for a more consistent flex underfoot.
Continuous Rocker Profile
Faster board speed on the water, ride for longer with less arm fatigue, exciting, fast and fun feel.
Bolt-on fins give riders the bite they need for holding an edge up the wake and added stability on landings down the endless liquid tabletops. Just don't get caught trying to nosepress these bad boys through the park.
Inspired by one of Slingshot's flagship models, the Native is a new age crossover board to dominate both behind the boat and at the park. The subtle flex tips feature an exaggerated elliptical concave that deliver fun and floaty transitions from edge to edge. In the park it embraces round surfaces and helps riders lock in for longer presses, while offering more control and feel. If you were ever a fan of the legacy Recoil and Response models from Slingshot, the Native is what happens when you put those two in a blender and add a double shot of new age influence from team riders like Alex Graydon.
