NATIVE WAKEBOARD DETAIL
MORE ABOUT THE NATIVE BOARD
Inspired by one of Slingshot’s flagship models, the Native is an ALL NEW crossover board designed to dominate both the boat and the park. The subtle flex tips and an exaggerated elliptical concave 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 Recoil model from past years, it’s time to bust out your checkbook and jump aboard the latest rendition!

Not just a board graphic, it’s a work of art.
SUBTLE FLEX TIPS
With softer lines and transitions than Slingshot’s standard Slingshot flex tip, this smooth taper to thinner tips disperses the flex more throughout the entire board; 60 % flex in the tips, 40 % flex through the belly.
SINGLESHOT FUSION SIDEWALL
We’ve transferred the same technology found in high durometer urethane skateboard wheels into the rail of all our boards. Our innovative manufacturing process literally infuses the rail into the board cores in one single shot, producing unrivaled dampening and durability.
CARBON BEDROCK INSERTS
Light, flexible and super strong, our inserts are reinforced with carbon fiber before being inlaid into the board. Reduces overall board weight, increases pull strength and allows for a more consistent flex under foot.
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, and when riding on the water makes for a fun and floaty transition from heel to toe.
With .7mm’s of bulletproof protection between your board and the surfaces you’re sliding across, our park base has been hammered on by the most abusive park riders for years – Earning the ultimate seal of approval and certified “Ballistic”.
EDGE ENHANCERS (fins)
(4) .5 inch 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.
CONTINUOUS ROCKER PROFILE
Faster board speed on the water, ride for longer with less arm fatigue, exciting, fast and fun feel.
