What we like:
The Vision is the offspring of a Misfit and Asylum combo. This board is an amazing all around freeride, wakestyle, and generally do everything kiteboard. Slingshot have figured out the right blend of decent rocker, medium flex and just enough bottom shape to make a very easy to ride board. It is not just for your everyday cruisers either. Almost every Slingshot team member that has been riding boots and loving the Asylum has switched over to the Vision for 2014.
Despite what a lot of kiteboarders think, flat and flexy creates a host of problems that you will grow out of once you can ride upwind. A stiffer board with more rocker is a lot more fun to ride and much easier on your knees and that’s what makes the Vision so good.
What we don't like:
The Bolt-On 5.0 straps are an excellent choice if you are kiteboarding in booties. We did find that when you have bare feet your heel can slide around. We also wish that they made a 136cm and a 142cm board so that we could share the love with everyone.
Why you want the 2014 Slingshot Vision:
This is one of the best boards that we have tested this year. If one of the sizes is close to your normal board size, do yourself a favor and get the Vision. You will be a better kiteboarder by the end of your first session.
