Slingshot Description
With a lighter, more flexible layup and a mild rocker profile, the Crisis is a predictable and approachable board that inspires confidence for riders who need it most. As you progress, a vertically laminated wood core gives the board a lively, springy feel that makes it fun for riders of all abilities. When you don’t need the technical features of our more advanced boards, the Crisis will keep you satisfied for seasons to come.

Features:
•Dependable, user-friendly performance
•Light weight, soft flex
•Mild rocker great for cruising and entry-level riding
•A sure bet for beginners
•Wood core provides lively feel and durability

Rider Profile:
The Crisis is an excellent choice for beginners, kite schools and mellow riders who don’t need the high-performance technical features of a more advanced board. While not a “beginner-specific” board, the soft, forgiving feel is of most benefit to a more mellow level of riding.

Crisis base:
The Crisis features a .2mm Dura-Light base. This hardened base material is about half the weight of our traditional base layup. For reference, other 2017 Slingshot base thicknesses are as follows: Refraction (Sam Light pro)- .7mm Dura-Glide base; Vision- .2mm Dura-light base; Misfit- .2mm Dura-lite base; Karolina Pro- .2mm Dura-lite base.

Carbon Bedrock inserts:
One of many Slingshot innovations, our carbon-reinforced inserts have proven to be the lightest, strongest and most flexible we’ve seen yet. These inserts reduce overall board weight, increase pull strength and allow for a more consistent flex underfoot.

Construction:
Slingshot twin tips are handcrafted out of all wood cores. We use sustainably grown Paulownia, which gives the lively, springy character that Slingshot boards are famous for. Our vertically laminated construction harnesses the collect strength of the wood’s grain and provides strength, durability and consistent flex over the life of the board. As an added layer of protection, we finish every board with a full urethane rail to protect from inevitable mishaps and impacts with hard objects. We’ve added vibrant urethane colors give the visual pop distinct to Slingshot.
