The Vision is crafted by Slingshot especially for the intermediate to expert rider who demands massive pop and control in any condition and any style of riding. It is a board that excels when used with the RPM kite, but it can be used with a wide range of other kites as well. It is a board developed to deliver both competitive and recreational performance in real world conditions.

The new 2014 Slingshot Vision is fine tuned to deliver a balanced ride for all ability levels and style. It can accommodate intermediate riders that want to progress and advanced riders that perform technical tricks on a daily basis. The Vision’s flex pattern is optimized to deliver impressive pop, as well as very soft landings and make the ride smooth in demanding conditions like chop.

The board’s outline, combined with the chin rails, assures excellent early palning and upwind abilities and minimizes spray to the face. A friendly, continuous rocker provides improved edging control and maneuverability, as well as a superior speed. An elliptical concave bottom design is used to improve stability and maximize edge to edge response. Special NACA Duct channels act like a vacuum from the middle of the board to the tip to direct water in an accelerated manner to improve speed and grip and reduce drag. Another advantage of these channels is that they provide cleaner takeoffs, smoother landings, better response and added stability.

The Slingshot Vision is built using an Atomic 100% wood core that ensures optimal flex and durability, Resin X layers and Fusion sidewalls. It is equipped with the Fastrack mounting system that offers limitless micro adjustment stance options and a superior rider to board connection.

It's definitely a freestyle character! It has extra rocker, so it's easy to control and speeds upwind. You also get plenty of pop and can take off like a rocket. However, i found that landings ca be a little harsh, especially when jumping hig...more
