Slingshot Space Pickle Kite Surfboard 2014
This unique shape has been gaining a reputation as a fun, dynamic wave catcher in our Wakesurf and SUP lines for the last couple years.
Comes with Board, Fins and Pads
Now we’ve finally managed to bring it to our true surf line where it was originally developed. Hand shaped by Tony Logosz, the 2014 Space Pickle offers the control and stability of a longboard with the agility and performance of a short-board. It features a variable tucked hard rail for added bite in the pocket and a double concave with an aggressive V spine through the tail for looser transition from edge to edge. However, the first thing you will notice about this shape is a large volume profile, which provides unmatched performance for super fun days, everyday.

WVX SURF CONSTRUCTION
WVX (BAMBOO VENEER + FLUID X) WVX construction is built with layers of bamboo wood, resin and weaved lightweight fiberglass combined with a strong EPS core. During each layering step vacuum bagging techniques are used to enhance the bonding strength. Proprietary to Slingshot, this construction controls the durability and flex of the board. The result is a proven lightweight, impact resistant board. A final layer of glass provides the highest fit and finish of any kite surfboard on the market. WVX construction features our Fluid X Vibration Dampening System for an unrivaled smooth ride. These lightweight boards are the next step in the evolution of kite surfboards that deliver the perfect balance between performance and durability with elegant styling.
FEATURING FLUID X - VIBRATION DAMPENING SYSTEM. Fluid X was born from the ski and snowboard industry. It made sense to look toward progressive snowsports technology to provide state of the art dampening control to reduce vibration and create a clean and smooth feel throughout all our high performance boards. Fluid X also provides an anti-torsion property that runs from tip to tail and it’s visco-elastic stringer improves the dynamic behavior of the core construction that allows more flex, more response and the smoothest feel unlike anything you’ve experienced on a kite surfboard. With Fluid X, we finally manage to give our boards a Polyester feel with the durability of an epoxy lay up.
