Slingshot Refraction Pro 2017 Slingshot wood core construction Slingshot wood core construction
Every Slingshot kiteboard is hand built in the United States, in a small factory just down the road from company headquarters in Hood River. Boards are made from vertically laminated wood cores. This process utilizes the collective strength of the wood’s end grain and creates boards with unrivaled pop, rebound and flex characteristics.
