2023 NATIVE SLINGSHOT WAKEBOARD
CROSSOVER / ALL TERRAIN / MULTI-PURPOSE
The Native is a true crossover king that has proven to be a team favorite for both cable-exclusive and boat-exclusive riders. It’s fast and free on the water, and features a medium flex pattern that’s rigid enough for explosive pop on the boat without sacrificing its playfulness in the park.
The Native has proven to be a team favorite for both cable-exclusive and boat-exclusive riders since its debut in 2020. This true crossover king is a reincarnation of two legacy models from years past—the Recoil and Response—with upgrades like the Elliptical Concave and subtle Flex Tips to meet the needs of the new-age rider. It’s fast and free on the water and features a medium flex pattern that’s rigid enough for explosive pop on the boat without sacrificing its playfulness in the park. This deck is undoubtedly your one-stop shop for every type of riding—built for the rider that can’t be bound to just one discipline.
WHY WE MADE IT
We created the Native out of popular demand for a simplified crossover model that pays homage to Slingshot’s flagship models: the Recoil and Response. The Native is a perfect blend of both – with upgrades to meet the demands of todays riders.
WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT
- The Native is the result of nearly 15 years of rider input – it’s everything they’ve loved and nothing else.
- A guaranteed good time regardless of where your riding takes you.
ATOMIC WOOD CORE
Vertically laminated wood core construction is what gives Slingshot boards their signature flex performance. It’s lightweight and durable, delivering superior pop, rebound, and that overall magical feeling in the park.
SINGLE-SHOT FUSION SIDEWALLS
Our innovative manufacturing process produces unrivaled dampening and durability by infusing the rail into the core of the board with a single shot, eliminating the need for fasteners or staples.
CARBON BEDROCK INSERTS
Light, flexible, and super strong, our Carbon Bedrock Inserts reduce overall board weight, increase pull strength and allow for a more consistent flex under foot.
With .7mm’s of bulletproof protection between your board and the surfaces you’re sliding across, this base layer is ready for battle. Put to the test daily by some of the most daring park riders in the game.
CONTINUOUS ROCKER PROFILE
This continuous curve equates to faster board speed on the water, allowing you to ride for longer periods of time with less arm fatigue and delivering an exciting, fast, and fun feel.
SIGNATURE FLEX TIPS
Designed to make nose and tail presses more exhilarating, Flex Tips move the flex point out from the belly of the board and more into the tips for a whole new feel on rails.
This unique curvature in the tips and tails creates more excitement when flowing from rail-to-rail on the water, and also helps riders hold on to nose and tail presses as the tips literally wrap around rounded sliding surfaces.
