Slingshot Wakeboards: In The Spotlight

Slingshot Wakeboards: In The Spotlight

Innovative, enthralling and made to perfection are just a few ways to describe Slingshot wakeboards. Founded in 1999, brothers Jeff and Tony Logosz started Slingshot when they began making some of the most sought after kiteboarding gear in the business. Following such success in this field it was only natural for them to take a professional step into the world of wakeboarding.
Not content with the evolution of wakeboards so far, Slingshot took what they knew from other board sports, hit it up with technology and revolutionised wakeboarding forever. The designers disregarded the rigid boards found previously in wakeboarding and introduced full wood cores resulting in the flexible, hybrid boards we see everywhere today.

As well as being market leaders, Slingshot wakeboards are environmentally ethical too. Situated in the beautiful cascades of the Pacific Northwest, every single board is carefully hand crafted using local, sustainable wood. The Slingshot head office, warehouse and factory are right next to each other completely eliminating carbon emissions created by transportation.
Aside from the positive environmental impact of having the office, warehouse and factory so close by, Slingshot are able to control every aspect of production. So if a rider comes in and says they aren’t completely happy with their board, the designers and manufacturers can tweak, produce and test another version in a matter of days. This offers riders a unique service which other companies simply cannot provide. It’s obvious why we’re thrilled to be stocking Slingshot wakeboards here at Surfdome.
