SLINGSHOT TWIN TIPS – 2017 VISION & 2017 GLIDE

Glide 2017 featured2

Carlos Mario going massive on the 2017 Vision!

With a rocker profile in between the Asylum and the Misfit, the Vision is Slingshots signature freestyle-freeride crossover board designed for riders who want one board they can ride aggressively in all conditions. The Vision’s distinct NACA tech laser-cut channeling on the tip and tail yield increased board speed and help lock in the board for added grip, load and pop. From chop, swell and rough open water to glassy slicks and high-flying freestyle, the Vision is a one-board-quiver that won’t hold you back as you take your riding to the next level.

You’ll love the Vision if you’re an intermediate to advanced rider who wants a solid all-around board you can ride aggressively in a variety of conditions, from big boosting to cruising to flatwater freestyle.

 

Freestyle friendly, ride while others watch and wait.

The Glide is our dedicated light-wind board designed to get you out and riding, and having a blast doing it, while others sit on the beach waiting for the wind to come up. Staying true to the expression “Throw it don’t mow it,” the Glide’s long, slender outline, block rail profile and mild rocker combine for a feel closer to a standard twin-tip than the barn door that many wider light wind boards resemble. Offered in 149cm and 159cm lengths, the Glide’s extra surface area will, as the name suggests, get you up and gliding across the water with significantly less wind than a standard twin tip.

You’ll love the Glide if you frequent light-wind locations where you need a large-format board to get you out and riding and want to maintain the fun of a twin tip rather than switching to a surfboard
