Just gotta tell you dudes new Slingshot SX141 and me Amp 11.9 late monday afternoon ... "Whooaa there leslie" ...... Littlehampton and 16 knots ... what a session. This board rips, .... have just changed from Jarvis 157 (excellent board) to this little baby and i must admit had a few reservations ? !! This board inspires so much confidence, its so light and you can spin it on a dime. I,ve never ridden toe-side so much and popped so many 180,s in one session. "This board just begs to be popped n' slashed all over the place" !!! Its got a very wakey/skatey feel to it but is butter smooth, the only problem i had was burying the nose a little in the 1st 20 mins i guess just getting used to the shorter length ? jump wise pop is mad and reckon me is gonna scare meself stupid for sure !!
When we started wind was good 16-17 knots but eventually died to betweeb 8-12 knots by the end of the evening. But heres a scenario ......... i have always found me 157 to be good for light wind lets say 10-12 knots n' im now 12 stone 7 lbs. After 3 and half hours on the water with the wind dropping me mates on a borrowed 157 and 11.8 Airblast on 30m lines struggling for power with the water flattening off and i'm absolutely ripping past him on the 141 like he was standing still ..!!!! I was the last one off the water with the wind measured on the beach at 8-12 knots max ... absolutley flying !
What a board !!!!!!!!!!!!!
You can flatten this baby off and @ 40cm wide it goes like stink but still has the ability im sure to hold more wind than ive ever held. ive yet to find its max but i'll keep you posted !! Confidence wise i think this board will take me to the next level and seems to be the perfect combo with the Amp.
Id recommend this board if you get chance try one !!!
I won,t be using the 157 now so that will be going up 4 sale when i gets back off me hols ....
"Aint buzzed like that 4 a while ... had to get it off me chest"
