slingshot skimboard?

Postby mike dubs » Sun Nov 29, 2009 4:35 pm

Saw a picture somewhere of a Slingshot skimboard, has anyone got any info? is it going to be produced?
shymac got any inside info?

P.S. Been riding a Slingshot Celaritas 5'8'' (which is great) strapless last 5 sessions and think I'm hooked! extreme but good new learning curve. Blunt hasn't left the car since , think my Wainman rabbits are even better riding a strapless board.

Cheers
Mike

No proper info yet but it will come in 2 sizes and there will be a core waKeSurfeR to be added to crossover line up. These skimmies will be US manufactured from our factory that builds the rest of the kite and wake board line up. Should be pretty fun and should have them for demo at the LV EXPO. Out by spring of 2010. :thumb:
