Slingshot, the kite and wakeboard company, have been slowly
getting in the SUP market and this time, we think it's about to
take off like a rocket! Slingshot is using their great experience
in board making to bring us a touring board (amongst others)
that look fun and high quality.
"Three years in development, the Nitro is built for performance touring. This board delivers maximum glide, stability and speed for fitness paddling, recreational racing, or flatwater touring. The Nitro’s displacement bow cuts through the water providing a smooth ride, combined with an innovative double concave planning hull that flows into a slight V in the tail. This shape provides stability, control and helps maintain an efficient stroke.
Based on Slingshot’s Future Response Technology the Nitro is built with Carbon Epoxy Wood Veneer Sandwich construction. (CWVS). This proprietary construction controls the durability, flex and overall strength of the board without adding extra weight. The result is a proven, lightweight, impact resistant board "
