The Windowmaker is the most advanced board in our lineup. Its high-end carbon composite construction isn’t just for looks- it creates a fast and crazy light ride with a sharp, connected feel to the water unlike any other twin tip we make. Classified as an all-around board with moderate rocker, its shape favors all levels of freeriding. The Widowmaker features a progressive three-stage rocker and a distinctive bottom profile with aggressive NACA channeling at the tip and tail designed propel water across the board. These technical features add up to a fast, locked-in board with great upwind tracking, solid pop and a crazy-light feel. On the inside, the board features a high-tech Paulownia/Korroyd core. Paulownia is a wood known for its strong, springy characteristic, while Korroyd is a thermally-welded miniature honeycomb material that provides superior strength at a fraction of the weight of wood. On the outside is a full carbon wrap with carbon Vectran weave in critical stress areas that gives the Widowmaker its super stiff flex and light overall weight.

Carbon Bedrock Inserts: New for 2017, Slingshot is employing a carbon-reinforced Bedrock Insert mounting system, which reduces board weight while improving hold strength and overall flex characteristics. They use the industry-standard M6 hardware and are reinforced with light-weight, high-strength carbon fiber.
NACA channels: Precision NACA Tech channels allow Slingshot to fine-tune each board in its lineup for specific performance characteristics. Channels improve water flow and board speed, grip and pop, edging and general performance and feel.
