2019 Slingshot Refraction Kiteboard
Sam Light says, “shred the gnar, brah.” Well, I cannot quote him directly on that, but it is pretty close. If he can be the King of the Air, the Triple-S winner, and shred cable parks with this board, Lord knows you can as well. Multipurpose as ever, the Refraction takes the cake for those looking to ride aggressively and hit some kickers in the meantime. Riding boots? No problem. Slingshot’s carbon bedrock inserts will ensure that you’ll never have to worry about the structural integrity of the board. The stiffness on this board allow for some monster pop and airs to be thrown with the most minimal of effort.
What Slingshot has to say about the Refraction
Stand out at the beach or park with a crossover wake and kite board. Sam Light’s pro model board is as versatile as he is: King of the Air, Triple-S, Hailing Island, Hood River Slider Jam,local Sandbar, or cable parks - you too can be the Light.
With the Refraction’s bomber Ballistic Base, you can shred to your heart’s content- kite, cable or wake- without the anxiety of destroying your board. fear no feature, sandbar, rocks or reef.
The Refraction is a solid all-around board designed to shred every condition on the planet, and take a major beating in the process. With a medium rocker profile, it can hold its own in chop, swell and rough conditions, as well as flat water freestyle. The rocker and tip/tail shape yield great load and pop, big airs and cushy landings, while the inverted tip and tail profile prevents catching an edge on kickers and sliders.
