2020 THE BISHOP WAKEBOARD
The Bishop is a perfect all-around park board for the rider who likes to go BIG off the kickers and still be able to easily lock into presses. If YKWTFGO, the Bishop is for YOU!
Designed exclusively for the cable, the Bishop board premiered in 2019 in just one size and was gone from stock faster than a fudge brownie on the bottom shelf of your refrigerator. For 2020, Slingshot expanded the size range and removed the belly channels (as per Blake’s request) to give it a looser feel on the water and free-er feel on the rails! Finished with a nostalgic throwback graphic and all the kids be like: YKWTFGO! Little do they know we rocked this same pattern on our polo shirts while they were still rocking diapers!
Why you’ll love the 2020 Bishop:
The Bishop is the happy-medium, one-board cable slayer. It goes big off kickers and handles hard landings while maintaining a loose and free feeling on rails and obstacles.

STANDARD FLEX TIPS
Slingshot’s signature flex tips were introduced in 2017 and are available on models such as the Windsor, Solo, Contrast, and Bishop Models. Designed to make nose and tail presses more exhilarating, flex tips are designed to move the flex point out from the belly of the board and more into the … tips … for a whole new feel on rails.
SLINGSHOT FUSION SIDEWALL
Slingshot transferred the same technology found in high durometer urethane skateboard wheels into the rail of all their boards. This innovative manufacturing process literally infuses the rail into the board cores in one single shot, producing unrivaled dampening and durability.
CARBON BEDROCK INSERTS
Light, flexible and super strong, these inserts are reinforced with carbon fiber before being inlaid into the board. Reduces overall board weight, increases pull strength and allows for a more consistent flex under foot.
ATOMIC WOOD CORE
Vertically laminated wood core construction is what gives Slingshot boards their famous flavor and flex.
Slightly slower board speed on the water, more controlled feel, ideal for locking into different sections of the rocker profile while pressing on obstacles.
With .7mm’s of bulletproof protection between your board and the surfaces you’re sliding across, this park base has been hammered on by the most abusive park riders for years - Earning the ultimate seal of approval and certified “Ballistic”.
STIFF BELLY - A thicker core between the feet adds rigidity and helps the board hold it’s shape under pressure. This is ideal for big kicker hits or boat riding as it delivers cleaner pop and helps the board land with more speed.
NARROW OUTLINE - A narrow outline delivers a much more playful feel on the water and faster transition from toe to heel. Great for aggressive carving from edge to edge and overall responsiveness.

GUMMY STRAPS WITH INTERCHANGEABLE STRAP COLORS
Finally, a simple and effective solution to a problem that has afflicted wakeboarding boots since the very beginning. Slingshot’s “Gummy Straps” are a revolutionary closure system that utilizes super strong, high-tension Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) to cinch your boots tight. No more loosening over time, no more Velcro, no more cumbersome closure systems: Gummy Straps stretch when you fasten them, then squeeze your boots tight as you ride. Gummy Straps are easily interchangeable and each boot comes with two sets of colors so you can customize your style.
K9 MOUNTING SYSTEM
Continued for 2020, Slingshot’s K9 mounting system provides a solid connection to your board, eliminates heel/toe lift and provides fully customizable mounting options so you can set your stance exactly the way you want it.
FORGED ALUMINUM MOUNTING RACK
Heavy Boots are a thing of the past. Slingshot’s forged aluminum mounting rack is incredibly strong and lightweight. This means a lighter overall setup. Lighter & stronger? You really can’t beat that.
DUAL ZONE CLOSURE SYSTEM
A laced Lower section combines with our Signature HHD system to secure the bottom half of the boot, while the gummy strap on top allows riders to customize the fit around their ankles. All shapes and sizes are welcome.
Slingshot’s HHD (Heel Hold Down System) integrates with the lower lacing zone, engulfing the heel with support from all angles as the lower zone is pulled tight, increasing comfort and providing a more secure fit.
Base plates are a thing of the past. Slingshot’s direct-connect soles reduce the footprint of the boot and allows the board to flex more efficiently underfoot. With a direct connection to the deck, the reaction time of the board is immediate when you engage on your toes or heels to set an edge. This increases rider feel and control and improves the overall connection to your board.
