THE 2020 NATIVE
Built for versatility and a friendly feel in all conditions, the Native is a new crossover board built around the fan-favorite Slingshot Recoil model of years past.
Inspired by one of Slingshot’s flagship models, the Native is an ALL NEW crossover board designed to dominate both the boat and the park. The subtle flex tips and an exaggerated elliptical concave deliver fun and floaty transitions from edge to edge. In the park it embraces round surfaces and helps riders lock in for longer presses, while offering more control and “feel”. If you were ever a fan of the Recoil model from past years, it’s time to bust out your checkbook and jump aboard the latest rendition!
Design by Alex Graydon x Slingshot Wake.

SUBTLE FLEX TIPS
With softer lines and transitions than Slingshot’s standard Slingshot flex tip, this smooth taper to thinner tips disperses the flex more throughout the entire board; 60% flex in the tips, 40% flex through the belly.
Singleshot Fusion Sidewall
Slingshot transferred the same technology found in high durometer urethane skateboard wheels into the rail of all their boards. The 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, Slingshot 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.
With .7mm’s of bulletproof protection between your board and the surfaces you’re sliding across, the park base has been hammered on by the most abusive park riders for years - Earning the ultimate seal of approval and certified “Ballistic”.
Imagine this like a reverse rocker running from edge to edge at the tip and tail of the board, allowing the tip and tail to wrap around round park features and “hold” for longer. Yep, your nose and tail presses on the pipe rail just got a whole lot sweeter, and when riding on the water makes for a fun and floaty transition from heel to toe.
CONTINUOUS ROCKER PROFILE
Faster board speed on the water, ride for longer with less arm fatigue, exciting, fast and fun feel.
Edge Enhancers (fins)
(4) .5 inch bolt on fins give riders the bite they need for holding an edge up the wake and added stability on landings down the endless liquid tabletops. Just don't get caught trying to nosepress these bad boys through the park.

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.
