As I’m sitting in the San Diego airport at 6:30am waiting for my flight to Pheonix to go to Freescale Electronics for work, I checked the usual boardsports deal sites, and came across this gem.
Right now on www.BoardersBestBuy.com there is a killer deal, and I had to post it real quick.
So if any of you guys see this this morning, get on it and buy this board!
It’s a Slingshot Recoil 138 board, with Driver bindings package, for $299.99 + $48.00 shipping.
MSRP on this package is $799.
Here’s the description:
Slingshot Recoil 138 –
Step down side wall construction with a hybrid PVC core, vertical grain wood, and advance composites create long lasting rapid flex control, that allows the board to rebound in and out of turns, off the wake, and butter for softer landings. It’s best known for its superior performance and eye opening experience. Slingshot Wakeboards are 25 years in the making. Years of R&D in our kiteboards, and over a year of intense wakeboard testing result in the development of these unique hybrid cores with advanced composite technology. Our new technology eliminates traditional performance trade offs like swing weight and a locked out feel of the old PU technology of years past.
Slingshot Driver Boot –
The Driver boots were developed to put riders in a more natural athletic position and to take wakeboarding to another level. For our design team it meant finding the starting place for all the input. Like every sport this starting place puts your weight on the balls of your feet. From that point you initiate heel pressure or toe pressure. As simple and as natural as it sounds wakeboarding has drifted away from this concept. The reason for the divergence is the heel hold, the use of compromising materials and inferior design. The reality is nothing’s going to work if your heel isn’t locked down. Binding developers of the past thought they had solved this problem and the problem of squirting out of the toes by building toe ramps. This in effect lowered your heel below the ball of your foot resulting in the most non athletic and unnatural position imaginable. Don’t take our word for it; try surfing, skating or snowboarding in this position. It’s very difficult, uncomfortable and unnatural. Slingshot shares the same functional holy grail of heel hold but the key is to put the rider into a more athletic and aggressive riding position. The ultimate solution was the closed toe boot. The new Driver boots deliver ease of entry, comfort, balance and heel hold.
Get on it!!!
