2018 Slingshot Refraction Kiteboard - All-Terrain Wakestyle
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 versatile 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 during presses. The Refraction comes with wake fins for a more freestyle/wakestyle feel, but can easily be changed to standard fins for more grip and upwind drive.
Refraction user profile:
You don’t have to be on par with Sam’s unmistakable style to appreciate the Refraction, but it is best suited for intermediate to advanced riders who at least occasionally encounter kickers, sliders, rails or other features. The upgraded Durasurf base adds a ton of durability, but that comes with a little extra weight that you may not need. Also by far the best choice if you want a board that works as well in the cable parks as it does in the open water.
