Slingshot V1 Impact XR Kite Surfboard

Our new Impact kite surfboard is a full-power, pedal-to-the-metal board, built to shred a clean wall of swell to pieces. Thanks to its narrower pulled-in outline and knife squash tail, the Impact is right at home when the waves get big and powerful. Thanks to the Impact's fast planing hull the board rockets upwind on rail getting you back to the top of the peak faster. Then take one step back with your back foot and the board is ready to dissect. The Impact has tons of hold and drive off the bottom, which helps set up and allows for radical hard craving turns off the top. If you're looking for a high-confidence board for charging when the waves get juicy, look no further than the Impact! Original designs of the 2023 surfboard line were created by Al Emery in close collaboration with World-renowned wave rider, Ben Wilson.


  • NEW MODERN SQUASH TAILThe two slightly rounded edges act as a pair of release points for the water flowing off the back of the Impact that allows for the quickest and sharpest turns in true surf conditions.
  • NEW THRUSTER FIN CONFIGURATION - This three-fin setup is stable, maneuverable and versatile. It holds solidly in powered up action and on steep, critical sections of waves.
  • XR CONSTRUCTION - Premium features such as bamboo in the belly and carbon stringers, our XR Construction produces a more lively, lightweight, high-performance kite surfboard.
  • UNI-DIRECTIONAL CARBON STRINGER - Lengthwise carbon stringers on both the top and bottom provide strength and stiffness.
  • 3K CARBON RAIL SAVERS - Carbon Fiber rail patches along the tail help prevent cracking, heel dents and damage from hard landings and deep input.
  • FCS II REACTOR FINS - No tool required—just click in and click out. They're quick, easy, convenient and secure.

Package Includes: Impact XR V1 board, FCSII Reactor Tri-Fin set up

Slingshot Impact XR V1 - At a Glance

The Impact is a board designed for those that charge solid waves that have enough face to carve big sweeping turners. Ben Wilson wanted this board for the days when the swell is pumping, where the board needed to feel solid underfoot. Riding this board in smaller swell, the board can fleet little sluggish and not super responsive underfoot. The pulled in nose on the Impact makes this board less susceptible to getting hung up when the waves are steep and potentially barreling. I recommend this board to anyone who may be traveling to a location that has pumping swell for kiting or if you live near a beach that consistently gets big waves.
