2022 Slingshot – Coalition | Wakeboard Review

By  •  March 10, 2022

The board responsible for ushering a new style of wakeboarding into the current age is back for 2022 in its original black and white color scheme. If you’re not familiar with the Coalition from Slingshot, this board rides like no other, just look at it. Its loose playful feel can be forgiving edge to edge but difficult to master. It can get a bit loose on landings but also helps teach you how to properly land your tricks properly. Chined rails on the bottom of the board are responsible for this unique ride. This board also comes with Slingshot’s Single Shot Fusion Sidewalls as well as a .7mm Ballistic Base that we found to perform very well on Unit and homemade features alike. Lastly but most importantly to some, a fifth binding insert toward the center of the board has been added for the maximum knee banging skinny stance option. If the Coalition can stand up to WMJ’s and Quinn Silvernale’s consistent abuse both at the cable or in the streets, we are sure it will hold up for you as well.

2022 Slingshot – Copycats Pro | Wakeboard Review

By  •  March 3, 2022

CopyCatsClub is a group of riders responsible for giving women wakeboarders a bigger platform in the sport. Founded by Sina Fuchs, CopyCat’sClub has been able to bring together some of the best women riders in the sport to build a community with their own online news bulletin, eshop, print publicatoin, movie (with a second on the way) and most recently a pro model board with Slingshot. Explained simply, the CopyCats Pro takes two of slingshot’s most tried and true boards and mashes them together for a unique yet familiar ride. This board takes the Coalition’s chined rails and pairs them with the silhouette of a Terrain to meet somewhere in the middle of the two. The CopyCats Pro’s beveled edges are not as pronounced as the Coalition making the board track a bit better and also land with a bit more stability. This board was designed by some of the best female riders in the world, but don’t place this board into a gender specific category. Sina Fuch’s and the CopyCatsClub have done something special with this shape. It’s an intermediate option between two of the most successful boards in cable wakeboarding history and to overlook it would be a disservice to yourself.
