Key Features of the Slingshot Response Wakeboard:
The ultimate freeride wakeboard has never been better. The 2012 Slingshot Response offers effortless carving, smooth pop, and the softer landings than ever.
With significant influence by Jeff McKee, the 2012 Slingshot Response has evolved into a board that portrays his cunning wit and love for wakeboarding. This board is by far the most popular board in our lineup, and not because it consistently has great graphics, even though they are amazing, and if you look closely you could win something really cool. It's hands down the most rider friendly wakeboard on earth, and is responsible for the steezy style most of our team riders are known for. If you want to have more wakeboarding fun than ever before, and look cool while you're at it, get a 2012 Response!
