Slingshot wakeskates?
I was watching the "Hand Built In The USA" video from Slingshot and I noticed that they show a glimpse of a Remote deck being cut and a group of blank unfinished wakeskates. Are Remote wakeskates built by Slingshot or is Slingshot starting to build wakeskates? I couldn't find anything on their website about it. I think it's pretty great thing what they're doing, there's something to be said about products still being made in the USA. If you haven't seen the video, it's a pretty neat piece. Check it out.

Thanks for that! They look pretty sweet, I might give one a try next season.

And just to add, remote is a completely separate company and has no affiliation with slingshot, aside from them both being produced by moonshine manufacturing.

Moonshine Manufacturing makes Slingshot and Remote. Slingshot and Remote are different companies, just made by the same manufacturer.

They are amazing wakeskates. And they are doing amazing things for the sport.
