"make you pay"...like a drill sergeant. or some other strict teacher. They will force you to learn good technique. "make you pay" and the analogy i gave might not be the best choice of words, but i don't know what would be. Flex is just something you have to try. *** many of my friends who were just starting out wakeboarding like riding my slingshot more than a traditional stiffer foam core board... so don't think that slingshots and flexier boards are for advanced riders only
For me riding slingshot makes riding so much more fun. I like the playfulness of the board. i can press it out on the water (or on rails which i don't ride much) and slide and butter around. the pop has got a bit of a springy trampoline feel. landings feel softer to me (some argue otherwise).
choosing slingshot has some other benefits that may or may not matter:
-Made in the USA
-materials come from USA
-boards are made with green initiatives in mind
-wood is from sustainable forests
-Energy for the factory (moonshine manufacturing, owned by slingshot basically) comes from wind
