I ride cable about everyday and boat about twice a week, the bad thing is is that i go through alot of boards and dont have a board sponsor or anything. I cant afford buying a board every 3 to 4 weeks, and I heard slingshot will warranty any board i break at all for a year straight. is this true?? i absolutely love slingshots boards too so that would be a plus as well

I've never had them not warranty anything but I don't go through a board ever few weeks either.

best bet would be to call them up and dial the extension for warrarty, you'll talk to Kyle, he is super cool he'll be able to help you out

Does Slingshot warranty boards that have been used on rails?

I ride lots of rails too and my 09 is still at like 95%... its nuts. and its really nice to be able to ride the cable, change nothing on my board and go ride boat while my friends are switching setups, swapping boards etc etc etc.

I had an 07 warranty that had an issue with a crack near a fin hole (not related to rail use) but it was used on rails and that was replaced with an 08'.... hows that for service.

hey nick, how do the fins hold up on rails? do you take them off for rail sets or at the cable park?

the new 09 fins are hold up great.... I use them if I forget to take them off... but all my fins have been used 10+ times at the cable and are hardly worn down.

they are like the old rainbow fins for a few years back.... reaaaal nice.

Thanks for the love guys! Colin, we have one of the best boards on the market for hitting rails. I personally look at every board and determine if we can do anything for you. The cool think with our boards is you can repair them very easy if you take a chunk out of them. Hit me up if you have any questions 509-427-4950x0023

"but how do you repair a chunk?"

I hit a submerged log like a week after I got my '08 black pearl and freaked out. I took a pretty large chunk out of it. I called up kyle and sent him some pics and he told me exactly how to fix it with pvc epoxy.

Since then i have used this as my jib stick and LOVE it on rails. I will never hit another rail on anything but a SS.

It was a nice surprise to see that it has held up REALLY well.

Colin what are your boards looking like after rails? are they snapping or just getting bottom damage?
