The Slingshot Crisis is classed as the beginner to intermediate board in Slingshots line. But don't think it's simple it's just a classic design that most riders will really enjoy the ride. It has all the build quality of the other Slingshot boards but has a single concave bottom and similar rocker and profile to the Misfit but a softer flex. It makes it an awesome freeride and progression freestyle board. A flatter rocker line and softer flex smooths through the chop and have awesome upwind drive. Now lighter without the channels the Crisis is an all round board for all conditions that progresses with you through jumps and carves. The finish is awesome as you would expect from a top level Slingshot board. If you want a more aggressive freestyle board then checkout the Asylum while the Misfit is the all round board of the range.

Slingshot wood core construction:
Every Slingshot kiteboard is hand built in the United States, in a small factory just down the road from company headquarters in Hood River. Boards are made from vertically laminated wood cores. This process utilizes the collective strength of the wood’s end grain and creates boards with unrivaled pop, rebound and flex characteristics. Nothing beats a wood core.
NEW Carbon bedrock inserts:
In 2017 you will notice lighter boards, a more continuous flex pattern and performance that is tuned precisely for each board’s design concept. You asked for weight reduction, better flex control and increased feel. You got it. New carbon-reinforced inserts, replace the Fastrack system. The insert pull strength is increased by 30%, while the overall board weight is cut by 10%.
