The Native was created with design input from Slingshot pro team rider Alex Graydon with the goal of creating the ULTIMATE crossover board for all riding styles.
The Native has proven to be a Slingshot team favorite for both cable-exclusive and boat-exclusive riders since its debut in 2020. This true crossover king is a reincarnation of two legacy models from years past—the Recoil and Response—with upgrades like the Elliptical Concave and subtle Flex Tips to meet the needs of the new-age rider. It's fast and free on the water and features a medium flex pattern that's rigid enough for explosive pop on the boat without sacrificing its playfulness in the park. This deck is undoubtedly your one-stop shop for every type of riding—built for the rider that can't be bound to just one discipline.

ATOMIC WOOD CORE
Vertically laminated wood core construction is what gives Slingshot boards their famous flavor and flex.
CARBON BEDROCK INSERTS
Light, flexible and super strong, our Carbon Bedrock Inserts reduce overall board weight, increases pull strength and allows for a more consistent flex under foot.
SINGLE-SHOT FUSION SIDEWALLS
Their innovative manufacturing process literally infuses the rail into the core of the board with a single shot, eliminating the need for fasteners or staples, which produces unrivaled dampening and durability.
With .7mm's of bulletproof protection between your board and the surfaces you're sliding across, this base layer is ready for battle. Put to the test daily by some of the most daring park riders in the game.
CONTINUOUS ROCKER PROFILE
This continuous curve equates to faster board speed on the water, allowing you to ride for longer periods of time with less arm fatigue and delivering an exciting, fast and fun feel.
SIGNATURE FLEX TIPS
Designed to make nose and tail presses more exhilarating. Flex Tips move the flex point out from the belly of the board and more into the tips for a whole new feel on rails.

2022 OPTION BOOTS
The Option boot is the highest performance open-toe wake boot on the market. Built to accommodate a larger range of shoe sizes than the closed-toe boots, the Options are an excellent choice for sharing amongst a family or group of riders. The Gummy Strap Closure System allows riders to strap in tight with ease and trust that the boots will hold tight throughout the entirety of their session. Throw some built-in J Bars, a 3D-molded tongue and Bottomless Base System all into the mix and it's safe to say that when it comes to open boots, the Option is the TOP CHOICE.
BOTTOMLESS BASE SYSTEM
The Bottomless Base System maximizes riders "feel" and connectivity with their board and the water. Boot liner soles are in direct contact with the boards' surface, allowing for a more immediate transfer of energy.
BUILT-IN J BARS
In the heels of the liners, built-in J Bars cup the back of the riders ankle to eliminate all "play" in the heel of the boot, elevating both the support and performance.
GUMMY STRAP CLOSURE SYSTEM
The Gummy Strap Closure System has changed the game for wakeboarders around the world when it comes to dialing in the perfect amount of pressure throughout the boot.
3D-Molded Tongues make the boots "fit like a glove" every time you slide in. Forget about the classic wiggle and dance to find the perfect place for your foot—with 3D molded tongues the fit is perfect time after time.
