The first of its kind, the Slingshot Lyman Wakeboard combines the most powerful core available with multiple molded base features to generate intense speed and explosive pop, exactly what Keith demands from a board.

Comments about Slingshot Lyman Wakeboard 2012:

Hmm, where to begin.... Well, first off Keith's royalties are being donated to the Wounded Warrior Project, and Slingshot is matching that donation as well. So right off the bat, it's a winner. Moving on, off the wake...FORGET ABOUT IT! No other board will take you for a ride this. So much pop in this board. The design of the bottom of the board allows it to generate copious amounts of speed, the v bottom helps to it to land softly, like Sullenberger crash landing that jet on the Hudson, the Lyman's rider will hit the water safe and sound. The board has almost ZERO torsional flex, in rough water it still cuts like a Henckels Santoku blade all the way through the wake. Durability? Let's just say your other board will break first. Urethane sidewalls and a vertically laminated 100% Colombian Gold wood core see to that. On top of all the amazing things listed in this review, there are a few more key points... Military themed 4D Graphics that bring COD to the water, Fast Track mounting and 2 different fin positions. The Lyman gives you options, but either way it still takes you to the moon. Thank you Keith for your sacrifice for our freedoms!

        Love this board. Sorry I wasted so much time of inferior boards. Pricey, but the grin on my mug probably makes up for that.

              This board is a joy to ride. I went from being rather indifferent when it came to wakeboarding to manic in one session. Board has just the right amount of looseness to it when the fins are mounted at the inner positions. Very similar feel to riding a snowboard (holds the edge when you want it and releases when you want it). The only flaw is the mounting hardware, and it's not a big deal. Slingshot is close,with their track system, but the mounting hardware needs a little tweak to get it just right (hint: Toolless design, similar to the Ronix toggle hardware would be a welcomed improvement). The only downside is I wish I would have had this board three years ago when I started WB'n. So much lost time.
