A key player in the Ballistic series, the Newton is fast and predictable. The Slingshot Newton Wakeboard is made for hard charging freeride fanatics who want high speeds, crisp edge control and buttery soft landings. Slingshot designed this board for snappy flex, smooth release and ultimate speed behind the boat, or for massive airs on the cable.
Continuous Rocker Rider friendly rocker takes the effort out of going big and landing soft.
Subtle V Molded Channels Shaped into the tip and tail of the core, this dual concave bottom shape adds stability, increases speed on edge and provides a smooth release off the wake and ultra soft landings.
Taperwall™ A step-down rail delivers optimum edge control, sound handling in choppy water, bomber impact resistance and added stability at speed. From the belly of the board, it tapers off in thickness acting as a molded fin when the board is on edge.
SingleShot™ Fusion Sidewall Slingshot transferred the same technology found in high durometer urethane skateboard wheels into the rail of all their boards. Slingshot's innovative manufacturing process literally infuses the rail into the board cores in one single shot, producing unrivaled dampening and durability.
Park-Ready Tune™ Slingshot fine-tuned the shape of the board’s rails for customized performance.
Atomic-C Core Locally farmed from sustainable forests, Slingshot's all-wood, ultra lightweight core provides the liveliest feel ever. It features vertically laminated stringers and custom molded channels. There is no better core material for achieving the best flex performance and durability in a board than full wood.
Ultra-Glide Base Provides optimum glide across water and obstacles, for ultimate durability
Four 6" x .75" Lucid Wake Fins
New Fastrack™ For 2013, Slingshot has completely redesigned its proprietary mounting system and hardware to deliver increased stance options and simplify the boot installation. With a fresh and clean look, the Fastrack™ offers limitless micro stance adjustability and proven superior rider to board connection.
4D Graphics Utilizing cutting-edge graphic technology, every board features unique graphics and dimensional depth highlighting the core. By combining digital with hand crafted art, Slingshot is able to create boards that have a true sense of depth that is unlike anything else. No two boards look exactly the same.

Comments about Slingshot Newton Wakeboard 2013:
Alright this board is hands down one of the funnest wakeboards I have ever been on. With the continuous rocker, you get a super fast board that rips on the water and has consistent take offs with nice soft landings over the wake. It also holds a great edge, but when reverting or spinning on water it is super playful. & with a medium flex, you can butter around on this board comfortably without loosing edge hold and support. The only downside to this board was the clear fins that I received with the deck. 2 of them broke, first ride just from riding on water, no jibbing. I hit up Slingshot after, and they were super quick to send over some black durable replacement ones. If you are looking for a fun board to rip on the water and that does great in the air as well, this is the one for you!
