The Pearl is endowed with a continuous rocker shape on an elliptical concave base made of high-quality materials.

Top Picks

Slingshot’s wakeboards are made with the same wood core system covered by strong carbon fiber, but their structures differ markedly, and therefore their performance is not the same.

The Contrast is noticeably slower than the Valley, which offers fast and smooth rides, thanks to its continuous rocker, considered the best board for the cable park. Contrast provides remarkable performance, but its ability to vary from taking the rails and reaching obstacles up to being carried after the boat while performing stunts is what makes it special.

Final thoughts / Conclusion

Choosing the best board is not easy, and for many female riders, it takes time to discover what best suits them and their wakeboarding style. Slingshot has durable and high-performance boards to develop women’s full potential while reaching the next level. They are reinforced boards, which can either show off in the park or allow a rider to enjoy the full experience on the water behind a boat.

If you are the woman looking to slide on a stable board and maneuver in the park, Slingshot Valley Wakeboard will help you adapt to this sport with ease. But if yours is boat riding or you still haven’t decided your style, whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced wakeboarder, Contrast will adapt to you and provide you with great rides.
