Youth wakeboards are hard to come by, at least any that are actually worth buying. This was before Slingshot got into water sports, and since entering into this very competitive realm a few years back they have made a pretty good name for themselves. The Super Grom series is one of their finest which was specifically created with younger riders in mind whether it be beginner, intermediate, or professional wakeboarders.

The Slingshot Super Grom Wakeboard is a youth board which features some high end specs which include a continuous rocker and comes in two different sizes. You can choose from a 125 and 130cm board which is perfect constructed with youth riders in mind. Coming standard with Slingshot’s customary 4D graphics, it’s safe to bet you won’t find another wakeboard that compares to this.

Great for Newbies, Feature Rich for Intermediates

The Slingshot Super Grom is a great wakeboard for newbies and is feature rich for intermediate riders. Beginners will appreciate the ES Base which offers a good mix of flexibility and rebound. Despite not having fins, the subtle tail and tip embossed channels allow the water to flow naturally giving riders an added sense of traction.

The wider board provides a good foundation which is better suited for beginners. Intermediates will appreciate the twin-tip grab rail which will help perfecting tricks and helping get more air coming off the wake. Boat and park riders will see a better overall wakeboarding experience, but advanced level riders will find that Super Grom is well-underequipped.

Resin X and Vertically Laminated Wood Core

Durability is one of the biggest concerns with the Slingshot Super Grom wakeboard which features a vertically laminated wood core. The Resin X composite makes it a bit stronger, but most other Slingshot wakeboards feature a higher end technology. This makes aggressive riding not an option, and those looking for a great deal of speed may want to look elsewhere.
