Perfect for rail sliding: Learn nose and tail presses easily

Any Slingshot Sports Terrain wakeboard review will show you how easy it is to do tail and nose presses using this board. Knowing how to tail press helps you unlock more sliding power. This is very important in a cable wakeboard.


A nose press requires you to press the front foot down and lift the rear foot. It may look so easy from a casual glance, but it is quite a mean feat to achieve.

Thankfully, the Slingshot Terrain Sports Wakeboard is designed to help wakeboarders unlock tail and nose presses as it gives more control. The extra thick sidewalls, wider tip and tail, and softer flex make it easier to stay on an obstacle till the end so you can learn to master rail sliding.

When on the water, you will enjoy the stability that comes from the wider tip and tail. The wide surface area of the board gives it more contact with the water, which means the speed may be a tad slower. But hey, when you are a beginner, you need stability and control more than speed.

The continuous rocker on the Slingshot Sports Terrain wakeboard makes it not only easy to control, but also predictable. These are good qualities for a wakeboard designed for beginners. The board offers a consistent experience whether you are riding at high or low speed.


The single shot fusion wakeboard walls means the walls and the core of the board are fused. This is what makes the board easy to control over the park obstacles.This features works in combination with the soft flex design of the Slingshot terrain wakeboard to get it to respond to every nudge and direction.
