Daniel's review of the 2021 Slingshot Nomad Wakeboard
Built as a crossover model between boat and cable, this board is what lead us to the discovery that bigger boards bring bigger pop, smoother landings, more stability, and of course MORE STYLE on the water. With the added surface area, riders are able to plane at slower speeds, ride with less tension on the line, and, in turn, spend more time riding with less fatigue on the body. The Nomad has enough stiffness in the belly to deliver excellent pop behind the boat, yet in the past few seasons has become a cable favorite as well.
Daniel from Prowake here. Today let's talk about the Nomad.
The way that I like to think of the Nomad is, think about a skateboard. You've got a long board and you slide to cruise down the street to get a loaf of bread, milk, whatever.
And then you got, the other board. It's the tech board that you take into the skate park. Take in the bowl, take it into the ramp. Do kick-flips, ollie, so that sort of thing. This is the purebred longboard that you just get on the water and it's like you go on to get a loaf of bread.
You just like, cruise, there's nothing too solid about it. It's really flexi board. And just, 'cuz its a wide and sorta long, it doesn't wear your arms out. It doesn't wear your legs out. It doesn't wear your back out, you're just cruising just having a good time.
This board is perfect for bigger blokes, bigger people Or people who just wanna cruise at the cable, or behind the boat and just have a fun run.
