There are not that many signature rider pro model boards out there, especially for the girls, but last year Slingshot launched 2 awesome models side by side. The Refraction with the mail model fronted by Sam Light and the female version by Karolina Winkowska.
The board was hugely popular as it was not just another shorter, lighter board with pink graphics and a narrow stance, nope, it was a kick ass, hard as nails wake and freestyle board with a big rocker and agressive hard charging girls in mind and most certainly geared towards riding boots (although it can of course be ridden with straps too).
This year for 2017 the board is back with a new 2017 look and it is a stunner.
Building on the popularity of last year’s Refraction Karolina model, this freestyle-focused board is designed with hard-charging, aggressive and powered-up female riders in mind. It is modeled to the demands of world champion Karolina Winkowska. You will generate great power with or without boots and will love its smooth load and pop. It’s great for big airs and cushy landings thanks to a progressive rocker profile, subtle V-spine and wood core construction. When you press on rails or fun boxes, you will notice that you’re pressing on a flat surface with raise edges that prevents you from catching an edge.
