2016 Slingshot Crossbreed Inflatable
Unpack, pump-up, hop on and have fun: riders will love the quick and easy setup of Slingshot’s line of inflatable boards, and the convenience of a full-size, full performance SUP that fits into a backpack. The Air-Tech 11’ - the longer of our two inflatables – is 34.5” wide, 6” thick and has a volume of 320 liters. Like the 11’ version, the 10’ Air-Tech Crossbreed offers paddlers a solid all around board in a compact and easy-to-use platform that condenses into a backpack. The 10’ version is 33” wide, 6” thick and has a volume of 272 liters; the ideal choice for lighter riders or those looking to cross-over to small waves.
2016 Slingshot Crossbreed Hard Top
Whether paddling the waters of a calm mountain lake or waist-high ocean waves, Slingshot’s 11’ Crossbreed is the ultimate all-around standup paddle board. The shape, width and volume of the Crossbreed (11’x 33”x 230L) add up to a user-friendly profile that’s stable and forgiving enough for beginners just getting into the sport, while sturdy and maneuverable enough for advanced paddlers looking for high-end performance in a wide range of conditions.
