Slingshot’s best and only skim style shape, the Butter Bar is a playful ride that will have you spinning in circles in excitement. The lower volume makes it less buoyant than most skim style boards, giving it a reactive feel on the water. Like any skim style board, the Butter Bar is best suited for those that seek a slippery, playful ride that wakesurfers find easier for spins and other various tricks.
The pin tail design allows the board to be rode both regular and switch so spin to win and ride it out no matter what direction of the board is facing the boat. A flat, wide belly on the board lets it quickly accelerate and carry speed to get into the pocket of the wave and stay there. Its double concave hull makes for quick edge to edge transitions. Dual cupped rail channels give the board good hold and grip while still breaking the board free easily for skim tricks. Its customizable three fin configuration gives you versatility in how you set up your Butter Bar. Ride with a single tail fin for the most skim feel or ride with all three for more grip and hold.
