The 2015 Terrain is everything you need in the park and nothing you don’t. Designed exclusively for park riders, this board features the softest flex Slingshot has ever offered. The terrain is an excellent choice for intermediate rail riders looking to get over that next hump and master their presses. XL sidewalls combine with the ES base and minimal bottom features to ensure maximum durability and longevity in the park. The wider tip profile helps the rider lock in throughout the entire length of obstacles. With no training wheel option (oops excuse us “fins”), the Terrain helps riders utilize proper edging techniques and offers complete freedom on rails and obstacles. Get ready to take your rail riding to the next level as you become the master of the Terrain.

Honestly, compairing the terrain to any other board is a little difficult. It truely is a new riding experience. With its insane ability to flex, it feels closer to riding a snowboard than any other board on the market. But of course, where there are advantages to added flex there will also be disadvantages. I'll just make this black and white and list off pros and cons: Pro- Nose Presses and Tail Presses have never been easier or more legit. You can really feel the board bend under your feet allowing you to press to the point that both feet are completely off the rail. Con- Slight lose in ollie height. With a softer board you will obviously have a little less pop on your ollie. More flex means less pressure you can create between your board and the water when you stomp the tail down (its science). Pro- Blunt Slides are now possible. With a little work, you can quickly turn a backlip nose into a back nose blunt. Con- Heavy Landings are a little weird. coming down from high without speed, the board will have a slight upward bend that will make the board pause for a second on the water. Although I found the landings to be pretty soft with an appropriate amount of speed. Pro- Manuals and Butterslides. If you like to have fun on the water like me you'll love this board. You can hold manuals for days. It's so much fun for just popping around the park or behind a ski. That is, if you like to have fun. Overall, I really like the board. I think its pro's outweigh its cons. I also belive that its only barely been ridden and explored. I think there may be a way to addapt your riding (ollies and landings) to the way it behaves. I'll continue riding it and you should try it out. Cheers! Alex.

let me start off by saying that I'm a huge slingshot fan. I am not trying make slingshot look bad with this review I'm just trying to give my honest opinion. I've had my terrain for about two weeks now and I hate it. At first I was excited about it because the flex is unreal but there are a few major downfalls to it that ruined it for me. The first thing I noticed when I left the start dock at the cable is how incredibly soft the flex pattern is this thing literally feels like a snowboard. When I cross a small roller at the park I can actually feel the roller under my front foot first then under my back foot its weird that it flexes that way. In the corners this is the most fun board I've ever ridden!!! the butterslides are amazing on this thing!!! You can do nose presses on the surface of the water around the corners at a cable park. Unfortunately the downfalls greatly out weigh the perfect butterslides... first off when you push down for your pre pop to Ollie onto a rail it flexes so much that higher ollies become a little tougher, I can still get the height its just a little more inconsistent. Second the flex is so soft I cant feel it if that makes sense, I've found myself falling on a lot more nose and tail presses that I usually never fall on. the best way I can explain it is when I lean into my press my subconscious mind knows how that board is suppose to be pushing back against me trying to pull me back down from a press, but with the terrain I struggle to find the sweet spot because it gives so much I find myself looping out a lot. The biggest downfall to me is that it lands like a brick. That is no joke it has to be the hardest landing board I've ever ridden and I've ridden a ton of boards in the ten years I've been wakeboarding. The hard landings were the deal breakers for me. I've always loved my slingshots because they seem to be bomb proof and last forever taking beatings off the kickers but this board I've been having to take it easy on for two reasons one is a normal xxl kicker hit not going huge feels like I just jumped out of a four story building when I land. Second I'm having to stay off the kickers more because it feels like its going to snap really fast and not last like my reflexes, recoils, and shred towns that I've had lasted. On the more positive note the graphic is the best one I've ever seen, but overall this board overall was a huge let down it kinda sucks that I paid 420 bucks for a board that's only really fun in the corners and has an awesome graphic on it. I believe I'm just going to get another reflex so I can go back to really having fun at the cable.

This board is a park riders dream. The freedom that you get with the super soft flex is very similar to the feeling of a snowboard under your feet, very different from any board I have ever ridden previously. At first it was very weird switching over from my shredtown. Especially on the kickers, the landings were pretty rough but after I started to adjust my riding and kicker landings to the terrain's flex pattern I got so comfortable with it that the when I tried to switch back to the shredtown I couldnt land anything. The presses are on it INSANE! It's so fun to try to control the flex and really press out all your normal rail tricks to the max. This board overall is a blast if you are looking for the perfect meltedsnowboard!

This board to me has made wakeboarding fun again at the park, not just because of the sweet power slides around the corners but because it has the most flex out of the entire Slingshot line up. Now im not saying you'll fall in love with it the first lap, as i found i had to learn how to tame the flex as you dont have to work as hard to get into a nose or tail press. Having no channels on the bottom of the board allows for you not to get hung up on rails. I also like how big the board is, i found with a wider board it allowed for you to land stronger because of the surface area that you have. The graphic is fun and exciting and i think matches the board 100%

I love the new terrain. The super soft flex pattern makes presses on rails an absolute blast. If you struggle to hold a press throughout the length of a rail this board will surely get you over that hump. It's a bit more noodly than say the reflex or shredtown so it doen't push back quite as fast, but the pressability is unreal!
