#BenSquad aka Team Slingshot – 2017
From The Team slingshot:
It’s a new year and we’re is stoked to be riding the best line-up of boards to date! At your request we have the all NEW Ballistic Base for the park, New Flex Tips for locking into presses, Carbon Bedrock Inserts, and all new mounting / closure systems on our boot line. We’re stoked for what 2017 will bring and can’t wait to see what Slingshot board riders will be able to accomplish across the globe…including YOU!
Featured in this new edit is team rider and close friend Ben Leclair who as some of you may already know took a heavy crash towards the end of the 2016 season and needs our support to conquer his injury and join us on the water again. Ben has always been one of the smoothest and most stylish riders to watch and laid it all on the line in the name of progressing his riding. If you’d like to help support Ben’s recovery we encourage you to follow the link below, and of course, enjoy this new edit of the entire team during our 2017 photoshoot at the Shredtown Ranch.
