GLK is proud to be stocking the new Slingshot Stand up Paddle Board called the Crossbreed and their 100% carbon paddle called the Sling Blade :-) Here is some of the info....the board is now in stock and you can find it on our online store under SUP's.



2012 Slingshot Crossbreed SUP



New for 2012, Slingshot introduces the Crossbreed. Built with the most advanced materials and state of the art technology, the Crossbreed is ahead of the pack.

Designed for flatwater performance yet crosses over to wide variety of water conditions. The Crossbreed packs in a ton of performance offering maximum speed, efficiency and stability on flatwater while easily handling knee high to shoulder high surf.

Built with WVS construction the result is a proven lightweight, impact resistant board. This board is more durable and packs the performance of a larger board into a smaller package.


The Crossbreed is the perfect board for those who want to go fast on flatwater but also wants great performance in small to mediums sized surf. Great for recreational riders as well as aspiring racers allowing them to hang tight with the race pack.

Riders will love this board in flatwater conditions and will outperform when they run into chop or when punching through waves and surf to get to the finish line.

The Crossbreed is a board you will never outgrow.
