You don't have to ride like Keith to appreciate this board. Sharing all the great features of our Ballistic line, the 2012 Slingshot Lyman is extremely rider friendly, but has simply taken wake performance to an incredible new level.
Evolving from our Ballistic Line, Slingshot’s most advanced boards yet, Keith Lyman’s all NEW state of the art pro model is the latest in flex technology. The first of its kind, this board combines the most powerful core available with multiple molded base features to generate intense speed and explosive pop, exactly what Keith demands from a board. With a single concave between the asymmetrical molded fins, a V-Bottom and planing rails, it offers clean and early release off the wake, and ultra soft landings. The Lyman is the ultimate wake riding board!

|Hmm, where to begin.... Well, first off Keith's royalties are being donated to the Wounded Warrior Project, and Slingshot is matching that donation as well. So right off the bat, it's a winner.
Moving on, off the wake...FORGET ABOUT IT! No other board will take you for a ride this. So much pop in this board. The design of the bottom of the board allows it to generate copious amounts of speed, the v bottom helps to it to land softly, like Sullenberger crash landing that jet on the Hudson, the Lyman's rider will hit the water safe and sound.
The board has almost ZERO torsional flex, in rough water it still cuts like a Henckels Santoku blade all the way through the wake.
Durability? Let's just say your other board will break first. Urethane sidewalls and a vertically laminated 100% Colombian Gold wood core see to that.
On top of all the amazing things listed in this review, there are a few more key points... Military themed 4D Graphics that bring COD to the water, Fast Track mounting and 2 different fin positions.
The Lyman gives you options, but either way it still takes you to the moon.
Thank you Keith for your sacrifice for our freedoms!
