Slingshot 2018 Butter Bar 52" XR Wakesurfer
Classic Pintail Skimboard Shape
The Butter Bar features a wide midsection, tapered tip and tail, and a classic skimboard pintail. It's fast and agile with a washy feel that's perfect for practicing spins, Shuvits, and other skate-inspired tricks.
2" G10 Tri-Fin Setup
Three 2" screw-on fins provide the perfect balance of freedom and grip. Not too loose, not too grippy, the Butter Bar is right in the middle, just the way you want a skim to feel.
Mild Nose Rocker
Not your flat plywood skim, the Butter Bar features a noticeable nose rocker that helps prevent pearling and allows riders sit deeper in the pocket without having to worry about nosediving.
The Butter Bar XR is an upgraded version of the Butter Bar that features a high-tech carbon matrix overlay and stringer that yields added stiffness and strength and gives the board an unbelievable visual appeal. The butter bar is Slingshot's #1 seller within the wakesurf line for one simple reason: It's the king of surfing almost any wave, big or small, round or steep. The flat rocker line makes the board extremely fast and gives surfers the best chance of a slack line and the freedom of a 100% wave-propelled surf session. The butter bar's full EVA deck pad allows surfers to stand anywhere on the board and the tri-fin setup leaves plenty of room to experiment with the traction, speed, and stability of the board. Also if you've got a tidbit of that skate blood running through your veins, the butter bar is a blast for your skate style tricks without that rough patch of concrete below.
