Slingshot has completely redesigned the Dwarf Craft for 2021. Very impressive looking.

It's mentioned that the board is lighter than it's predecessor, but no weight is listed. Does anyone have those weights?

Just unboxed my new DC 100. I don't have a scale. Pads are a bit thicker vs 2020 DC micro--needed in my opinion--an attachment point at the nose (nice) and foot strap inserts everywhere if you ride strapped, and most importantly, the tracks will easily accommodate surf-wing placement as well as speed wings like last year's.

Bolting my foil on now...

Nice! Could you measure from the back of the track to the forward most center insert?

Two days on my 100 DC. Winner for me.

Amazing what 10cm less than my 2020 110 DC Micro does to the feel of the ride. Very much feel like I am riding on my foil now vs riding on a board that is connected to a foil. Very cool feeling. I think this is as short as I will go. I tried a 93 cm board and for my size--6'4"--it felt like too little real estate to move feet around.

Your milage may vary

Hey Eric, can you also give Nak an info on Maximum load weight allowed on the board ? Thanks.

What are your thoughts about the micro for advanced beginner/intermediate toilets? I’ve been looking into getting a new foil setup and I love the thought of a small board when to comes to travel and it seems like it would be pretty trippy out on the water. At this point though I’m just beginning to practice transitions and tacks. Would 100cm or 110cm board hinder my progression?

110 may actually speed things up. Depending on your skill set, 100 might be a bigger jump than what you want. Within reason, smaller boards are easier to water start and so forth, so falling in and having to get going again is a lot less work. But, I am not a fan of larger boards. Some folks who rip are.

My 120 just arrived today! Very Happy KiteGirlHR's weights in the above post are what is listed on the Slingshot Website. What's interesting is that mine tips the scales right at 7 pounds. Maybe my scale needs calibrating... Very nice board from the feel and looks. Back of the mast track to bow most insert is 31". Plenty of room to adjust for surf wings...
