Slingshot Tyrant Kiteboard 2014

Ask anyone who’s been on the Tyrant, it’s the perfect balance of incredible high performance and long lasting durability.

The 2014 Tyrant is a true high performance traditional shape that does it all. It’s responsive and lively core has a deep single to double concave and a “pulled in” squash tail that makes the Tyrant sharp and more forgiving in all surf and wind conditions. The tri-fin setup offers plenty of drive and great release off the wave for strapless air. This smooth-riding, stable board offers incredible performance to keep experienced kitesurfers ripping while being forgiving enough for first-time surfboard riders.

Our entire line of surf boards features art by progressive surfer and artist Phil Goodrich.

Slingshot T-Rex Kiteboard 2014

The 2014 T-REX was developed for a new breed of riders focusing on aerial tricks and fun, poppy changes in direction. This unique, progressive shape is trending in the surf industry with the top pro riders. Patrick Rebstock prefers this next generation surf shape because it makes it easier to spin and flip tricks with less swing weight and has a tight precise feel to blast upwind.

Slingshot Space Pickle WVX Kiteboard 2014

This unique shape has been gaining a reputation as a fun, dynamic wave catcher in our Wakesurf and SUP lines for the last couple years. Now we’ve finally managed to bring it to our true surf line where it was originally developed. Hand shaped by Tony Logosz, the 2014 Space Pickle offers the control and stability of a longboard with the agility and performance of a short-board. It features a variable tucked hard rail for added bite in the pocket and a double concave with an aggressive V spine through the tail for looser transition from edge to edge. However, the first thing you will notice about this shape is a large volume profile, which provides unmatched performance for super fun days, everyday.

Slingshot Celeritas Kiteboard 2014

While still maintaining it’s short “trunk” style and aggressive concave, the 2014 Celeritas features a curvy outline and simple thumb tail that provides more surface area allowing the board extra lift and control in between turns.

Slingshot Misfit Kiteboard 2014

The Misfit continues to deliver controlled progressive flex and top-level performance better than ever. Our full wood core absorbs and releases energy, adding a lively and responsive feel to the riding experience.

Engineered to take your skills to the next level, the 2014 Misfit provides a more dynamic feel than a traditional molded-foam board and provides smooth riding through chop without kicking spray in your face. The Misfit’s proven, user-friendly outline offers exceptional upwind drive and killer load-and-pop capability. A short and effective edge makes for lightning-quick hookup and ultimate edge control in the harshest of conditions.

Slingshot Asylum Kiteboard 2014

With its reintroduction last year, the Asylum has quickly become a rider favorite among our dynamic team as well as everyday core riders.
The next generation 2014 Asylum delivers magnified flex performance through its premium Atomic Wood Core, aggressive pop and outstanding flex plus unmatched durability. The full wood core releases stored energy lightning-quick and more forcefully than ever through increased edging power while maintaining momentum on flat landings. Engineered to ride with or without fins, this board pops hard on ollies, whips for hard-core freestyle, slides right on rails and even boosts big off any wave.
