2018 Slingshot Misfit Air Core Kiteboard

A reboot of Slingshot’s ever-popular Misfit series, the Air Core is a board designed towards progression without being a board that will be outgrown. There’s nothing worse than outgrowing a board, and Slingshot has catered directly to this with a board that planes easily, rides upwind incredibly well, and is offered for a great price, all without sacrificing higher-end performance. If you’re looking for one board to conquer all of the conditions while you’re learning and even when you’ve progressed to a proficient rider, the Misfit Air Core is a great option for you.

What Slingshot has to say about the 2018 Misfit Aircore

Owning the right twin tip can change your entire kiteboarding experience. In an industry where it’s often difficult to decipher the difference from one board to another, Slingshot has taken the opposite approach. In this 2018 lineup, you’ll see a diverse selection of boards, each distinctly designed for different riding styles and performance features. Whether you’re a high-flying freestyle fanatic, an upwind master or a mellow weekend warrior, we’ve got the right board for you.  Lighter isn’t always better. In this case, however, the 2018 Misfit is by far our lightest- and best- version yet. Inspired by the same ridiculously strong and lightweight material trusted in the best bike helmets on the market, the new Misfit Air Core features large sections of Koroyd in the tip, tail and lengthwise underfoot. The result: A lighter, more responsive and more dynamic Misfit. The Misfit Air Core features mild rocker, a relatively stiff flex and a bottom profile that favor upwind drive, plow-through-chop performance and all-around freeride handling. Laser-cut NACA channels give the Misfit contour in the tip and tail that help channel water to generate speed and grip. Although a competent freestyle crossover, the Misfit Air Core’s mild rocker means it’s better for all-around cruising and slashing than it is for sticking hard landings.
