2020 Slingshot Misfit
What Slingshot has to say about the 2020 Misfit:
The all NEW 2020 Misfit features a new outline and a NEW tip and tail profile. This new outline reduces board drag as well as giving it a smoother release from the water. With a new tip and tail profile, riders will experience less spray in the face and more forgiving landings when learning new tricks. Still featuring a space age hybrid Koroyd & wood core, the new 2020 Misfit is rewriting the formula of the progressive freeride twin tip. This board has been a Slingshot cult favorite, world renowned as one of the best all around twin tips in the world. Legions of die-hard fans and kiteboarders have ridden the Misfit at one point in their lifetime. It's beginner friendly, freestyle friendly, upwind, downwind, flat water, chop and big air friendly. It's our most versatile board, designed for all-conditions utility, with enough tech and performance built in to stand up to its reputation as one of the best all-around twin tips in kiteboarding.

Misfit Technical Features
- Koroyd tips
Sections of thermally welded Co-Polymer Tubes provide a lighter, more responsive ride with more strength and flex than a full wood core.
- Continuous Rocker
A smooth, consistent curve provides a fast ride, predictable pop, great carving performance and disperses water to soften landings.
- NACA Tech Channels
Aeronautic technology meets action sports with NACA TECH. These precision laser cut parabolic channels direct water like a vacuum from the middle of the board through the tail. This directed water accelerates through the channel and increases the board speed and grip to the water. This provides the rider with better board speed and traction when riding.
- Atomic Wood Core
Sustainably grown Paulownia gives the lively, springy character that Slingshot boards are famous for. Vertically laminated construction harnesses the collective strength of the wood's grain and provides strength, durability and consistent flex over the life of the board.
- Carbon Bedrock Inserts
Light, flexible and super strong, our inserts are reinforced with carbon fiber before being inlaid into the board. Reduces overall board weight, increases pull strength and allows for a more consistent flex under foot.
- Singleshot Fusion Sidewalls
We've transferred the same technology found in high durometer urethane skateboard wheels into the rail of all our boards. Our innovative manufacturing process literally infuses the rail into the board cores in one single shot, producing unrivaled dampening and durability.
- Dura-Light Base
This .2mm base material is the ideal strength to weight ratio. Lightweight performance in a strong and durable package.
- NEW Outline and Tip/Tail Profile
The all new 2020 Misfit features a new outline and a new tip and tail profile. This new outline reduces board drag as well as giving it a smoother release from the water. With a new tip and tail profile riders will experience less spray in the face and more forgiving landings when learning new tricks.
- NEW Kite Fins & Grab Handle
Excellent board, much better than previous years! Great price and performance, no point in wasting thousands on a carbon fiber board every year when this misfit will undoubtedly last for years.
