2020 Slingshot Tyrant
What Slingshot has to say about the 2020 Tyrant:
Completely redesigned for 2020, the Tyrant is the hard-charging wave slayer in our lineup designed for riders who want a board they can charge down the line and lock into high-speed turns. A classic short board shape, slender outline and rounded squash tail give the Tyrant a sharp, snappy feel and the locked-in drive you want when committing to bigger, faster, more critical waves. For 2020, all Slingshot surfboards feature new construction that makes them significantly lighter and gives a more connected surfboard feel while maintaining the durability needed to stand up to the sport of kitesurfing.

Tyrant Technical Features
- NEW Lighter Construction
Our 2020 surf line features new hand crafted EPS foam core construction with bamboo and carbon reinforcements to retain strength and durability while achieving a significantly lighter overall weight.
- NEW Rounded Squash Tail
A versatile tail shape that is responsive and maintains speed through slower, weaker or mushier sections of waves.
- Bamboo Belly Patch
Light and strong, a section of bamboo laminate is inlaid over the front foot section of the board to provide the extra durability needed to withstand the impacts of kitesurfing.
- Tri-Fin Configuration
Also known as the thruster, this setup is stable, maneuverable and versatile. It holds well in powered up action and on steep, critical sections of waves.
- FCSII Keyless Fins
No tool required, just click in and click out. They're quick, easy, convenient and just as secure.
- NEW Corduroy Deck Pad
Slightly softer than our deck pads of the past, this new corduroy texture provides tons of grip and is as pleasing to your feet as it is to the eye.
- Carbon Reinforcements
Lengthwise carbon stringers, top and bottom, provide strength and stiffness, carbon rails along the tail help prevent cracking, heel dents and damage from hard landings.
- NEW Footstrap Insert Position
The inserts on the tail of the board have been repositioned to give riders the optimal rear foot position when riding straps. This places your foot directly over the rear fins for a better drive, turn, and more snap.
