WHY YOU'LL LOVE THE ASYLUM

- One of the most durable twin tips ever made (thanks to the combo of its Dura-Light Base and Atomic Wood Core)
- Slingshot's highest performance freestyle board- the go-to for WKL, WKC and Air Games World Champ, Carlos Mario
Package includes: Asylum board, kite fins 4 x 1.75" (1.9x15.2cm), grab handle
- Hot Sheet 10k Carbon Stringer: The stiffest carbon stringer in any board Slingshot makes results in maximum rebound and pop for superior freestyle and big-air capabilities.
- 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 durable inserts that maintain the board's flex underfoot for a consistent feel from tip to tail.
- Chined Plane Rails: Designed to completely redirect spray away and down, these belly channels reduce the area of contact between the board and the surface of the water. The chined rails also help prevent catching an edge on fast and sketchy landings.
- Singleshot Fusion Sidewall: Slingshot's transferred the same technology found in high durometer urethane skateboard wheels into the rail of all their boards. Their innovative manufacturing process literally infuses the rail into the board cores in one single shot, producing unrivaled dampening and durability.
- Precision Laser Cut Channels: By utilizing the latest in laser-cutting technology, all of their boards feature the cleanest, most precise construction. What this laser tech means to you as a rider is boards that have consistently cleaner takeoffs, smoother landings, better response, tons of grip, load-and-pop, and upwind drive.
- Dura-Light Base: This .2mm base material is the ideal strength to weight ratio. Lightweight performance in a strong and durable package.
- Continuous Rocker: A smooth, consistent curve provides a fast ride, predictable pop, great carving performance and disperses water to soften landings.
