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.

    Rider Profile: 
    You’re not worried about pushing the limits of the sport, or your body. You just want to get out and ride, carve upwind, cruise through chop, land a few jumps and enjoy kiteboarding’s amazing connection with the wind and water. If that’s you, the Misfit is your board. The Misfit features an all-around shape and rocker profile designed for a variety of conditions rather than specialized performance. It’s the perfect choice for entry-level riders who want a board they can progress with but won’t outgrow, or for experienced kiters who don’t plan on specializing in a specific discipline of the sport.

  • Carbon Bedrock inserts: 
    One of many Slingshot innovations, our carbon-reinforced inserts have proven to be the lightest, strongest and most flexible we’ve seen yet. These new inserts, introduced on our 2017 lineup, reduce overall board weight, increase pull strength and allow for a more consistent flex under foot.
    Base Layups:
    A proper base thickness is an important detail in selecting the board that’s best for you, and we offer something for everyone in our 2018 lineup. A thick layup will give more durability for kickers, sliders, rails and other hard objects, while a thinner layup means less overall weight.

    Construction:
    Slingshot twin tips are hand crafted out of all wood cores. We use sustainably grown Paulownia, which gives the lively, springy character that Slingshot boards are famous for. Our vertically laminated construction harnesses the collect strength of the wood’s grain and provides strength, durability and consistent flex over the life of the board.
    As an added layer of protection, we finish every board with a full urethane rail to protect from inevitable mishaps and impacts with hard objects. We’ve added vibrant urethan colors give the visual pop distinct to Slingshot.
  • Air Core:
    The new Misfit Air Core features large sections of thermally welded Koroyd in the tip, tail, and lengthwise underfoot. The result: a lighter, more responsive board with the same strength and flex as a full wood core.
