Slingshot T-Rex Kite Surfboard 2014
The 2014 T-REX was developed for a new breed of riders focusing on aerial tricks and fun, poppy changes in direction.
Comes with Board, Fins, Pads and Straps
Sizes: 5'2", 5'4", 5'6"
This unique, progressive shape is trending in the surf industry with the top pro riders. Patrick Rebstock prefers this next generation surf shape because it makes it easier to spin and flip tricks with less swing weight and has a tight precise feel to blast upwind.
Everyday riders will love the shape because it makes it easier to catch waves by reducing the tendency of perling as you drop into your line. Once you’re in the wave, the aggressive 5 fin setup gives you more drive and acceleration without working as hard as a quad or tri fin setup. This unique setup also gives you the option of configuring the fins how you want. Ride it as a tri for a more free, skate feel or as a quad if you’re looking to track more.
The new T-REX is the perfect travel board. The shorter sizes make it easy to take with you to your favorite wave destination and fits in a wider variety of travel bags. Each of the sizes ride like a larger board without the weight and hassle. The single concave makes the board ride super precise, but forgiving for all levels of rider. The tail shape allows for sharp carving in any type of condition.
Our entire line of surf boards features art by progressive surfer and artist Phil Goodrich.

WVX SURF CONSTRUCTION
WVX (BAMBOO VENEER + FLUID X) WVX construction is built with layers of bamboo wood, resin and weaved lightweight fiberglass combined with a strong EPS core. During each layering step vacuum bagging techniques are used to enhance the bonding strength. Proprietary to Slingshot, this construction controls the durability and flex of the board. The result is a proven lightweight, impact resistant board. A final layer of glass provides the highest fit and finish of any kite surfboard on the market. WVX construction features our Fluid X Vibration Dampening System for an unrivaled smooth ride. These lightweight boards are the next step in the evolution of kite surfboards that deliver the perfect balance between performance and durability with elegant styling.
FEATURING FLUID X - VIBRATION DAMPENING SYSTEM. Fluid X was born from the ski and snowboard industry. It made sense to look toward progressive snowsports technology to provide state of the art dampening control to reduce vibration and create a clean and smooth feel throughout all our high performance boards. Fluid X also provides an anti-torsion property that runs from tip to tail and it’s visco-elastic stringer improves the dynamic behavior of the core construction that allows more flex, more response and the smoothest feel unlike anything you’ve experienced on a kite surfboard. With Fluid X, we finally manage to give our boards a Polyester feel with the durability of an epoxy lay up.
