Ask anyone who’s been on the Tyrant, it’s the perfect balance of incredible high performance and long lasting durability.
It’s responsive and lively core has a deep single to double concave and a “pulled in” squash tail that makes the Tyrant sharp and more forgiving in all surf and wind conditions. The tri-fin setup offers plenty of drive and great release off the wave for strapless air. This smooth-riding, stable board offers incredible performance to keep experienced kitesurfers ripping while being forgiving enough for first-time surfboard riders.

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.
