Slingshot Says:

The Misfit continues to deliver controlled progressive flex and top-level performance better than ever. Our full wood core absorbs and releases energy, adding a lively and responsive feel to the riding experience.

Engineered to take your skills to the next level, the 2014 Misfit provides a more dynamic feel than a traditional molded-foam board and provides smooth riding through chop without kicking spray in your face. The Misfit’s proven, user-friendly outline offers exceptional upwind drive and killer load-and-pop capability. A short and effective edge makes for lightning-quick hookup and ultimate edge control in the harshest of conditions.

Our Testers Say:

“Great all around board to progress on that you won’t soon outgrow,” Cherie Costello.

“Great turning and pop – I would love to play with this board in flat water,” Frank Russo.

“Moderate amount of rocker, smooth ride, nice for jumping,” Evangeline Amores.

Meet the 2014 TKB Test Team.

TKB Says:

The 2014 Misfit is built in the USA and features a full wood core, slight bottom concave and single channel at the tip, moderate outline, and Slingshot’s Fastrack which offers riders a huge amount of stance width adjustment and plenty of options for setting duck. Testers praised the Misfit for its ability to load up the wood core for impressive pop on huge boosting airs as well as the board’s fast feel and ability to rocket upwind. Overall, the Misfit earned solid praise and testers recommended this board for all levels of freeride and big air freestyle.

Our test boards were shipped with Slingshot’s Bolt-Ons straps and pad system. The straps slip through the pad base for a simple and easy installation with a single Velcro strap for adjustment. Testers found the medium density pads comfortable while delivering a solid balance between control and plushness. Testers found the straps easy to adjust but our female testers commented that they wished the straps would adjust smaller for petite feet.
