Slingshot Says:

New for 2015, the Misfit now features precision laser cut NACA Duct channels. The Misfit has raised the bar again for performance freeriding with its proven versatile shape and Slingshot’s legendary construction. Engineered to provide a consistent rider controlled flex and pop, the Misfit will satisfy the needs of any rider.

With the addition of our precision laser cut NACA Duct channels, we took freeride performance to a whole new level. Like a vacuum, the NACA Duct channels water from the middle of the board to the tip. The directed water accelerates through the channel and increases the board speed and grip to the water. The benefits to the rider are increased edge control and reduced drag through the water. Hand built in our U.S.A. factory, the Misfit features the highest-quality and greenest materials available on the planet.

Our Testers Say:

“Flat rocker, fun fast board that goes upwind really well. The four-way adjustable straps are great for a custom fit,” Jason Kane.

“Great, durable board for a beginner to intermediate rider in flatter water,” John Steimle.

“Excellent edge control with very good upwind ability; this was a great all around board that was easy to control even when I was overpowered,” Marko Bartscherer.

Meet the 2015 TKB Test Team

TKB Says:

The Misfit is back with Slingshot’s new DURA-base bottom and new NACA Duct channels in the tip, which makes for a fast ride through the water with really good grip and control. The Misfit features a track system to suit a wide range of finely tuned stance widths as well as a large amount of adjustment for stance duck. Testers gave the Misfit high praise for its overall fast speed, excellent grip with good load and pop, and recommend this board for all around freeride and big air freestyle. The Misfit comes with the new Dually pad and straps system, which is easy to assemble and features a medium density footpad with straps that offer four Velcro adjustments to get the strap perfectly suited to your foot. The heel area features solid texture with a substantial ridge under the toe to give you a locked in feel.
