• Classic short board shape for dedicated surfers

• Ride fast, carve hard, pull into steep waves
• More snap, more pivot w/ rounded squash tail
• Best option for hard-charging surfer
The Tyrant is a classic short board profile designed for hard-charging, down-the-line performance, big wave conditions, high speeds and high-powered locked-in carving. Although a solid all-around short board shape, the Tyrant excels with aggressive riders who can take full advantage of its slender profile, snappy turns and high-speed capabilities. The Tyrant features a rocker designed for high-performance wave riding and a rounded squash tail that yields snap off the lip and locked-in bottom turns. Additional rear footstrap inserts have been added farther back, directly over the back fin to maximize these characteristics for strapped-in riders.
Tyrant rider profile:
You’ll love the Tyrant if you want a surfboard that excels in a variety of wind and wave conditions, with high-performance down-the-line riding for an aggressive, lip-slashing style.
FCSll fin system
The 2017 Tyrant comes equipped with the FCSll Reactor fin setup. This simple and secure system means you can click your fins in and out in one quick step, eliminating the need for easy-to-lose tools and fin keys.
The Tyrant's FCSll fin boxes feature screw holes that allow for mounting of standard keyed fins. All of Slingshot's 2017 surfboards feature a three-fin configuration, which provides the ideal balance between speed, traction and agility.
Slingshot surfboards feature an extra foot strap insert located far back on the tail of the board. This insert allows riders who use straps to adjust their weight directly over the rear fins for added control and leverage when carving faces and slashing turns.
