The new Misfit is the perfect board for those riders that demand controlled progressive flex and top-level performance in a wide range of conditions. It is a great machine for intermediate riders looking to progress or for advanced ones that want to ride at their full potential.

The board features a rounder, user friendly outline which prevents spray and allows the rider to cut through the chop without effort. This outline also provides excellent planing and upwind performance. The Misfit packs some amazing pop and can perform technical tricks with ease.

An elliptical concave bottom shape provides very good edge to edge response and improves stability. Double V channels moulded in the tip core add extra stability and a cleaner release. A special step-down rail provides excellent edge control and makes the board very stable and controllable in chop. The moderate flex makes it very lively and agile and assures a comfortable drive at all times.

Slingshot has crafted the Misfit using an Atomic full wood core which provides this optimal flex and makes the board quick to respond. Additional resin-x layups and a Fusion sidewall make the board light and very durable. The board is equipped with the new Fastrack binding system which offers multiple stance options and assures a superior connection between rider and deck.
