The new 2103 Tyrant WVX is the perfect choice for the seasoned traveler who needs an all-in-one board to surf and kite in various wind and wave conditions. The board offers maximum speed and control and can suit virtually any rider, regardless of his skills.

The compact shape makes it very agile, yet very stable and easy to handle. The Tyrant can handle small to big surf with ease. The pulled in squash tail assures smooth and quick turns and provides a precise control. It also makes the board forgiving in rougher conditions.

A deep single to double concave bottom design adds stability and generates a smooth drive. The board is equipped with a new insert layout for easier strap installation. It comes with pre-installed EVA Surf Pads and Updated Surf Straps. The Tyrant uses a thruster fin setup which provide grip and speed whenever needed. Slingshot has crafted the Tyrant using the WVX technology.

This technology is based on a bamboo layer, resin and lightweight fiberglass structure plus an EPS core structure and incorporates the Fluid X Vibration Dampening System which assures a smooth ride. The Fluid X system reduces vibrations and also prevents torsion and assures superior flex and control.
