Slingshot Gnarwhal XR - 2020

  • Slingshot gives you a top quality board that will last and for a more affordable price! With their wide weight ranges, they are optimal boards for those looking to buy only one board for the boat. Made with FCS II fins, it is super easy to pop out and go from 4 to 2 fin with no tools needed

    Still the same great go to board for big airs and tricks but with a sweet added inlaid carbon weave for additional strength, stiffness, and dockside appeal!

    The board of choice for progressive and aggressive riding, big wakes, big airs and all around slashing. A short nose and fat tail give the Gnarwhal tons of surface area and lift for its short length, and makes it a master at generating speed and popping off the top of the lip. FCS II toolless fin boxes are installed in a quad configuration and can be customized down to a twin fin in a matter of seconds.

    Why you’ll LOVE the GNARWHAL:
    The best board in the Slingshot lineup for working the lip of the wave, generating speed, popping airs, and discovering your progressive surf style.
  • FCS II fin technology
    FCSII fin technology allows you to configure your fins on the fly without the use of a tool

    Choose from multiple fin configurations
    Including thruster, quad, twin and single fin (depending on board model). FCS II boxes are compatible with all FCS fins allowing you to customize your ride however you like.

    Flat nose / fat tail progressive surf shape
    Allows our designers to pack for more surface area and volume into a shorter length board that fits easily into the pocket. This additional surface area is great for larger surfers or those looking for more “punch” off the lip.

    Double concave hull
    The double concave hull helps create traction without sacrificing speed, and also helps the board rock effortlessly from rail to rail.

    Fast rocker line
    The key to success when surfing small waves and being able to let go of the rope behind the boat.

    EVA deck pad
    Smooth to the touch and GRIPPY WHEN WET, our new EVA deck pads are not too soft and not too firm. Just the way we like it.

    Dual cupped rail channels
    Located on the toe and heel rails of the boards, these channels give the board additional “bite” when digging into the face of the wave. They feel almost like a small cheater fin on the edge that helps keep you on the sweet spot of the wave and prevents slip outs.

    Center Spine
    Helps in the transition from toe to heel edge when rocking and rolling on the wave.

    Aggressive nose rocker
    A larger scoop at the nose of the board allows surfers to dig deeper and carve harder with less concern of burying the nose.
