Brand: Slingshot


  • 6’2”


“The 6’2” Slingshot Squash Tail is the ideal crossover board for surfers who kite.” Chief Designer Tony Logosz.

The SST, designed by John Doyle, is made for the advanced surfer who wants to kitesurf. Because of its unique shape and size the SST provides excellent planeability, glide and drive in the waves.

The optimal way to enjoy this board is to use the kite to “tow” into a wave then completely depower the kite and use your body and board to surf the wave and carry you down the line. The broader shape of the tail area results in precision stability and control.

The SST’s performance shines when ridden with or without straps. The SST is comparable to a paddle board and can be ridden as a true surfboard. The 6’2” size makes it the only board you need to carry on a kiteboarding/surfing trip.

The SST, high performance kitesurfing.
