The Misfit has always been a staple in the formidable Slingshot twin-tip lineup and with new refinements in construction and tip and rail design, this year’s model promises more pop for freestyle and smoother riding for heightened crossover performance. The 142 size is perfect for larger riders or anyone that wants to throw down some unhooked style in lighter winds. The parallel outline and wide tips deliver good amounts of pop. With its tunnel concave the Misfit is also smooth and manageable through chop and the rail grips well allowing the Misfit to push upwind with ease. This board is easy to ride and becomes comfortable instantly. It has plenty of access to freestyle pop for the more advanced riders. The Misfit is also a great choice for the intermediate rider that wants a board to advance. It won’t let you down as skills improve.
Footbed and Strap System: Slingshot Misfit Strap and Pad System
Slingshot footbeds are dual-density foam, with well cushioned heel and good toe grips. Unlike some systems, the Slingshot foot strap is attached to the footbed through a pin system and then the footbed is attached directly to the board with four bolts. This attachment method makes it much easier to attach the beds to the board than some other competing designs. Slingshot’s strap is adjustable with streamlined lace system as opposed to the traditional Velcro.
