What we like:
This board feels significantly thinner than most other kite or surfboards available. Slingshot took the template from Ben Wilson Pro Model and tuned it up for solid waves. This is a great board to ride at the Lighthouse in Cape Hatteras when conditions get REAL.
What we don’t like:
This board needs performance fins and it ships with basic plastic fins. We would never recommend that you use plastic fins when going mach 10 or trying to get barreled. (View the full range of FCS fin upgrades here.)
Why you want the Tyrant:
We all dream of kitesurfing great waves and at some point you are going to get them. Even if its once every few years when you take a kite vacation you are still going to need a board that can cope with steep and deep. That’s when you will be glad to have the Tyrant in your quiver.
