2009 Slingshot Surfboards range

The bottom of the SRT has a flat entry rocker, increased tail kick and a slight single concave in front. The outline is a “no nose” which means that the wide point of the board is pulled back ,matched with low round rails and a tail that is then pulled into a tight round thumb. Light and lively defines the 2009 SRT Quad!
