2018 Slingshot Angry Swallow Kite Surfboard
Do you listen to heavy metal? Do you find yourself flying into fits of rage at any given moment? Do you ride in lightwind conditions? If any of the above apply to you, the Angry Swallow is a perfect fit for your needs. This board is the most buoyant in the Slingshot lineup and is shaped to allow easy planing and ability to upwind, so if you’re riding in less-than-optimal conditions, are just starting out, or need something to round out the bottom end of your board quiver, the Angry Swallow is an amazing option. The latest iteration features an updated tail shape to allow for better pivot on the board, awesome while you’re learning the art of the jibe.
See what Slingshot has to say about the 2018 Angry Swallow
An all-around board loved for its ability to make mushy waves and marginal wind still worth a beer afterward, the Angry Swallow excels where other boards fall short. It’s based on Slingshot’s snub-nosed T-Rex profile, which reduces front-end swing weight and gives the feeling of a full-volume board in a shorter, more maneuverable package. The Angry Swallow features a parallel rail outline, which adds surface area for better performance in marginal conditions. An updated swallow tail shape gives the board tighter and snappier turns and helps it stay in front of mushy waves. As the highest volume board in our lineup (relative to length), the Angry Swallow provides added stability, wind range, upwind ability and, for advanced riders, stability for progressive freestyle. Large carbon stringer patches on the top and bottom give the board strength where it’s needed while keeping overall weight down. Additional carbon on the tail prevents edge cracking from heel impact.
