Slingshot GNARWHAL XR 2020
The board of choice for progressive and aggressive riding, big wakes, big airs and all-around slashing. A short nose and fat tail give the Gnarwhal XR tons of surface area and lift for its length, and makes it a master at generating speed and popping off the top of the lip. FCS II tool-less fin boxes are installed in a quad configuration and can be customized down to a twin fin in a matter of seconds.

WHY YOU'LL LOVE THE GNARWHAL XR WAKE SURFER
The best board in our lineup for working the lip of the wave, generating speed, popping airs, and discovering your progressive surf style.
CARBON MATRIX OVERLAY
Increases board strength in key locations allowing for a lighter - weight construction style with a classy upgraded surf flare.
FCS II FIN TECHNOLOGY
FCSII fin technology allows you to configure your fins on the fly without the use of a tool- Choose from multiple fin configurations including thruster, quad, twin and single fin (depending on board model). FCS II boxes are compatible with all FCS fins allowing you to customize your ride however you like.
FLAT NOSE / FAT TAIL PROGRESSIVE SURF SHAPE
Allows our designers to pack for more surface area and volume into a shorter length board that fits easily into the pocket. This additional surface area is great for larger surfers or those looking for more “punch” off the lip.
DOUBLE CONCAVE HULL
The double concave hull helps create traction without sacrificing speed, and also helps the board rock effortlessly from rail to rail.
DUAL CUPPED RAIL CHANNELS
Located on the toe and heel rails of the boards, these channels give the board additional “bite” when digging into the face of the wave. They feel almost like a small cheater fin on the edge that helps keep you on the sweet spot of the wave and prevents slip-outs.
EVA DECK PAD
Smooth to the touch and GRIPPY WHEN WET, our new EVA deck-pads are not too soft and not too firm. Just the way we like it.
AGGRESSIVE NOSE ROCKER
A larger scoop at the nose of the board allows surfers to dig deeper and carve harder with less concern of burying the nose.
