The Slingshot Asylum 2020 is a dedicated freestyle board with pronounced rocker, aggressive channels, and explosive pop.
It is a performance board that suits intermediate to advanced riders committed to go big. So probably not you, but if you have a rough idea about how to go upwind, you would still like it a lot. If you’re still learning period instead, rather get yourself a board with a less pronounced rocker, as it will make learning upwind easier. Come back to buy the Asylum when you have learned how to load and pop bro!
Goes without saying that, if you are in to Wakestyle and unhoked tricks, you’re gonna appreciate this board much more than your girlfriend’s company.
It is the board used by the mighty Carlos Mario Bebe, even if we have to admit that the guy would ride better than you even on a picnic table with bindings mounted on top.
Those engineering fetishist working at Slingshot loaded this board with plenty of high-tech design features, adding to this year’s Asylum a tip-to-tail carbon stringer to its wood core, to increase dynamic flex and pop even more. If you’re used to the previous boards by Slingshot, be informed that in the last years they have become waaaaaaaaay lighter.Trust me dude!
