Angry Swallow characteristics:
The Angry Swallow is a board that shines in marginal wind and wave conditions, when more traditional shapes would leave you left behind by mushy waves, struggling to stay upwind or get out past the break. Based on Slingshot’s hybrid T-Rex profile, the Angry Swallow is the most buoyant board in our lineup, which creates a stable, yet snappy freestyle-friendly feel that only a board of its size and shape can provide. With the performance of a larger, full-volume board in a small package, this is an excellent choice for riders who frequent onshore wind, rough, choppy breaks or who want a solid all-around setup that can perform well in a wide variety of conditions. The Angry Swallow features a parallel rail outline, which adds surface area for better handling in mushy conditions. An aggressive winged diamond swallow tail gives the board tight, snappy turns and helps it keep up with marginal or mushy waves.

The 2017 Angry Swallow comes equipped with the FCSll Reactor fin setup. This simple and secure system means you can click your fins in and out in one quick step, eliminating the need for easy-to-lose tools and fin keys.
The Angry Swallow’s FCSll fin boxes feature screw holes that allow for mounting of standard keyed fins. All of Slingshot’s 2017 surfboards feature a three-fin configuration, which provides the ideal balance between speed, traction and agility.
Slingshot surfboards feature an extra foot strap insert located far back on the tail of the board. This insert allows riders who use straps to adjust their weight directly over the rear fins for added control and leverage when carving faces and slashing turns.
