Cousin to the Tyrant but with a progressive snub-nose shape to reduce front-end size and weight, the Screamer is a playful and agile board that will appeal to riders of all disciplines. Its pulled-in thumb tail and three-fin setup provide solid all-around performance and control at speed for traditional wave riding, while its shorter length and unique T-Rex nose profile makes strapless airs, tricks and strapped-in boosting considerably easier than with longer, more traditional shapes. The Screamer is offered in 5’2”, 5’4” and 5’6” lengths and features a parallel rail outline and single-concave rocker. This makes for a compact and highly maneuverable ride that can handle any conditions you throw at it.
Screamer rider profile:
You’ll love the Screamer if you’re among the new-era of kiters that wants both solid wave performance and progressive freestyle capabilities out of the same surfboard. The board’s parallel rail outline, “pulled-in” thumb tail and single-concave rocker make it a fast, stable and slashy choice for all-around wave riding.
FCSll fin system
The 2017 Screamer 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 Screamer'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.

Why pay for something if you’re not going to use it? For 2017, Slingshot has decided to sell surf straps separately instead of including them with the purchase of every surfboard. Boards have been reduced in price to account for this, so the cost will be comparable for riders who want both, and cheaper for riders who don’t care for straps.
