Hi guys,

Has anyone given the 2014 Slingshot T-Rex a go?

Looks like a sick little board.

Cheers

Looks like a really crappy copy of a Tomo shape to me... totally missing all aspects of what makes the Tomo shape a sick board. Same can be said for the LF version. You can't just take the outline without all the other aspects. It would be like taking the outline of a wakeboard but then making it dead flat and expecting it to ride the same as he one you copied...

p.s. Even the Firewire one (that Tomo licensed himself) isn't really the same thing in my opinion.

Sir Rowdy, what is the Tomo?

I am just after a surf style board I can still bust some airs on.

cheers

I own a t-rex, and at 100kg, i am pretty sure i would snap it in half with a heavy landing.
My nugget on the other hand has been abused by bad numerous bad landings.
