SLINGSHOT BUTTER BAR XR 52″ 2017
The Butter Bar XR is an upgraded version of the Cobra Cat that features a high-tech carbon matrix overlay and stringer that yields added stiffness and strength and gives the board an unbelievable visual appeal. This is gorgeous board puts others to shame, plain and simple. The Butter Bar is a pin-tail, skim-style board that appeals to riders of all ability levels. The Butter Bar’s low volume makes it the easiest board in our lineup to submerge, which helps when learning or teaching deep-water starts. Once it is up and cruising, the board has a fast glide speed and great stability, which maximizes the riders chance of surfing solo (without the aid of a rope). For more advanced riders, the Butter Bar is an excellent board for learning spins, shuvits and skate-style tricks and is an excellent option on smaller size waves when other boards lose their luster.

Classic pintail skimboard shape:
The Butter Bar XR features a wide midsection, tapered tip and tail and a classic skimboard pin tail. It’s fast and agile, with a washy feel that’s perfect for practicing spins, shuvits and other skate-inspired tricks.
2” G10 tri-fin setup:
Three 2” screw-on fins provide the perfect balance of freedom and grip. Not too loose, not too grippy; the Butter Bar is right in the middle, just the way you want a skim to feel.
Mild nose rocker:
Not your flat plywood skim, the Butter Bar XR features a noticeable nose rocker that helps prevent pearling and allows riders sit deeper in the pocket without having to worry about nose-diving.
