Details

Duotone Whip SLS

For many years the Whip has been at the pinnacle of the compact shaped surfboard market. The advantages this style offers are numerous, the small shape makes it easy to turn the board aggressively in the pocket, it's perfect for the latest freestyle tricks, and it makes travel a breeze. This year the Whip SLS got a significant make-over; the goal was to bring this already cutting-edge board right up to date with the latest hydrodynamic shape. The board features increased rocker, a slightly narrower nose outline, lower, rounder rails and a new "wide bump-squash" tail design. The new Whip SLS is quicker and more agile when transitioning from rail to rail, much more reactive and also able to operate in a tighter transition in small waves. The compact shape makes the Whip SLS the ideal board for strapless freestyle pros and seasoned surfers. The Whip SLS is an extremely well-balanced board with incredible handling, but still provides explosive snap off the top with the ability to turn in a very tight radius on steep sections. The Whip SLS isn't defined by the conditions of the day or a particular style of riding; it can handle it all and take you to incredible heights; all you need to do is jump on board.

Cork Shock Absorber 2.0

Cork offers excellent absorption characteristics and reforms entirely without leaving any visible dents in contrast to PVC. Therefore, it is applied as a damper in the heel area of the surfboards.

Grab Rails

Grab Rails for easier freestyle tricks, durability and comfortable general riding.

Innegra is the reason for the predictable feel of a polyurethane surfboard, combined with liveliness, durability, dent resistance and incredible light weight. The weight reduction was achieved by replacing fiberglass with Innegra.

All boards now come with our own Futures Fins compatible fin boxes. Two side set screws and no rear tab allow for a wider tolerance of fin fitting and ensure a perfect and tight fit every time whether you’re using our high quality composite fins or any stock after market Futures brand fin. Easy to install and uninstall even with Sand and Salt.

Light Team Construction
Light Team ConstructionLight Team Construction

We are using a more labor intensive, multi-step vacuum bag process that yields a super strong, lightweight board with a custom, hand sanded finish. The most substantial change to the light team construction, is that we no longer use a full bamboo sandwich. The cork shock absorber, which used to be concealed under the bamboo sandwich, is now clearly visible under the deck skin and allows the deck to flex and absorb shock like a custom PU board with minimal to no heel denting, thanks to the underlying reinforcements and the remarkable memory properties of cork. Pure surf board feel in an ultra light but durable construction!

Responsive Flex

Using bamboo in our surf boards, we take full advantage of the dynamic qualities of this natural product. Optimized layers and the mix with composite materials help us to construct powerful, agile and versatile surf boards that come with a unique flex – responsive flex!

True Quotes

Duotone Whip SLS

James Carew
“The Whip SLS is a small wave beast, some small adjustments to the shape have made the board crazy good. If the waves are terrible, you can still shred, any wave and this board eats it up.”
James Carew
“If I had to choose only one board from the Duotone range, I’d go for the Whip. Why? Because it’s great for pretty much any kind of conditions and it’s amazing for strapless freestyle.”
