Awesome fun board by Daz from South Australia

5

Pros

  • light feel
  • easy strapless riding
  • feels like a twin tip in size but trucks upwind
  • small but upwind is easy
  • turns and whips easy in fun conditions

Cons

  • heavy waves & extreme wind chop gets flightly

Best use

  • 80% of the conditions, fun small waves
  • freestyle fun practice
  • regular beach breaks for regular riders
  • strapped or strappless freak tricks

Comment

This board will cover you for all your regular beach action, fun and whippy, turns fast, rips in small to medium surf in fun wind, does not have a craving turn like a Kontact or proseries, but thats normally only a small portion of action for most peeps


Bottom line

The future is pointless by Trinks from Barwon Heads, Australia

5

Pros

  • Fits in my car but rides longer
  • Less nose makes jumps easier
  • Concave smothes out chop
  • Fast and controlled
  • Rockets back up wind via straight rails
  • Just the right volume for drift and float
  • Nice carving feel. Really holds the edge.

Cons

  • Swallow tails alway get damaged by ground surface
  • Red attracts sharks
  • Is it strong enough?

Best use

  • Blown out wave that we kitesurf 90% of the time

Comment

2015 Whip 5'2"
Moved from my custom 5'6" thruster.
Love the new shape. It makes sense and works on the water. You notice it in the Air and in the car! At 80kgs I was worried that the smallest model would float me but it has all the volume I need. The straight rails rocket back upwind and the flat rocker give me all the light wind performance of my skim board.
Jumps have been super fun and the carves follow a nice arc.
I am really happy with the whip and just hope it lasts. Swallow tails always take a beating.


Bottom line
