Key Features

Duotone Whip D/LAB

High-Performance small wave/freestyle board

The unique shape of the Whip D/LAB makes it the perfect board for the rider who likes to throw down the latest tricks as much as they want to carve up the waves.

Snappy Top Turns

The compact shape enables you to turn incredibly tightly in the pocket; vertical top to bottom turns are the speciality of the Whip D/LAB.

Incredible Speed Generation

The rocker line and channel on the board’s base combine to offer incredible speed, both on the wave and when riding on the flat; this is great for linking turns, catching fast waves, and popping huge tricks.

Reflex Memory Foam Shock Absorber

The Reflex Memory Foam Shock Absorber offers superior comfort in choppy conditions. When landing aerials, it also has a memory, which means small heel dents you create are minimized, making the board look better for longer.

Innegra Shield

The Innegra Shield completely wraps around the whole board; this provides unrivalled protection from everyday knocks and scrapes and keeps your board looking fresh.

Details

Duotone Whip D/LAB

The Whip D/LAB is available now in even four sizes in our new ultimate D/LAB construction. The Whip D/LAB is a small to medium wave and strapless freestyle machine. Generous nose rocker, high-performance rails and a "wide bump-squash" tail design make the Whip D/LAB quick and agile when transitioning rail to rail, very reactive and able to operate in a tight transition in small waves for radical turns. The compact shape makes the Whip D/LAB the ideal board for strapless freestyle pros and seasoned surfers. The Whip D/LAB 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. Take your Whip to the next level with the most technologically advanced construction we offer; go Whip D/LAB this year, you won’t regret it!



Tech Features

RMF Shock Absorber

Our new RMF (Reflex Memory Foam) Shock Absorber in combination with the Innegra Shield offers decisive technical advantages over the Cork Shock Absorber found in our SLS range. First, it is lighter, without affecting the overall strength of the board. Second, it has memory; if you put a small heel dent in the board, the foam will push the dent out over time, giving you a lighter board that stays looking fresh for longer. D/LAB boards feel more responsive on the water thanks to the reduced weight and the remarkable damping effect that drastically reduces high frequency vibrations, giving these boards a smooth and forgiving feel to inspire your confidence when attacking the lip and landing huge airs. The choice of our World Champions in any kind of surf.

 


Grab Rails

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



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!



Multibox 

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. 

 

Innegra SLS surfboard

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.

Light 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!
