SMALL TO MEDIUM WAVES / STRAPLESS FREESTYLE
Duotone's compact shape board, now in the all-new ground-breaking D/LAB construction, perfect for shredding small to medium waves and strapless freestyle.
Includes: board, fins, and hardware
It’s the brand new 2022 Whip shape, but in Duotone's premium D/LAB construction that brings another level of performance and durability. The key feature of the new D/Lab construction is the new Reflex Memory Foam Shock Absorber on the deck of the board, making D/Lab boards feel incredibly more responsive on the water, even compared to SLS boards. Notably lighter than Duotone's Cork Shock Absorber, the RMF also boasts key technical benefits including the magical property of memory. If you land hard from your freestyle tricks and put a small dent in the deck, it will over time gradually push the dent out to its original shape and your board will stay looking like new for longer. Additionally, the superior vibration damping of the RMF makes it feel as if you’re riding on a cushion of air by reducing the high frequency chatter through the chop. This incredibly smooth ride inspires confidence in your riding when attacking the lip and landing airs because you know your board will absorb the shock and deliver top notch performance without sacrificing durability. The all-new Whip D/LAB is a great board for pushing the progression of all your freestyle tricks and one of Duotone's team’s most highly regarded performance surfboards that is guaranteed to put you in all the right places on the wave from tight in the pocket to above the lip and into big open faced carves in small to medium waves. There's lots to love about this board - incredibly light, very durable and capable of excelling in waves and in the air. All you have to do is jump on board and reap the rewards!

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.
RMF SHOCK ABSORBER
Duotone's new RMF (Reflex Memory Foam) Shock Absorber in combination with the Innegra Shield offers decisive technical advantages over the Cork Shock Absorber found in Duotone's 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 Duotone's World Champions in any kind of surf.
Grab Rails for easier freestyle tricks, durability and comfortable general riding.
Using bamboo in Duotone's surf boards, they take full advantage of the dynamic qualities of this natural product. Optimized layers and the mix with composite materials help them to construct powerful, agile and versatile surf boards that come with a unique flex – responsive flex!
LIGHT TEAM CONSTRUCTION
Duotone is 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 they 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!
All boards now come with Duotone's 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 Duotone's high quality composite fins or any stock after market Futures brand fin. Easy to install and uninstall even with Sand and Salt.
