SMALL TO MEDIUM WAVES/STRAPLESS FREESTYLE

Are you looking for the ultimate small to medium-sized wave board that can also perform all the latest freestyle tricks with ease? The all-new Whip SLS, Strong Light Superior, has you covered!

Includes: board, fins, and hardware

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.

Tech Features

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.

 

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.

 

RESPONSIVE FLEX
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 Duotone 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!

 

MULTIBOX
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.
