Over the years, more traveling pro surfers have come to us for the Whiplash than anyother model. Built for precision high speed surfing. Low volume rails, and vee deck with a narrow nose and tail block combine with an aggressive rail rocker and deep concaves to keep it moving. The Whiplash is the most sensitive andresponsive board we offer. Not recommended for below average surfers or for use in sloppy surf. This board performs best in the pocket of curvy waves of any size. The board of choice for fast snappy surfers like Chris “Davo” Davidson, Andrew Doheny and Luke Davis. In 2010, Carissa Moore used an updated Whiplash to win two WT events (so far) and the US Open of Surfing.
HYDROFLEX SUPERCHARGER XXX
These boards were made exclusively for REAL and differ from the standard SuperCharger construction in the following way:
Standard SuperCharger construction has 1 layer of 4oz Hydroflex fiberglass cloth on the bottom and 2 layers of 4oz Hydroflex fiberglass cloth on the deck. XXX SuperCharger construction has 1 layer of 6oz Hydroflex fiberglass cloth on the bottom and 2 layers of 6oz Hydroflex fiberglass cloth on the deck.
XXX SuperCharger construction is even more durable than standard SuperCharger construction. So rather than lasting 3x longer than PU/Poly for normal surfing use, it will last even longer. Even though XXX has way more cloth (and you think it would be heavy) it's still one of the lightest boards in the loft. Mental.
This is also the SAME construction that Patrick Rebstock is using on all of his custom kitesurf boards, so this board is also well suited for strapless kitesurfing and the abuse that comes from it. Pat's recommendation is to pump the board up rock solid, 7-9psi is the way he likes them and this makes them more durable too against heel dents.
One other cool thing to mention is that even if this board get's all dented up, you can remove the dents by pressurizing the board to 9PSI and leaving it overnight. All the dents will be gone in the morning.
*The original Hydroflex pump is equipped with a custom pressure gauge and is included with the board for no extra charge.
