North Whip 2014
The Whip is our high volume euro wave shredder, designed for those days when the waves aren't packing much punch and you still want to have a good session. It is also the new school wave freestyle board of choice among the NKB pro team too.
A thruster set up with a wider double winger diamond tail combine with more volume to get this board up and going really early. The Whip is fast, lively and a whole heap of fun to ride no matter what the waves are doing..
Sky Solbach: "The 2014 model is actually based on a 5'8" I made for NKB legend Jaime Herraiz last winter. He was looking for a short, wide board he could use to kite and surf at home in small waves in Tarifa, Spain.
Using the 2013 Whip as a base model, I bumped up the overall width by 1/4" and added a big single winger to pull in the tail for added maneuverability. Jaime was really pumped on the board and ended up liking it a lot as a thruster.
It's much looser and livelier than the 2013 Whip and is aimed at generating speed and performing well in small, gutless waves. This thing absolutely flies and is great for doing strapless airs."
