Item # FVS0607WHI
Channel Islands The Whip Surfboard. In landlocked neighborhoods a man’s “whip” is his customized ride, his prized mode of transportation. During the Europe leg in 2009, Kelly’s “Whip” for less than perfect surf was his 5’9” x 18 5/8” x 2’5/16” - one inch shorter than what he won Snapper and Bells on in 2008. This is Kelly and Al’s re-worked version of the Flyer, with a few secret changes. This board is faster and more forgiving. If you’re looking for a board that excels when your shortboard seems to bog, this is the board for you. Also available as a Quad. *Comes with FCS fin system*

  • Check out Video with Kelly Slater ripping it up on this board in the upper left of photo!

    everyday use by intermediate to expert surfers in knee to head high surf.

    Comments about CHANNEL ISLANDS THE WHIP:

    Bought a new Whip at the beginning of summer and surfed it for 4 months in solid Huntington and Newport Beach bowls. What a disappointment. At first I thought it was just me needing to figure out the board, after all it's a CI so you'd expect it to work. Then I had a pro friend try it out and his first impression was the same as mine. The board has so much mid/tail rocker that it lacks any sense of drive or direction. It's especially squirrely in good waves as it has a hard time carving a line. The flat, full entry and exaggerated tail rocker only worked in mushy surf, and even then just marginally. Leave this one for Kelly.
