The Whip 44 is a good mix of the 41’s nimbleness and the 47’s supreme standing platform, for those who have a balanced style comprised of a mixture of boardwalking and snappy flip tricks. The moderate size of the 44 gives you a few extra inches of standing platform to do a few more cross-steps before reaching the end of the board. This also allows you to do more hops and bigger pirouettes without worrying about falling onto the next kicktail. The slightly larger size allows you to do all the same no-complys, shuv-its and 180s as you can on the 41, while being a little flashier. If you want to do a little bit of both, this is the one.
The Whip 44 is designed to be stood on by anyone from 130-200 pounds. If you weigh more; do not worry. The bamboo/fiberglass construction will keep your board lively for all the moves you can throw at it. You can still do your thing on the board, but upon landing tricks, the board may scrape the ground.
Missionary Construction – The deck is laminated using a custom blend of Vertically Laminated Bamboo and Triaxial Fiberglass
Triaxial Fiberglass – Reinforces the bamboo and creates a board that is extremely light, durable, that will never sag or loose life. Fiberglass construction gives the kicktails tons of pop, making freestyle moves easy because the board will react to your every command.
Vert-Lam Bamboo Core –Bamboo is stronger than steel yet lighter than traditional hardwoods.
Sublimated Artwork – Scratch-resistant ink is tattooed into the deck on both sides!
Round Edges – Edges are rounded to prevent damage to the deck and the rider.
Medium Firm Flex– Made for riders between 130lb and 220lbs.
Twin Shape – Ride it anyway you want!
Rocker – Pre-loads your legs for easier turning.
Micro Drop Platform – Very subtle platform drops from Zero Degree mounting into the rockered platform. Provides easy footing reference to know where your feet are but won’t get in the way of cross steps or any other moves.
3D WheelWells– We mill out layers of the core before pressing and then press the wheelwells into the bottom sheet giving your board extra durability, superior water protection and long life.
Leverage Concave – Concave that has a narrow flat center and turns up at the ball of your toes in an even linear lever concave.
Universal Variable Top Mounting – Lets you pick the wheelbase that works best for you and your truck/wheel setup. Not all trucks have the same design. Multiple wheelbases allow you to customize your placement to optimize stability, turning and getting the perfect amount of pop from the tail.
Bee Orange Finish – Smells good, taste great, and seals and protects your board without harmful chemicals.
