The Whip is a unique board in the entire Zap Line featuring RidgeGrip™ technology. John Akerman asked for a place to grip the board while grabbing the rail and RidgeGrip™ was born. The midsection of the board has a 3/4” rail ridge that tapers down to a 5/8” core throughout the middle of the board. This creates ergonomic comfort hand grip and unique performance. The 5/8” core in the center maintains a very responsive and fast ride. The 3/4” rail provides extra floatation like a thicker core, giving the best of both worlds. The Whip is rounded out with our super tough GatorSkin™ glass.
