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 board-walking 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.
