Only 75 Super Limited Edition Black Flag Whips were produced for the world wide distribution. A Collector's Surfboard that will only go up in value.Only 75 autographed and numbered Super Limited Edition Black Flag Whips were produced for the world wide distribution. The Limited Edition Black Flag Whip is hand signed and numbered by Kelly on the foam and is sure to be an instant collector board. These Limited Edition Black Flag Whips feature Kelly's 2010 artwork. Rosie Young designed the artwork and it was printed on fiberglass. This is the same design he had on his Bells beach winning board in 2010. (see photos below) About Channel Islands Black Flag 6'0 Surfboard -BF-259196 in EPS/Sand. Kelly's latest edition to his small wave arsenal is now available as the Black Flag Whip.
This is the Black Flag Whip with a half moon tail but now featuring a triplane hull bottom which adds lift thus creating a very fast and loose board. Kelly finds the board is fast and has an even more responsive feel than the previous single concave version.A double concave deck gets your feet closer to the water line. See photo before graphics were added to better see the concave's (from Channel Islands web site). They have also added carbon fiber strips on the bottom stretching from the nose to the leading fins.
Stopping the carbon fiber near the leading fins concentrates the flex in the tail, thus providing more spring out of turns. The half moon tail breaks up the rail line and gives the board more release out of the top of the wave. Dimensions: Length: 6' 0" Width: 19 1/4" Thickness: 2 3/8 Volume 28.3 L Fins System: FCS K2.1 Tri-Fin set with Tri-Fin case.
This board is new, never been waxed and has never touched the water. I decided to keep a 5' 10 for myself and I love it. I have people admiring it every time I go surfing. Such a unique board with beautiful graphics and....... Certain to be a collectors most wanted board with only 75 made.
