The Purpose:

The Switch Blade by DHD is a great one-board-in-your-quiver type of board.

With an angled fin system, this board gives you loose release while still allowing a generous speed through turns.

Rocker:

Flatter rocker and straighter plane shape for easy paddling and speed.

Rail:

Concave:

Is the switch blade the pistol whip renamed? What is different?

Hi Steve, the dimensions vary from the Pistol Whip. We do not sell the Pistol Whip on Boardcave.com. The DHD Switch Blade is a great small wave option with the extra width offering natural speed and a little extra paddle in small surf.

Hi Dino, Good to hear from you. Let us know your weight, ability and height. Email info@boardcave.com.au and we can make a more accurate recommendation. Judging board size solely on the length of a board isn't very accurate. Cheers

Hi, I'm 6 ft tall and 182 lbs. I'm a beginner. Wich is the perfect switch blade board size to me for surfing small waves (flat to 5 feet)?

Hi Leonardo, the 6'2 has 35L of volume which would be more than enough for your weight. Considering your a beginner I would recommend looking at a bigger size. Email info@boardcave.com.au and we can help you finalise the best size for your ability.
