It contains an axis that allows it to rotate horizontally, vertically, and on its Z-axis. This means that you can twist, turn, and perform your own tricks easily. All you have to do is apparently carve and go, then you're all set. Also, it claims to be the only street surfboard with flex neck design and 360 degree pivoting aluminum trucks. People on the infomercial say that it's nothing they have ridden before. Kids and adults are both seen riding it, saying its for all ages.
The cost of Whiptide is $99.99 plus $29.95 shipping. The special TV offer allows a free gift which you will receive by paying the extra shipping fee of $29.95 for a total price of $159.89.

The Whiptide is a rolling device that can best be described as an enhanced version of a skateboard. It’s easy to get it moving—all you need to do is wiggle your hips and bend your knees, and you don’t even need to push off on the ground. You can even go uphill for a short while without pushing, and if you go downhill, it will seem as if you could soar along forever. This apparatus does not require much power from its user due to the fact that its dual decks are capable of rotating in circles to power it on their own. These decks are held together by a flexible neck connector, which will also move as needed.
Each Whiptide has four wheels that are 80 millimetres wide, so its unlikely that youll take frequent falls when using this board.
From kids to seniors, anyone who can bend their knees and wiggle their hips while standing is able to use the Whiptide.
The Whiptides large decks make it more stable to ride than a standard skateboard.
Due to the grip tape on each deck, your feet will easily stay on your board in the desired position.
The Whiptides decks also have spiked traction zones that aid with foot control.
Each Whiptide is made with ABS plastic, which is almost indestructible, so your board is likely to last a long time.
The Whiptide is available in three powerful shades, including Opal Black, Royal Blue, and Radical Red.
When you use this board, youll feel like youre actually snowboarding or surfing. Therefore, if you enjoy either of these activities, but cant do them at certain times for whatever reason, using your Whiptide is a great alternative.
While the workout you get from using the Whiptide isnt that intense, since the board creates so much power on its own, its much better than sitting on your couch.
If you live in an area during which you get a lot of snow in the winter, you will have to keep your Whiptide inside for awhile. The apparatus is only suitable for use on roads that are free of ice and snow.
On the infomercial, a young girl says that the Whiptide travels fast, but its easy to stay on. This gives credence to the idea that its safe for kids to use, provided that they take heed of the safety warnings within the instructions.
Traditional skateboards are fun to use, but they dont have the flexibility of movement that the Whiptide has. Therefore, its harder to get them moving and keep them moving. The Whiptides flexibility enables it to harness energy much more quickly than one of these, meaning that it will move much faster, for longer, with less effort from you. It is also more stable than a standard skateboard.
Rollerblades are also fun to use on the street, but they are harder to balance on and require more of your energy than the Whiptide, too. Plus, you cant do all the tricks on them that you are able to do on the Whiptide.
