Core Ripper 4 Surfboard
SIZES: 5’4″ | 5’8″ | 5’11”
The original is back with a radical new look and an even wider range. The fourth gen Ripper features a completely new outline and improved rocker that’s incredibly easy to ride. The user-friendly shape will have you high-five-ing and hang-ten-ing ankle biters to head highs. Ripper. New shape. But with the same classic flex, a polyurethane and glass board is known for.
The Ripper features a wider, fish-inspired, profile and new mini swallow tail. The additional width and volume focused around your feet make it easier than ever to ride under-powered or sloppy waves. We reduced fin toe-in by 4mm to give it more drive and added a mini swallow tail for a little extra bite in the corners. Imagine the fun you’ll have in sloppy waves. Yesss, fun! Give it a try. You’ll see. Just remember to demo the smaller sizes too. You may find your perfect Ripper is one size smaller now.
