The new Ripper 3 is our super smooth riding custom glass surfboard. The revised tail shape, tucked under rails, and slightly reduced width may induce endless woohoos in just about any waves. Like the ones a Nor'easterly brings to the East Coast or SW to WA. We built the ultra comfortable, Ripper 3 allrounder to feel right at home on big, messy, wind driven swell and the super smooth reefs of Mauritius and Maui. A handcrafted, glass shortboard for all your road trips, wherever they may take you. The Ripper 3. Your next allround surfboard-slash-kite surfboard-slash-lightwind weapon.

This is the way a kiteboarding shop should be. Staff are super friendly. They take the time to understand your requirements, provide advice and never put any pressure on you to buy anything. There's a huge range of stock and I've been able to demo a great range of kites and boards over the years.
After sales service is the best. Recently I had an issue with a kite I'd bought there which was well out of warranty and they didn't hesitate to inspect, diagnose and repair the issue for me and get me back on the water.Sydney, NSW
You can’t go wrong buying your kites, boards, foils, and all your gear from Kitepower - and I’ll tell you why. The culture of the business mirrors the passion and dedication of the company’s founder, Steve McCormack. And culture matters. When you purchase from Kitepower you’re purchasing from a team of kiting enthusiasts and experts who will look after you. You’ll be purchasing from a family owned business that will do the right thing and put your safety and comfort first. I fully understand that you might not have an opportunity to meet Steve. And maybe if you're purchasing online you won't step foot inside their Sydney location. But I can tell you that Steve’s dedication to kiters and to the sport of kiting is imprinted into the DNA of Kitepower and the team.Byron Bay, NSW
