CORE Ripper 4
Pure glass. Pure passion.
New shape. More smiles per wave. The original is back with a radical new look and
an even wider range. The Ripper features a completely new outline and improved
rocker that’s incredibly easy to ride. Ripper. New shape. Same classic polyurethane
and glass flex.
So, what’s new? The Ripper features a wider, fish-inspired, profile and a new mini
swallow tail. The additional width (19” on the 5’8”) and volume focused around your
feet make the fourth generation easier than ever to ride under-powered or sloppy
waves. We reduced fin toe-in by 4mm to give it more drive and the mini swallow tail
provides 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.
Ripper. If you wanna rip around.
