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.

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.

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.
