RAD RIPPER is the latest in our 'Post Modern Retro' collection. A direct spin off from the Retro Ripper, but scaled for small, sub-par, every day surfing.
Starting with the Retro Ripper, I lowered the entry rocker a bit (for fast paddle, early entry, easy glide and quickness out the gate), and replaced the speed controlling round tail with a wide, planing squash tail. Lots of lift and surface area for small surf. As a child ofÂ 80's surfing, I've always been enamored by the ease of use from that era's performance short boards.
The RAD RIPPER retains a noticeably healthy amount of tail rocker, cut through by an aggressive double concave, adding even more lift and squirt under the rear foot. Super-fast, forgiving, user friendly retro fun, featuring modern updates and improvements, suitable for almost anyone. Highlighted features include:
Flat, stable deck, with steep, low apex, tucked soft rails.
Slight vee in nose (to free up the low rocker) into a shallow single concave, into a deep double concave vee, for both speed and control.
Wide, stable squash tail, glides across anything, and holds speed through turns, even in small summer slop.
Forward thickness flow, with wedged 'beak'Â nose, for drive and paddle -ability.
*Please note thatÂ the price displayed is for a white board with no spray
The rainbow rail spray pictured can be added for an extra $85. Sometimes the board you order may have the rail spray already added. In this case we will get in touch with you to see if you would still like to proceed and to process the extra cost.
