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 of ‘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.

Product Description

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 andcontrol.

• Wide, stable squash tail, glides across anything, and holds speed through turns, even in small summer slop.

• Forward thickness flow, with wedged “beak” nose, for drive and paddle -ability.
