For many wave warriors, surfing waves is nirvana. Head high or knee high. Strapped or strapless. It doesn’t really matter as long as they are on one. Nice, clean, steep or mellow, tight or spaced, tubed or tubeless, reef or wind generated waves. But not all waves are created equal. Some are messy, chaotic, and hard to handle. For this reason, we created the allrounder Ripper 2. A classic, glassed shortboard that will perform in all conditions. A board that leverages a decade’s worth of R&D from CORE’s sister company, Carved.de, a leader in custom board building.
The Ripper 3 is not your average vacuum bagged, EPS (styrofoam) surfboard made in the same factory as every other board. We deliberately rejected sandwich construction methods for more durable PU, carbon fiber and glass. Call us unconventional? Maybe. But we won’t be restricted by any board manufacturing ideology.
Classic all-round shape to handle just about anything mother nature throws at you. For pure strapped or strapless wave mastery. With the right amount of width and concave to smooth out “in between” wave chop. And a good amount of rocker to make it super fun off the lip and deep in the wave. Go back to the future with the carbon fiber and glass Ripper 2 and find your inner wave ninja. Now, for the cool stuff we added to this beauty:
