Ripper 5.1

1.299,00 €

A Timeless Classic for Every Wave


Does the legendary Ripper 5 need an introduction? Probably not. With its shortboard outline complemented by elements of a fish shape and the progressive rocker, the Ripper 5 is ideal for every wave kiter and any wave from small waves to steep overhead breakers. 

Now built in EPS composite sandwich construction, the Ripper is your loyal and durable companion who will reliably support you in a wide variety of conditions. Its new top deck made of the light T10 PET has excellent stiffness and strength and is therefore extremely robust against impacts.

Sizes (Width | Thickness | Volume):

5’4’’: 18 1/2’’ | 2’’ | 22,6 L

5’8’’: 19’’ | 2 1/8’’ | 26 L

5’11’’: 19 5/16’’ | 2 3/16’’ | 29 L

CORE Straps

Although the Ripper comes out of the box strapless, it’s designed for our optional CORE straps.

Nice to have when riding strapless.

Surf Leash 6'0''

The leash in CORE yellow can easily be recognized under water if necessary and features TPU of extremely high quality which allowed a thin diameter to keep the resistance as low as possible.
