Lost Rad Ripper - 5'8" x 19.5" x 2.35" (29.3L)

Super-fast, forgiving, user-friendly retro fun, featuring modern updates and improvements, suitable for almost anyone.

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, everyday surfing.

Starting with the Retro Ripper, I lowered the entry rocker a bit (for a 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 shortboards.  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 the 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” nose, for drive and paddle -ability.
