The Ripper is the Dippers big brother. The wider standing platform provides confidence at higher speeds and works great for bigger riders. The board uses slightly wider trucks to match the width of the deck. It has a soft, bouncy flex and a nice, long wheelbase which give it a playful, surfy ride. The Ripper lets you lean deep into your carves. Mellow concave and a subtle rocker will have you feeling right at home on this board. The kicktail gives you something extra to play around with on those long commutes and adds an element of versatility to this board.
