Lost Retro Ripper surfboard 5ft 11 FCS II - White
The Retro Ripper has a wider pintail with a bump wing making it a more "fun" and playful shape with a lot more "bottom end" ability than its more serious big brother.
Designed to be the perfect everyday shortboard with enough "step up" traits to make it a great travel companion for the surfer wanting to travel light with a single board or teamed with an out-and-out groveller if the swell drops right off.
If your go-to board tends to be of the wider and flatter variety and you struggle to find a suitable board for bigger and better waves then the Retro Ripper will fill this position very well indeed. This exciting little board would be brilliant on those bigger winter days here in the UK and Ireland and would also give you a real advantage when the line up is crowded and its difficult to find a wave to yourself. The Retro Ripper really comes into its own in strong offshore conditions and just seems to smooth out the bumps on windy, choppy faces.
The overall outline and bottom shape is very similar to the Retro Gun with the wide point forward, low entry rocker and fairly shallow concaves. The width under your chest and significant tail lift means the board is superfast off the blocks but can turn on a dime in the critical part of the wave. Where the Retro Ripper differs from the Retro Gun is the wider bump wing tail which gives the board better glide in smaller weaker waves with the bump wing creating a release point to keep things nice and loose in moderate surf and yet still keep its composure in more significant, sizeable waves.
There is no denying The Retro Ripper's late 80's "Mayhem" roots when Matt shaped similar boards for himself and his mates to tackle the better days at Trestles, Salt Creek and on their trips to Mexico.
This is a brilliantly versatile surfboard which paddles easily and surfs fast and fun. If you need a board to do a bit of everything including those bigger days when a hybrid is beginning to push it's luck, the Retro Ripper is a great alternative with an original look and feel enhanced by some vintage style logos and branding.
