A Timeless Classic for Every Wave


Does the legendary Ripper 5 need an introduction? Probably not. Still made in the classic surfboard construction in combination with modern manufacturing technology, it is your loyal and durable companion who will reliably support you in a wide variety of conditions. 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.

Original FCS II Fins

Bring your own or choose from four recommended FCS II thruster fin sets, which differ in terms of design and performance.


CORE Straps

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


Front Traction Pad

Nice to have when riding strapless.


Surf Leash 6'0''

The leash in CORE yellow can be recognized everywhere, and especially well under water, if it ever needs to be sorted.

The TPU is of extremely high quality, which is why we were able to reduce the diameter to keep the resistance as low as possible.


Single Boardbags

It's true; boards ding easily during transport. So protect your babies with a premium, heavy-duty bag that'll protect all your boards from those nasty travel dings. Available in many sizes, our high-quality bags will protect your surfboard for years to come.
