The Ripper is a scaled down longboard shape that measures 36.9″ long by 9″ wide. A slightly flexy ride and the long wheelbase give it a playful, surfy ride and lots of lean in carves.
 
Mellow concave and a good amount of rocker will have your feet feeling at home on this board from the first ride.
 
Ripper Postcard - We set this board up with Polar Bear 155mm trucks to give it the combination of agility and stability that it needed and finished it off with a set of 63mm 78a EZ Hawgs wheels to keep the board nice and light while still giving a fast, smooth ride.
Ripper Watercolour - 130mm Polar Bears & 63mm 78a Fatty Hawgs - more agility & is better for carving.
 

The Ripper is an 8/10 Flex, 1 being STIFF and 10 being FLEXY!

So, what’s flex and why is it important to a skateboard? In skate-nerd terms, flex is the amount of displacement a deck sees when a specific amount of force is applied to it.
It’s important to understand flex when choosing a board.

Here are some basics:

  • Downhill/freeride skateboards will have less flex because you need a stiff platform to stand on when you’re bombing or gripping a corner at speed.
  • Carving skateboards will have more flex, giving you the ability to sink into your turns and pump or carve with ease.
  • Most cruisers, dance and ATV boards will have less flex for control when doing tricks but just enough to be forgiving when pushing around town.
