The Glass Ripper is our high-performance all-around good wave machine. The Glass Ripper feels like a finely tuned surfboard and fits in critical parts of the wave. One of my goals has always been to get my stand-ups to feel like regular surfboards yet retain the glide and paddle ability that makes SUP so much fun. My ideal size for this one is 2 feet above my height.
This is what I recommend for anyone looking to get more radical on a variety of good waves. This year’s Glass Ripper has been updated with our new V3-concave. This represents an all-around improvement which is more stable and more maneuverable on the face of the wave rail to rail. That is a hard balance to achieve and the Glass Ripper does it really well!
The Glass Ripper represents a tried-and-true shape with the fuller nose for stability and a narrow tail for maneuverability. The Glass Ripper is an all-around performance board that will help you transition into the next level of sup surfing from cruising to ripping.
