    Core Complete Surfboard Range for 2017





    Three new boards. One huge surfboard range.

    CORE completes its surfboard range with an aerialist and a big wave hunter.







    Anyone who has met CORE Founder Bernie Hiss appreciates his  passion for waves. Given the brand’s focus on kites and twin  tips in recent years, you’d think that his interest in wave  riding waned. But you’d be wrong. Instead, the brand behind  the ubiquitous yellow and white kites invested heavily into  the segment and not only updated the ever popular Ripper 2 but  is releasing two additional surfboards. The skate/freestyle  oriented 720, and the big wave hunter Green Room now joins the  Ripper 3 in CORE’s surfboard lineup.


    Avoiding groupthink, Fehmarn’s favorite engineers rejected  contemporary materials and mass production when developing  their latest two boards. Instead, they opted for classic glass  and closed cell polyurethane foam.  Experienced kitesurfers  appreciate the inherent refinement of a custom glass board  including its precise foil shape, symmetric rails, and the  classic smooth ride. “Nothing matches the fine tolerances and  flex memory of glass boards,” comments CORE CEO, Bernie Hiss.  As one of the few remaining major brands to manufacture glass  boards, CORE is steadfast in its belief that glass boards are  superior in shape, feel, and performance. “You can tell the  difference. Try one. You’ll see.” suggests Bernie.


    All boards are available now for purchase at any authorized  CORE retailer. They are priced at 899 Euro and ship with a  rear pad. A larger selection of accessories is also available  including 3 FCS II thruster fin sets, a center traction pad, a  front traction pad, and CORE’s brand new foot straps.



    1). Complete Surfboard



    The SevenTwenty is CORE’s new-school, strapless freestyle  rocket with stick-to-your-feet awesomeness. The 720 brings  explosive style with its compact, no nose shape. But don’t be  fooled. The SevenTwenty’s wave pedigree is still intact with  plenty of nose rocker, a Round Winger Tail designed for snappy  off-the-lip aerials, and the smooth ride you expect from a  glass custom board. And it's just as comfortable in the flats,  fakie style.


    When it comes to versatility, CORE’s smallest wave board plays  in the big leagues. The 720 is the star player that loves big  waves, big style, and big speed. You’d think a tiny board like  the 720 would need a lot more wind but its flatter rocker and  more parallel shape surprisingly planes faster than the Ripper  3 making it a great choice for lightwind sessions. This easy  riding, fast planing freestyle guru will not only raise your  game but your pulse too.

    Green Room

    The all new, rounded pin tail, big wave board is designed for  serious wave riders who seek indefatigable control in the  pocket and on super steep monsters. It carves magnificent  frontside turns on the the bottom while lesser boards are  bouncing out of control. Polyurethane foam and glass  construction allow CORE to precisely fine tune the rails,  foil, and rocker for exceptional speed and agility on steep  wave faces. A single concave that transitions into a vee  delivers more grip. A double stringer design better supports  the massive loads when used with straps. The 60/40 tucked  under rail that transitions seamlessly into a hard tail rail  provides greater maneuverability. Its narrow width, low volume  (15% less than Ripper 3), and reduced lift pin tail give  riders the grip and control needed to enter the Green Room.  “But it’s not for everyone,” warns Bernie Hiss, CORE’s  founder. “I designed this board for big wave hunters like  myself.”



    3). Complete Surfboard


    Ripper 3

    The updated Ripper 3 is a smooth riding, strapped or strapless  allrounder that fits neatly in the middle of CORE’s board  range.  The third generation of the much-loved Ripper features  a revised tail shape, tucked-under rails, and slightly reduced  width. A round tail replaces the previous board’s squash tail  to give it a little more contact in the corners. The sharper  60/40 tucked-under rail improves water release for a little  more speed and traction. Its double concave hull and double  stringer design keep you in control over rough chop. This  allrounder feels right at home on big, messy, wind driven lake  swell and the super smooth reefs of Mauritius and Maui. Even  ride the Ripper kiteless if the swell is nice and the wind  isn’t. The Ripper 3 is CORE’s latest iteration of an  allrounder for all your road trips, wherever they may take  you.
