The Ripper takes the #FastIsFun ethos introduced by the 9R, and combines it with a playful stern for an extra dose of adrenaline.
Standout features of the design are generous bow rocker , prominent edges which soften towards the stern, ample foot room, maximum waterline for exceptional downrivre speed, and a highly predictable, supremely manoeuvrable planing hull.
With enough volume to take on all your favourite runs, in the Ripper you'll be stern squirting out of eddies, dip turning around rocks, and soul surfing every wave... after all, kayaking is meant to be fun!
+ Low volume stern, for unhindered back deck rolls and kickflips
+ Planing hull with maximum waterline; fast, manoeuvrable, and perfectly suited to surfing
+ Full volume bow punches through larger features, whilst also offering ample foot room and volume for huge pop outs
+ Bow control edges for carving performance on waves and downriver manoeuvrability, softening towards the stern for forgiveness and to keep the hull loose for flat spins
