This shred stick is the handiwork of Yadin Nicol, and was ranked the #10 best selling surfboard of 2014.
I’m not quite sure why it’s called the Weirdo Ripper, because it’s really not that weird. Pretty standard small-wave shortboard.
Generous foam from rail to rail, and nose to tail. Great for mushier waves.
Check out the following clip to see it being surfed in all kinds of waves:
The swallow tail comes out like a normal swallow tail, but then kind of squashes off. This will help you grip the wave better.
The weirdest thing about the Weirdo Ripper is probably the wings on the tail, which give the board somewhat of a pivot point for turning. If the wings weren’t there, the board would be a bit more out of control because there would be more surface are on the water.
It’s another great all around shortboard, especially for the smaller/mushier waves.
