The Rip Skimboard

With the Rip, you get the best of both worlds.  A high performance intermediate skimboard that performs exceptionally well when sand skimming but built for  for wave riding.  As a cross-over board, the intermediate rider can count on a wide range of performance that matches the wave conditions and the riders goals. Shaper specs:


Shape:  An performance cross-over board, serving many rider levels.  A progressive shape that delivers sand skimming plus wave performance to the advancing rider. A smaller version of our best selling Glide skimboard, the Rip planes, glides and wraps like the board of an experienced rider.


Suggested weight limit:  Riders up to 145 lbs.


Skill Level:  Intermediate riders through light weight experienced riders.


Construction:  High density, level 2 pvc foam core and double wrapped poly rails. Individually hand crafted in the USA.


Art Choices:  All WZ boards are individually hand crafted in the USA so no two boards are completely identical. Graphics are assorted.  There are different ways to move forward with your board selection:


  • Stock Art Designs – If a photo notes that the image is a stock option, that art is reproduced on a regular basis by the artist and what you see is very close to what you receive.  All WZ skimboards are individually hand crafted so you can expect your board art to vary slightly and be unique to you. 
  • Custom Completes – These are unique boards, recently completed by our artists and available for immediate shipping here: Custom Completes!
  • Individual Designs – If you plan to design your own board, you may do that on this page.  Select your top color preference and indicate the different graphics that appeal to you.  Our artist will choose or make a board that matches your specifications.
