The Grim Ripper concept was to develop a user-friendly, performance groveler that literally tears apart waves. Rusty collaborated with team rider Jake Halstead on the design, and feedback has been stellar. The board features a double bump squash tail, allowing a wider template overall but reduced tail area behind the back foot, producing exceptional release and tighter radius turns. Relaxed rocker, combined with full performance rails and a light single to double concave bottom, keeps the board on top of the water and skating through sections effortlessly. Jakes direct feedback: "High performance meets user friendly! During a south swell I grabbed a set wave, went straight vertical & blew the tail out, then went wide out on the shoulder into a 3 second, full buried rail arc.
Ever ridden your Magic Door and thought "geez if the tail was a little tighter wonder what it would go like" ? Well thats exactly what the Grim Ripper is!! The front half is The Magic Door outline, rocker and rails and the back half has been modified with more tail flip, thinned out foils and a double flyered rounded square pod enabling you to turn harder and sharper in the average surf. The planshape has been geared more towards a high performance groveller and you can ride it 2-4 inches shorter than most
