ripsurf toy and kite - short video

4 posts in this topic

hello all

I've been busy on Gumtree and picked up a ripsurf for $50.00.  They are awesome.  They are pretty cheap new as well - I think about $130 from Target.  They are easier to ride than a rip stick and have a real surf feel to them. 

The wind was a bit rubbish (a bit too light) but I think the potential for speedy carving action is there. So, if you like longboarding with a kite, consider adding one of these toys to the play box.

I wish we were neighbors. You have all the cool skate / kite stuff.

Hi Southerly

The bottom is basically two caster wheels set at an angle.  It's a uni directional board.   I've attached a video by a pro using the board so you can see how it works.

I need a kiting neighbour.  Come on over.  And yes, I have a few toys.  But as the saying goes - N+1.  I'm now on the hunt for a cheap windsurfer to learn some land sailing.
