RipSurf Waveboard Review
RipSurf Waveboard Review by Winston “the Find Your Flow guy” Widdes
The RipSurf Waveboard is AMAZING.
Let’s get right to it…. This things RIPS!
For all us landlubber types that live inland, or even if you live near the sea but maybe you want to mix it up on a flat day, this is one of the most amazing things that I have found to simulate being on a wave and pumping down the line.
For the record, I used to surf a lot, but over the years I got old and got kids and going to the beach is more trouble than its worth and I don’t like cold water and I got skin cancer from the sun and I am ascared of sharks and somebody ought to call me a waaambulance.
Anyway, I really missed the feeling of surfing and have been trying to figure out the best way to recreate it here at home.
I looked at balance boards, and did end up buying one of those too! You can check out that review COMING SOON
I really, REEEEEAAALLLY wanted to get an exercise that would simulate the movements of pumping down a line on a surfboard.

Growing up my family had boats and I grew up surfing behind a boat before learning to surf in the ocean.
It’s like an endless wave!
My legs would eventually get exhausted from snapping the tail, pumping, take a nearly horizontal bottom turn, back to the top of the wave to smash the lip again, and on and on until I was so tired I needed a break.

It was some of the best exercise EVER!
It was FUN.
It worked my CORE.
It worked my ABS.
It worked my LEGS.
How could I possibly re-create that kind of exercise at home?
That’s where the idea for getting a balance board came up.
Then I started looking outside that box and found
OH! A tangent, the AbDolly is AMAZING too. (Review coming soon!)
The AbDolly can hit this midsection area in a cool, almost surfy kinda way.
But it wasn’t enough.
I wanted something even MORE FUN.
That’s when I stumbled upon the RipSurf.
It LOOKS like a surfboard, like a mini one anyway, but would it RIDE like a surfboard?
I watched a bunch of videos, here are some of my favorites…
Here are some sweet videos of people on RipSurfs!
First, a nice long downhill…
This one is more of a city sesh….
Skate Park! This one is super smooth and flowy 🙂

Get it, you won’t regret it. Well, get crash pads and a helmet too, you won’t regret that either, ask me how I know 🙂
