Does anyone have one or tried one yet? I’m looking for reviews or feedback.

I can't speak to the retro ripper directly but I have had quite a few retro guns and I find them to be great all around boards. They're high performance, user-friendly and work in a wide range of conditions. I've been really happy with quite a few of my retro guns with the exception of two that I ordered too think so I think it's safe to assume that the retro ripper would be an all-around solid option. They modernized retro boards (flat deck / lower entry rocker / panel v) so they're not going to feel exactly like modern hp shortboards. Hope that helps.

Around 5:15 mark, Luke Davis paddles out on one. To be honest, it looks kinda flat under his feet, but the waves are small.

I think it's a Rad Ripper actually, sorry OP.
