CORE Kiteboarding XR7

Core has done something exceptional with the XR. Earlier models of this game-changing 5-strut design have already catapulted big air kiters to another level, so it's hard to imagine that improving on a winner is even possible. That said, the XR7 does just that. There are very few kites on the market that can match the XR7 in its big…

The Ripper from CORE enters its 4th version with a huge overhaul in design to improve not only its usability, but also lightwind and sloppy wave performance.

CORE's Bolt 3 board is for that specific all out, balls to the wall, wakestyle rider who demands only the toughest and most performance-orientated board out there. A boots specific board, this is not a board you can grow into, nor can you grow out of; it is simply that good. Designed to be ridden with either the 48mm, 28mm…

CORE have a strong surfboard range for this year, with riders like Willow River Tonkin on the team it’s hardly surprising.

Inside this is a vertically laid wood stringer, which…
