Little Rippas is a purpose-built Australian kids SUP. These are colourful, fun, size appropriate boards where kids can not only learn to SUP, they can also learn to surf on them as well.
Every board is under 7 foot and under 7kg, so they’re light enough for kids to carry and easy for kids to turn. They also fit in any small car so you don’t need racks or a big car.
The founder of Little Rippas is Justin “Frotha” Holland. He’s not only the dad of two water-loving grommets, he’s also one of those genuine and highly talented Australian watermen who just froths on everything ocean related. Some of Justin’s creds include:
Justin’s also won the Stand Up Surf Shop Rottnest Classic and is a regular visitor to WA from his hometown of northern NSW.
You can imagine that the ‘frothas’ kids aren’t going to be delicate with their boards. Justin is a builder when he’s not on the water, so quality construction is is a huge priority for him.
Little Rippas SUP boards are made from a durable EPS foam blank with two plywood stringers for extra strength. The have two 6oz fiberglass layers and a thin bamboo laminate on the deck.
For safety and comfort, a soft skin has been added on the deck, along with thick rubber stoppers on either end.
