Product Description of Wham-O Boogie Ripster Surfboard.
The Boogie Ripster Surfboard is a board and starter’s surfboard in one and is a tonne of fun; made with a durable foam body board with two removable fins makes it a multi-use board. A classic boogie board for kids and little adults; with its surfboard shape, foam formation and fins, also can be used as a beginner surfboard as it glides better than the standard surfboard. Its Phuzion core and EVA construction guarantees that the Ripster boogie board is waterproof, very light and extraordinarily durable but also soft: deck and bottom. It has cool surfboard inspired graphics with a fibro clad covering; plus, with its surfboard shape and detachable fins will allow small kids to use it as a skimmer. The Ripster Boogie Pro surfboard board is 40” large with a surfboard inspired appearance and graphics and has two detachable fins–do it all: body board, surf and skim. The designs vary, and one will ship randomly. From the world renowned American toy company Wham-O, the makers of the Frisbee, Hula-Hoop and the Superball.

Of all the things I have purchased on Amazon, this may be the one I regret the most. The pictures somehow managed to deceive my brain into thinking that this was a boogie board/skimboard sized object and that I could have a good time playing around on it. Ah, if only I were two feet tall.
It is a piece of foam, wrapped in some laser-printed material (no stomp pad texture or anything of that sort, just a graphic) that is about three feet long, or — despite the typo — about 40″.
For what it is, it is custom overpriced. As the reviewer wisely said on the “Pro” version (if only I had read that before buying this one): “This is a toy, not a surfboard […] Save your money it’s a pool toy, and an expensive one.”
This Board is not a surfboard nor a boogie board aka body-board. It is not meant to be out submerged in ocean nor used to catch waves! DO NOT attempt or you can be injured. This particular board is like a skateboard on sand. How it works is you only run with the board, drop it on shore (25ft away from water or enough to where water is still atop the sand), and you slide all the way until you hit shore! Once you hit that water, you can do neat tricks and is quite fun! They should have been more specific and labelled it as “Skim Board.” either way this can be confusing! I elect they call them “Sand Boards.” That would create less confusion and the title in itself should pop the magic question – “Hey, what is a sand board?” WOW! That was easy! I hope this helps you guys out! Switch it up now and try your hand at some slip sliding on the sand! Wooohooo! 4 Stars just because the title is confusing for those not experienced on purchasing any surf, water sports product.
It is a material covered styrofoam boogie board claimed to be a surfboard. Luckily it has removable fins on the bottom, and it is a bit longer than a boogie board otherwise my son would not have wanted it. The description was not specific on these points. For the price, it is great and is build well.
