THE FREESTYLE ALLROUNDER
That’s what you get with the new Choice 4. Kickers. Lagoon. Boots. Or Straps. We build the Choice 4 to do it all. And now with Katana tips, beveled deck, and tucked under bottom rails, you’ll be killin’ it everywhere. CORE's latest iteration delivers improved versatility and performance while retaining the proven CNC milled Paulownia wood core and Cartan carbon construction that Choice riders demand. Feel the new Cartan powered Katana Channels and Deck Bevels fuel your jumps and unhooked repertoire. CORE's proven multi-channel hull delivers more woohoo’s per mile than ever before. Go hard. Or take it easy. It's all good on the Choice 4.
TUCKED UNDER RAILS
The board features a tucked under bottom rail between the straps that transitions to a box edge near the outer inserts. From there, the rail thins out to a sharper edge at the tips. The tucked under rail softens the ride and improves water flow, whereas the sharper tip edges add more bite. And we all appreciate a little more comfort in CORE's lives.
Powered by Cartan carbon. The Choice 4 takes full advantage of CORE's proprietary, high performance, 30° biaxial carbon fiber weave that optimizes board torsion, and dynamic longitudinal flex. CORE's 12,000 filament carbon fiber requires less resin, has unmatched flex characteristics, and increases board durability. Cartan carbon. The secret ingredient behind every CORE twintip.
3D WOOD CORE
Naturally dynamic. The CNC milled, marine-grade, Paulownia wood core gives the Choice 4 unmatched dimensional stability, excellent composite bonding, and a lightweight yet distinctively powerful character. CORE's production process extends the wood core further towards the board edge, making it lighter than its competition. Feel the added reflexivity Paulownia delivers.
Inspired by the legendary handling of deep-vee powerboats in rough waters, we extend a double concave, V-shaped keel for the full length of the board. The design eats chop and even smoothes out hard landings. Test the new Choice 4 in the roughest water you can find. And feel the deep Vee difference.
Extreme grip even without fins. Just like the Choice 3, four deep channels run the full length of the board. The channels reduce the wetted surface area and increase lateral resistance when planing (at all attack angles). Reducing the wetted surface area reduces drag and improves board speed. Go ahead and ride finless, your Choice 4 is always in control!
Variable rail thickness. For better control and more pop. The Choice 4 features 12mm thick rails near the center of the board that reduces to approximately 5mm at the tips. Vario Rails better calibrate the board’s flex properties.
PRO ROCKERThe Choice 4 features a progressive freestyle rocker that is most pronounced under the handle. Board curvature is then reduced towards the tips. Individual flex patterns are built into each board size to lock in the best performance possible. Without giving away CORE's secrets, good flex and bad (aka reverse) flex is measured and managed by varying the lamination thicknesses during production. A super-hard landing, for example, can create a negative rocker between your feet. We work very hard to eliminate bad flex, so those rock hard landings are easy to recover from. Not to worry, the Choice 4 is still deliciously fun when you are not “in training” mode. Go hard. Or easy. Either way, you’ll love it.
What we like
Extremely strong board
What we don't like
It's heavy, which makes board offs a bit more difficult.
It feels like
It feels steady in choppy conditions. The channels on the bottom give it great grip when coming in after kiteloops.
This product is made for
Great for big air and also wakestyle, thanks to the strong inserts, which allow you to ride boots (if that's your thing)
Board, grab handle, G10 Pro fins (42mm) and V4A screws
