The Rib Rocket is designed in California and has strategically placed, PVC foam padding sewn into areas where the ribs come in contact with the board during prone paddling. The padding is just enough to soften the impact where cartilage bone meets board and glass.

The manufacturers have found that more surfers suffer rib-pain because of the increasing popularity of epoxy boards that are much harder than traditional fiberglass resins. Rib Rocket addresses these problems and offers a comfortable solution for all that suffer from rib pain.

The Rib Rocket features a 2mm neoprene front panel with sewn-in PVC padding for comfort and stability and a Lycra back for a fine fit and cooler material for warmer climates. A board short connector loop was added to prevent ride up, and also a side draw string to snug the waist. The Rib Rocket provides 50+ U.V. protection from the sun.

Use the size chart in the product pictures as a guide, cells in Green are the labelled sizes and the Olive coloured cells represent size ‘stretching’ according to weight. If you fall into an Olive Green range, then use your judgement as to which labelled size to choose. Normally, weight is a better indicator than height, although there are always exceptions.

Normally Rib Rocket sizes run a little small so, order one size up if you are at the high end of the weight scale on the chart. Call us if you need some advice.
