The Choice 3 builds upon its predecessor's strength by extending the CNC milled Paulownia wood core closer to the edges to reduce weight and increase reflexivity. Revised channels and Vario Rails give you the grip and control you need with or without fins. And its moderate freestyle rocker will get you out of trouble on those not so perfect landings. Core’s proprietary 30° biaxial carbon fiber weave further optimizes board torsion and dynamic longitudinal flex. For more pop. And silly grins. Boots or straps. Finned or finless. There really is no other Choice.
The next gen Choice 3. Freestyler Extraordinaire. Freerider fun machine
3D WOOD CORE
Naturally dynamic. The CNC milled, long grained, Paulownia wood core gives the Choice 3 unmatched dimensional stability, excellent decay resistance and a lightweight yet distinctively powerful character. New for this model is a refined hull interface and new production process that extends the wood core further towards the board edge. Board weight is reduced by up to 300 grams over similarly sized first generation boards. Feel the added reflexivity only Paulownia can offer.
Variable rail thickness. For better control. The Choice 3 features 9.5mm shaped rails near the center of the board that reduce down to 3mm on the tips.
Diamond shaped perfection. Take a close look at the Choice 3’s surface contours. On the tips and around the grab handle, the surface is milled in the shape of diamonds. The refined contours reduce weight and direct torsional forces to the fins and edges where you want them for a perfect balance between flex and rigidity.
MULTI CHANNELS (NEW)
Extreme grip even without fins. Core added more progressive tip channels and accentuated the remaining channels. The deeper channels further reduce the wetted surgace area and increase lateral resistance when planing (at all attack angles). Reducing wetted surface area reduces drag and improves board speed. Go ahead and ride finless, your Choice 3 is always in control!
Inspired by the legendary handling of deep V powerboats in rough waters, Core extended the prior model's V-shaped keel to a full-length, deep Vee hull. The new design eats chop and even smooths out hard landings. Test the new Choice 3 in the roughest water you can find and feel the deep Vee difference.
The Choice 3 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. Good flex and bad (aka negative rocker) flex is managed by varying the lamination thicknesses during production. A super hard landing, for example, can create a negative rocker between your feet. Core has worked very hard to eliminate bad flex, so those rock hard landings are easier to stick. Not to worry, the Choice 3 is still deliciously fun when you are not "in training" mode. Go hard. Or easy. Either way, you'll love it.
BOOT TOUGH INSERTS
Bombproof hold for fixed boot bindings or straps. The stainless steel V4A thread inserts are laminated in a massively reinforced base plate deep within the board. The inserts feature three different stance options.
42MM G10 PRO FINS
A beautiful balance between resistance when you need it and the loose-ness you look for in a freestyle board. Too much fin for you? No problem. We also sell optional 28mm wake fins. Still too much? No problem. Go finless and enjoy the ride.
