Core Choice 5 Review

Size: 139 x 42 

Bindings: Union Comfort

The Choice 5 from Core is a highly evolved twintip shape that offers outstanding levels of performance. With superior comfort and control through the chop it has explosive pop for jumps that ends with a nicely cushioned landing platform. The Core Choice 5 is also absolutely loaded with high tech materials that keep it light as well as stiff with excellent reflex response. The bottom shape is very complex with lots of channelling and a V through the central spine that creates this magical ride beneath your feet. Whether you’re a beginner looking to learn the basics or a fully booted up, wake stye ripper, the Choice is one board that will elevate your twintip experience. Test riders were fighting for more sessions on this new board with its explosive pop provided by the wide tail combined with its quick drive and chop eating mastery. The Choice has a unique combination of being grippy and powerful for jumps but also comfortable with nice edge to edge carving and control. The test team rode the Choice with the new Union Comfort binding system that is light and comfortable. The no frills strap works nicely for most regular foot sizing. The cushioning is nice and thick and the diamond shaping and toe ridges provide plenty of grip.
