  • CORE Choice 3

One Board.
Maximum freedom.

Freestyle expression takes a special sticktoitiveness that you have in spades. The infinite variations of mobes, spins, and loops you’ve perfected since your first backroll has earned you our respect.  For you, we built the Choice 3 with Cartan powered pop, mega channeled grip, and custom flex.


Fun³

Or maybe, you’re new to freestyle. And you’re not sure whether being locked into boots is your thing right now. So, you’d rather hedge your bets and ride a board that’s just as much fun in straps as in boots. We made the Choice 3 for you too. Its new full-length deep Vee hull smoothes out nasty chop. And together with its optimized outline and mega channels, this comfortable allrounder rips upwind with reduced spray.

The Gen3 springs into action with the same proven CNC milled Paulownia and Cartan carbon sandwich construction used in the prior model and its adamantine cousin, the Bolt 3. Only now, the board is around 200g lighter without reducing its carbon or wood content! Our build method delivers outstanding flex properties; encouraging good freeride flex when gybing, controlling chop; and reducing bad flex (aka negative rocker)  when landing hard or freestyling. More on this down below. But wait, there’s more! The Choice 3 also gets deeper channels that reduce the wetted surface area (and by extension, water resistance) thereby increasing board speed. We finished the board with a shiny, UV blocking topcoat. Whew! That’s a lot of new stuff!


Choice 3. More innovation. Less filler.

Key Feature Snapshot

CARTAN® carbon

Powered by Cartan carbon. The Choice 3 takes full advantage of our proprietary, high performance, 30° biaxial carbon fiber weave that optimizes board torsion and dynamic longitudinal flex. Our 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, long grained, Paulownia wood core gives the Choice 3 unmatched dimensional stability, excellent decay resistance and its powerful character. The production process extends the wood core very close to the board edge, thereby reducing board weight. Feel the added reflexivity Paulownia delivers.



CORE Choice 3 - Multi Channel V-Keel

Multi-Channels (new)

Extreme grip even without fins. We added more progressive tip channels
and accentuated the remaining channels.
The deeper channels further reduce the wetted surface 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!


CORE Choice 3 - V-Shaped Keel

V-Shaped Keel

Inspired by the legendary handling of deep Vee powerboats in rough waters, we extended the prior model’s V-shaped keel to a full-length, deep Vee hull. The new design eats chop and even smoothes out hard landings. Test the new Choice 3 in the roughest water you can find. And feel the deep Vee difference.

Choice 3 - Vario Rails

Vario Rails

Variable rail thickness. For better control and more pop. The Choice 3 features 9.5mm thick rails near the center of the board that reduces to 3mm at the tips.

Diamond 3D-Shape

Diamond shaped perfection. Look closely at the Choice 3’s surface contours. On the tips, you’ll notice diamond-shaped recesses. 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.

Choice 3 - Pro Rocker

Pro Rocker

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. Without giving away our secrets, 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. We 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.



1.1" G10 Pro Fins


42MM G10 Pro FINS 

A beautiful balance between resistance when you need it and the looseness you look for in a freestyle board. Too much fin for you? No problem. We also make 48mm cutback fins and 28mm wake fins. Still too much? No problem. Go finless and enjoy the ride.

CORE Union Pro 2 Pads und Straps

UNION PRO 2 (S/L)

Our incredibly customizable pad and strap system with 3D Stance. What is 3D Stance? In addition to three longitudinal positions and eleven different foot angle options, the new footpad features six steps of fore/aft adjustment to bring the pad closer/further away from the edge. The slightly thinner orthotic EVA footpads with its “toe grabber” 3D surface will hold your feet securely even on those off-balance landings. Similar customization options are found on the improved straps to give you the perfect fit even with booties on! The dual velcro strap design features tool-free pitch, longitudinal and height adjustments to support your foot precisely. We lined the strap interior with EVA and neoprene while protecting the exterior with durable synthetic leather. Ride happy. Ride Union Pro 2.
