CORE Green Room Waveboard

Enter the green room

Big wave riding is intoxicating, isn’t it? There’s nothing like those (time-bending) Zen moments in big surf. Like hitting the biggest lip of your life. Or dropping into a double overhead. And a few of us dream even bigger and seek the holy grail of kitesurfing – getting tubed and enjoying the view from (inside) the green room. Dream big.

We build the Green Room 2 for big wave hunters like you. This stick is fast, agile, and ready to attack the legendary surf spots. Even the North Shore and Nazaré, if you dare. We fine-tune the rails, foil, and rocker for exceptional speed and agility on steep wave faces. It’s noticeably narrow in width and low in volume to manage bigger, faster swells and more wind. Its rounded pintail design creates less lift and more bite on steep faces. Grab a Green Room 2 and ride with newfound fearlessness.


What's new?

Lots! Our proven shape gets a new stringer-less, hexagon construction that's tougher and lighter than ever. We start with high-density EPS foam that’s topped with a recycled PET (polyethylene terephthalate) hexagon and E-Glass sandwich. The hexagon foam features channels that link the top and bottom glass layers making it super strong and durable. Heel dents are considerably reduced. That’s progress.

Is this board for me?

This stick isn’t for everyone. But, if you ride overheads (and bigger) and prefer a narrower, faster, and more responsive surfboard that takes a little skill to ride then this is your board. If you surf fast swell or high winds this is your board. And if you plan on surfing One Eye, this is really your board. hype[on] A serious stick-to-your-feet, winner-take-all, leave-no-prisoner, unicorn board. hype[off]

Be fearless. And ride Green Room.

Key Feature Snapshot





Designed in Germany. And made in Spain.

Engineered in Fehmarn. And made in Spain by expert shapers and glassers. Producing them in small runs ensures dimensional perfection and the high-performance CORE riders expect.






We use a special high-density polystyrene foam with better flex characteristics than standard foam. It’s a little heavier, but given the conditions the Green Room will find itself in, HD foam is a must.

EPS Composite Sandwich NEw!

Your Green Room 2 is built for badass waves. The composite PET (polyethylene terephthalate) foam and glass sandwich is not only durable but it’s also made from recycled plastic bottles. Score one for the environment.

The hexagon foam we use features channels that link the top and bottom glass layers forming a superstructure that’s strong, durable, and ideal for high load areas like under your feet. Although our new sandwich composite will resist most dents, you’re still gonna get a few. But dang! This stuff is impressive.

Level One Verified Ecoboard NEw!

Making high-performance products more sustainable is a good thing. Our feel-good board incorporates sustainable materials like recycled plastic bottles and bio-resins to reduce its carbon footprint.


Big Wave Outline - Green Room

Big Wave Outline

With less volume and width, the Green Room is a handful to ride but the payoff is worth the effort. It tames big waves with confidence-inspiring highspeed bottom (toeside) turns, excellent acceleration, and serious grip on the face.

Green Room - Rounded Pin Tail

Rounded Pin Tail

Maximum traction and control. The Green Room’s round pin tail rides deeper and has a longer, straighter rail that improves control at speed. And the pronounced tail kick will have you carving magazine-worthy frontside turns.

Progressive Rocker

The board features a 3 stage progressive rocker with a fast, flat middle similar to the Ripper 4. The Green Room 2’s front rocker comes in at 114mm, 8.3mm more than the Ripper 4 to reduce pearling on super steep wave faces. The rear rocker is 6mm greater than Ripper 4 to improve carving.

Green Room - 3D Hull

3D Hull

The board features a light, single concave hull that transitions into a Vee towards the tail. It’s the perfect prescription for tight, controlled bottom turns on big, scary waves. And, of course, hugging the sidewall when entering the green room!

Tucked Under Rail - Green Room

Tucked Under Rails

The rails feature a sharp, “tucked under” rail design that releases water better yet maintains the classic smooth and forgiving ride you’d expect from a glass board. The central 60/40 tucked under rail transitions seamlessly into a hard tail rail to provide greater maneuverability.

Strap Ready - CORE Green Room Surfboard



The deck is fitted with V4A inserts to receive optional CORE straps in two stance positions.

Blunt Nose - CORE Green Room Surfboard

Blunt Nose

We file it off because, in the long run, our trademark blunt nose is safer, more durable, and just plain cool. The Green Room 2 fits nicer in board bags and travels better in oversized luggage.

Thruster Fin Setup - CORE Green Room Surfboard

Thruster Fin Setup

The Green Room 2 features a classic three fin thruster setup for a looser feel. Thrusters are well known to turn tighter than quads and release easier for cleaner moves off the lip.

Green Room - Original FCS II Fin System


The Green Room 2 is fitted with an FCS II fin box system. FCS II is the keyless fin system that enables 2-second fin changes without tools. It’s wise to stick with the global standard in fin boxes for the day you lose a fin on your favorite reef. Its backward compatibility (in that it still retains grub screws to secure any old FCS fin you or your friends may have), will have you back on the water in no time. Now that’s progress.


Original FCS II Fins

Bring your own or choose from three recommended FCS II thruster fin sets: The standard FCS II Carver Glass Flex (GF), the more advanced “Accelerator Neo Glass“ or the pro FCS II Accelerator PC Carbon Tri Set.

CORE Surf Straps

CORE Straps

The Green Room is equally talented with or without straps. Naturally, there are days you might prefer straps. And for those days, we built the CORE straps. Super comfortable, fully adjustable, stand-on-able, straps that come complete with stainless steel screws, anti-twist bases, and variable screw positions. These well-padded straps feature an easy-grab Velcro adjustment to fit any size foot. Yep, even a giant's.
