The Choice 5 from Core is an uncompromising freestyle board made entirely from the light and high performance CARTAN® carbon designed for riders looking for high tech performance whether you rider in straps or boot bindings. And now with Katana tips, beveled deck, and tucked under bottom rails, you’ll be riding it everywhere. Offering an innovative, performance driven but playful twintip with an extremely wide range of use, the Choice 5 is your perfect freestyle-freeride-big air one-board solution.
Thanks to pre-selected Paulownia slats, the Choice 5 is up to 250g lighter than its predecessor. Instead of the previous ABS rails, composite rods made of ABS and a laminate of up to 80-layers are used. This unibody technology, which originates from ski racing, creates a direct connection between the Cartan carbon laminates in the deck and hull in the form of a torsion box. Delivering an undeniably smooth ride combined with on-demand agility, the Choice 5 is easily accessible with sporty riding characteristics that even beginners and intermediates are guaranteed to make great learning progress on; quickly graduating to grabbed rotations and explosive jumps.
The Choice 5's excellent grip comes via state-of-the-art multi-channels, while the exciting agility and pop is made possible thanks to the relationship between the new tip shape and integrated quattro channels. Softer landings are due to the strongly contoured underwater hull, effectively breaking the surface tension of the water before pressure is felt in your knees. This easier feel helps you correct messy landings and manage choppy conditions more comfortably.
The Choice 5 also debuts a unique top and bottom rails that improve riding comfort and performance. Core have beveled the top deck edge between the footpads by approximately 2mm in thickness. The bottom edge receives a new 60/40 tucked under rail between the pads that transitions into a flat box rail at the tips. Flex and water flow are improved, and it's more comfortable in chop.
Maybe you’re not a wakestyler, but you could be one day. And perhaps you’re not a big air expert yet, but you’re on your way. So, keep your options open with the Choice 4 – a twintip with limitless options.

In flat water, the Core Choice flies across the water thanks to it's rocker line making it fast, aggressive and amazing upwind when combined with it's G-10 pro fins.
In choppy water, it goes through choppy water as if there was a cushion of air under the board. Core call this a Hydrodynamic Bottom Contour. The core wood was milled in a special Diamond 3D Shape CNC. This ensures the harmonious development of flex together with torsional rigidity.
