I bounce between longboards and short boards, and I’m 53 years old, so although the 6’2” hypto is a lot of board for me, it means I don’t have to waste waves adjusting when I come back from riding my longboard. The hypto krypto is the ultimate longboarder’s shortboard - I love it! And I’ve surfed it in every type of condition from 1ft onshore beach break grovel to double overhead reef break Rote (Indo) - very versatile. Be warned though, after riding the epoxy, it’s VERY hard to go back to regular PU boards. It’s just SO responsive.
