The Hypto Krypto is the ultimate all round surfboard. The extra volume under your chest not only makes paddling a dream, but gives you so much speed on an open face. The outline is very similar to an old school twin fin from the nose, with a tight pin tail through the bottom giving it plenty of speed, but maintaining the ability to turn tight in the pocket.
A flat rocker throughout with a slight lift in the entry for late take offs and critical surfing. The rocker is purely for speed, making sections you never thought possible.
Low rails for response.
Rolled vee in the entry, to a slight single blending into a vee double through the tail for speed and control in rail to rail surfing.
Performance surfing the Haydenshapes Hypto Krypto will perform in all conditions, from small average mushy waves to clean barreling point breaks. The main focus of the design is the generation of natural speed, without compromising the manoeuvrability, and critical surfing in the pocket of the wave.
Surprised how well this board handles solid surf, has a really connected and controlled feeling and can be surfed way harder than the outline suggests. Paddles into waves better than any other board I've owned.
Surreal. It is no wonder why the board is one of Australia's top sellers. Able to do long open arcs and have enough speed to make sections where I wasn't able to before on my old board. The extra volume / bouancy has helped me paddle faster and stabilise my take off.
Returned to surfing after several years off and wanted a board to gain confidence again. I have progressed way too quick for this board and found it to be a bit of a log but still a lot of fun in a range of conditions.
