HYPTO KRYPTO V DESCRIPTION
The Hypto Krypto V surfboard is a variation on the Hayden’s popular tri fin model, and while the shape remains the same, the 5-fin set up allows the board to be surfed as a quad or a thruster.Hayden adjusted the fin placement on the Hypto V to maximise the overall performance of the convertible set-up, while maintaining the smooth feel that’s become synonymous with this board. The rear fins are quite centralised, and Hayden recommends using the quad rear fin he developed with Futures to fully capitalise on the potential of this model.Compared to the tri fin, which surfs a little more freely and with nice pivot off the tail, the Hypto V offers a more connected feel to the wave face, with added forward drive and projection. The quad set-up will also feel very smooth down-the-line while encouraging a longer turn on the open face.The Hypto Krypto continues to be the most versatile shape in the Haydenshapes range, and the 5 fin set-up gives the rider even more options. The outline resembles an old school twin fin in the nose, and when combined with a high amount of volume under the chest, enables it to paddle like a dream and support rider acceleration off the front foot.Through the back the outline pulls into a rounded pintail creating a lot of curve around the back foot. This not only provides plenty of hold in the bigger stuff, but also allows you to draw tighter arcs in the pocket. The foil also refines out to a thinner, pinched rail to keep the board connected to the wave.The design of the rocker, which is flat throughout with a little lift in the entry, is focused around speed, enabling surfers to make sections they don’t normally expect to make. The concave runs from a rolled vee in the entry to a slight single, blending into a vee double out the tail, which gives the board great speed and control from rail-to-rail.
Overall the Hypto Krypto V is a one-stop board you can ride around the world having fun in average conditions, as well as taking to the barrel and the open face when the swell pumps!
White Noiz is a performance shortboard that’s been designed around Craig Anderson’s feedback on approaching smaller waves. It offers a playful sensitivity and encourages a smooth, clean approach often applied to surfboards targeting bigger conditions.
Craig’s personal preference for a performance shortboard is clean and simple in its DNA. The shape features smooth continuous rocker and outline curves, which allows the board to feel comfortable in all parts of the wave with no surprises.
The plan shape also has a little more surface area around the 12” marks in the nose and tail creating a larger sweet spot from which to generate speed in less powerful waves.
Moderate concave runs almost the entire length of the board with very clean fade-out at both the nose and tail. Slight double concave between the middle of your stance, and through the front fin area, adds nice directional acceleration to the bottom curve.
Whether you’re a front or back foot surfer, White Noiz has a very balanced feel. This model prefers to be ridden 1” – 2” shorter, and surfs best in waves from 1 – 4 feet, (waist to head and half high).
