1-DA WHAT IT FEELS LIKE? Here’s what Fabiano had to say about his new HYPO: “Our baby was born 7 months ago and as a result I became 5 kg heavier and a little unfit. I found myself struggling to catch waves specially at the points due to currents and crowds. Also for years I've been observing guys with "fish type" boards getting more than their fair share in those conditions.
I was very specific with this order. I wanted paddle power more than anything. Something flat, wider and packing several litres more than my standard boards but hopefully still able to perform. The initial idea was riding this board only on mid size swells at crowded points.
After talking to Gav for a bit we decided on the Hypo model, with some subtle changes.
When I picked it up, to my surprise, it felt way more refined, like "sharper" than I imagined it would be.
To put in a few words, since I picked it up in February, I haven't touched any other surfboard. From small days at my local banks to pumping dbah and straddie it goes amazingly well and I'm yet to surf a good day at the points.
It's easy to surf it. The paddle power is addictive. Catching more waves, getting in early, the extra speed and flow, the surprisingly good performance when put on rail, how good it is in the barrel... it all adds up to a much more fun surf on most conditions.
It may not be as wiggly and whippy as a standard high performance shape but the overall fun factor cannot matched by any other board I've ever had.
If someone is after super paddle power, overall performance and fun on 2 - 5ft+ surf, this should be the number one option.” 1-DA SHAPES
