The HYPO is all about speed and fun!

Just as the name suggests, the HYPO is your board full of hype. It’s definitely a runner so hold on tight!

The HYPO is all about speed and fun. You’ll find yourself making sections you wouldn’t normally make on your high performance short board.

This model paddles and catches waves like a dream due to the volume under the chest. Speed is generated through the old school single fin outline, which is complimented with a nice round tail for smooth transition between turns and mid rails keeping the board connected to the wave.

The flatter rocker and concave give you all the speed under the sun. Gav added a little bit of added kick in the nose to prevent pearling too. And the double concave vee round tail combination generates ease of rail to rail transition.

The HYPO can be ridden with almost any fin combination – single, thruster or quad.

  1. Sebby

    Just grabbed a 5′ 8″ Hypo from Gav and it is freakin’ sick! We made a few subtle changes to the volume distribution to suit my surfing and even added the option for a single fin box to it for those cruisy point runners. The board is super fast, forgiving on the takeoff for a Hybrid, good in the pocket and great to lay into full turns. I am stoked on the board and the chats with Gav on refining it for me. My Buzzinga can now have a day off!

    I haven’t set foot on any of my other boards since I got the HYPO. The board is ridiculously good, surfed the point overhead today on it and it felt incredible. Very very impressed and feeling challenged as it’s made me rewire my style. Thank you. I am on cloud 9 right now. Super energized from my surf this arvo.
