Description

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.

 

Time to get serious.

1-DA WHAT IT FEELS LIKE? Here’s what 7yo JAXXON had to say about his new MASS DESTRUCTION:

"Thanks Gav for making me such a sick board.
I’m using my rail more and now that I am used to it I’m starting to get more power in my turns.
Dad says that a good rail game is where it’s at but I’m still trying to land my first air.
I love my new Mass Destruction.”

1-DA WHAT IT FEELS LIKE? Here’s what Stormn Norman had to say last week about his new BIG J:

“Loving my BIG J. One of the best boards I’ve ever ridden. Gav was fantastic on the phone, genuinely interested and keen to get something to work for me. I’m 46 and not small at 6’6 and 110kg “on a good day”. Still not ready to give up the short board and if anything riding this has given me the motivation to shed some more kilos and no doubt surf even better on this board. Thank you guys for a top product and for making my surfing enjoyable again.”

1-DA WHAT IT FEELS LIKE? Here’s what Derek had to say about his new CHEATER in the 1-DA Exclusive Epoxy technology: “I heard about Gavin on the "Surf Mastery" Podcast and then I did a bit of research of my own and there was a lot of positive feedback around his shaping. I was looking to get a couple of new boards so I got in touch with him via email. We arranged a time to chat on the phone so he could get a feel for where my surfing was at and what would be the best fit. My kids love the surf, especially the small summer days, so I wanted a board that would perform in small, knee to waist high, conditions. Gav tuned in on what I needed and he suggested a custom Cheater. I am stoked with the result. Super easy to pick up small waves, rides through mushy sections, plenty of pop and speed from the 1-DA Exclusive Epoxy construction and at 5'7" it's perfect for small waves manoeuvres. This board has quickly become a favourite as it means I can have still fun in trying conditions without resorting to a longboard. The customer service from Gav and Nikki was next level, they are great to deal with and they went the extra mile on every aspect. Thanks 1-DA team!” In Taranak (NZ)?

4 reviews for HYPO

  1. Fabiano

    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.

  2. Adam Rees

    Recently had a custom HYPO (6’0 x 20 1/2 x 2 9/16) model made by Gav. It goes SOOO well, absolutely love it. I have had a few boards made by Gav now and the process is so smooth and easy, cannot fault it. Works in the small stuff due to the volume and rounder outline, but wow its been holding up in some of the bigger swell I’ve ridden too.

    This board is fast and easily makes sections.

    If you only need one board in your quiver, this could definitely be it.

    Looking forwarded to surfing it more.

  3. 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!

  4. Carlo

    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.
