3 X Surfboard of The Year and worldwide number #1 seller, The Hypto Krypto is a balance of tradition and modern performance. Suited to the elite level surfer to the everyday surfer, it is often referred to as the ‘one board quiver’ for its versatility across all types of surf conditions – from small 1-3 ft beach breaks, to barrels of up to 8ft.
It has a high amount of volume under the chest, which enables it to paddle like a dream. It’s designed for surfing on the open face, to draw fast flowing lines.
The outline resembles an old school twin fin in the nose, yet it draws back to a tight rounded pintail. The wider straighter outline up front creates plenty of speed, yet the round pintail allows tight turns in the pocket.
The foil has plenty of volume around the chest and center area of the board, yet it refines out to a thinner, pinched rail to keep the board connected to the wave.
The rocker is flat throughout, although holds a little extra lift in the entry, which helps when taking off late or turning in the steeper sections of the wave. The design of the rocker is focused around speed, to enable surfers to make sections that 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.
Should I get a hypto or a plunder. I’m confused
hypto krypto for sure
Glad I stumbled upon this board out of luck a couple of years ago. It has been the best for the transition from intermediate to advanced surfer and I will still not change models when I get a new board. Had it in Costa Rica for 4 months and it really can just do anything most surfers want. Easy paddle, fast, and just a perfect grip of the wave for fast turns and drawn out cutbacks to make your ride just look impressive. I might switch if I start throwing continuous air 360s but really just don’t think I was born that athletic. Thanks Hayden
Most versatile board ever. Great on small waves where you would normally need a fish or a longboard. Also good in mushy and sketchy conditions.
When the waves get bigger, this board rocks. Handles and cuts through the wave nicely which allows you to put pressure on your turns without the chance of sliding. The steeper is the wave, the faster it goes.
Easy to catch small waves, and even easier to paddle bigger waves when you need that extra volume on the nose to get you going.
Love the pointy tail, just takes some time to get used to the amount of pressure you should put for each manoeuvre so you maintain your speed. My favorited board by far.
Anyone know how tall and how much he weighs? Trying to gauge from the 27 liters he rides.
