Get insane versatility and the perfect travel companion with the Haydenshapes Hypto Krypto V Surfboard. Offering the ability to carve and cruise just as well as it rips and shreds, the unchanged template of the much loved Hypto Krypto model is now fitted with an ultra adaptable five fin set up, so it can be surfed as a quad or a thruster. Hayden adjusted the fin placement on the Hypto V to maximize 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 centralized, and Hayden recommends using the quad rear fin he developed with Futures to fully capitalize 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 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!

CONSTRUCTION FutureFlex Construction
FutureFlex construction is a stringer-less parabolic carbon fibre frame, shaped out of high density EPS foam and built from custom designed materials exclusive to the Haydenshapes brand. The technology delivers a high energy, rapid spring back resulting in ultimate speed and drive. FutureFlex boards are constructed using custom designed high performance materials. However, like any surfboard, this does not prevent the board from breakage or compressions. If damage occurs, dry out all water from the EPS core before repairing it using Epoxy resin.
