  • CHALLENGE
  • SOLUTION
  • The lifespan of the materials used in FutureFlex allow the board to maintain its original flex patterns 2-3 times longer than a traditional surfboard. The custom designed Carbon Fibre frame has a faster flex than a wooden stringer (used in traditional board design) , which creates more speed and performance in the water. Along with the unique Hypto Krypto shape, this has been said to improve the surfing ability of the average surfer by allowing more vitality and response through manoeuvres performed. The Flex pattern of the design has been engineered to minimise torsional twist and increase flex response.

  • The shape of the surfboard plays a key role in the overall feeling and manoeuvrability when riding a wave. The Hypto Krypto incorporates high performance attributes to a design that maximises stability and forgiveness. This means that the users of all experience levels from beginners to pro level, are able to ride and experience the shape at their best potential. The outline has more width up front for stability yet pulls in to a tight rounded pin tail full connectivity and response. The rocker (side profile) has been designed for maximum paddle and surfing speed.
