The Hyper is a new Model for 2022 and features Softlite's new Hybrid Construction.
Like name suggests, Softlite combined the favourable elements from both a Performance Fibreglass Boards & and Entry Level Softboard to create a selection of board that stays true to our core values of Quality, Performance and Safety.
About the Hyper:
The Hyper is the ideal small wave, high performance softboard.
It could best be described short, wide and flat giving it a touch of extra volume, while still keeping the rail line nice and short.
The extra volume ensures it paddles well, and is easy to ride in average to weaker conditions.
The shorter, rounded template allows for maximum manoeuvrability and top to bottom surfing in the smallest of conditions.
The flatter rocker allows it to gain and hold speed off the weakest of sections, but because its nice and short it should still fit nicely in the pocket if the waves get a bit more hollow.
The Diamond Tail allows for more pivotal turns, but keeping it nice and rounded provides smoothness and a touch of extra surface area for smaller waves.
Softlite also did their best to solve the #1 problem of softboards - the rails! The Hybrid Range features an updated version of our Parabolic Rolled Rail Technology. These are then hand shaped, allowing softer rails near the nose tapering down to a sharp, harder edged rail at the tail. Similar to regular fibreglass surfboards, it allows if to be forgiving and not catch rails up front, but gives it a bit more bite making it easier to turn off the tail.
Similarly, to a stringer, these rails also provide extra stiffness in the board, and generally helps to increase the durability of the board.
Board features a Thruster Fin Set up using Futures Fin boxes.
