With the QS travelling from Huntington to Spain’s fickle beachies, Mikey’s surfed his fair share of average waves lately. Back home, the Gold Coast also saw a terrible run of surf between contests, with classic early spring onshores and barely any swell. Thankfully, we had the perfect boards to test at the time, with Mikey flairing on both HYFI Nitro’s and Psycho Nitro’s, often in waves we wouldn’t have even bothered looking at without the right grovellers. Board breakdowns, below (he’s 6’0” / 78kg):
HYFI NITRO - 5'7" x 19 5/8" x 2 3/8" x 28.5L
HYFI PSYCHO NITRO - 5'5" x 19 3/4" x 2 1/2" x 29.3L
Mikey's HYFI Nitro, geared with our FCS template in large for maximum drive and flow.
The Nitro's even shorter, wider, younger brother - our Psycho Nitro, in HYFI.
