A week ago, Julian Wilson had never been to the Surf Ranch in Lemoore. With plenty of motivation from a completely new CT format, world title points on the line, and a high performance playground unlike anywhere else, he packed his boardbag full of regular shorties and a few spicy options in our new tech, and left early enough to try anything he wanted in the wavepool before the rest of the circus got to town.
Right from Julian's first warm-up, his favourite board was a HYFI Air 17. The construction's extra speed and pop matches the wave perfectly, plus, JW was always going to be looking at the ramps more than any other section.
After a full day of testing, Jules understandably wanted to try a few more HYFIs, so we asked our USA sales manager Dayton to bring in some stock boards and see which one felt best:

From spending an Australian summer out of the water with a torn ACL, to scoring the tail end of a pumping Moroccan winter, our mate Kai Hing has had to adapt a lot over the last few months. Now, his focus has shifted from contests to just chasing good waves with friends, mixed with whatever weird and wonderful experiences they can find on each trip. With everything you'd expect after a month long odyssey in the Taghazout region, Monster Children summed up this clip perfectly - tagine, hash and pumping righthand points.
