What is HYFI?

Our unparalleled epoxy technology, HYFI, is a unique multi-layer construction that feels like nothing else out there. Think of it as a futuristic exoskeleton for a surfboard that allows it to be lighter and stronger than ever before, while still maintaining the ideal spring-loaded flex for maximum performance.

BUILT FOR SPEED

Coming into 2020 we’re at the stage where Traktor Team riders are winning events on HYFIs, while our friends and long-time customers are giving us more and more feedback of “best board ever” about HYFIs they ride every day at home. See the full range of HYFIs in stock and available for custom order here.

Our flagship shortboard, we’ve refined the Monsta 2020 to the point where everyone from longtime weekend warriors to world champs are calling it their favourite performance driven all-rounder ever. Whether it’s a dedicated surf trip or just the daily driver to be at your best around home – available now in HYFI.

How do I look after my HYFI?

  • Be careful with your HYFI, both in and out of the water! Although they're much stronger and more durable than normal PU surfboards, they're not indestructible.
  • Don't leave it in the sun. No surfboard deals well with a lot of excess heat.
  • Ensure any minor dings are fixed with epoxy resin.

If you can tick these few simple boxes then there's a great chance your HYFI will be your best friend for a long, long time. Enjoy!

Should I change my dimensions or volume when choosing a HYFI board?

Throughout the development of HYFI, during which the team tried dozens of prototypes in a range of different models, they found their boards worked best in standard dimensions. While the EPS core and epoxy elements of the construction do add a small degree of extra flotation, testers like Dusty Payne (see his clip for more info) felt it was only just enough to notice a slight increase in buoyancy and ease of paddling, but not enough to warrant making any changes to dimensions or overall volume.

It's also worth noting that the rails in the HYFI range are slightly lowered compared to the standard PU models, which serves to make it even easier for you to ride your normal dimensions in the new tech.
