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. Now, in the last 5 years since it was first released, we’ve taken everything learned to improve each aspect – the performance, flex, speed, materials used and manufacturing processes.
We found the next level of this technology by developing precision engineered stringers, or pins, which are scaled specifically for each board. The size of the pin changes depending on the dimensions of the HYFI, and therefore the weight of its intended rider. The shape of each board’s pin perfectly reflects our goal of making the stiffest part of the board at the centre, tapering out to each end. This results in an even better flex pattern that helps you load and explode into turns.

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!
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.

We've been working hard to bring out a range of models in HYFI as stock, which are now available both in core stores and online. Along with these current favourites that you'll find in stores, the rest of our range from the Summer Series and X Series can also be perfected at your specification in the new tech, via HYFI custom order. Also available both in core stores and online via any model page.VIEW HYFI RANGE
