FROM JASON STEVENSON: With a full nose, extra foam under the chest and a smooth, flat continuous rocker for easy acceleration and paddling speed, 2017’s Psycho Nitro is the latest update on one of our all-time favourite small wave weapons! Now available in HYFI, the extra flex and pop allowed by our new tech matches up with the Psycho Nitro's already insane grovelling ability to make an incredibly fast, light board that will give you the absolute best chance to enjoy weak conditions.
For this year, we've also eliminated the flyer, pulled in the swallow tail a touch more, and deepened the concaves. This complements the Psycho Nitro's other features by providing a lively rail-to-rail feel that'll have you drawing lines in average (or even terrible) waves that simply aren't possible on other boards!
WHAT IS HYFI?
HYFI. FASTER. STRONGER. LIGHTER.
FASTER. More spring. More speed. More acceleration. As soon as he jumped on his first HYFI, Dusty was already raving about it, especially after scoring a near-perfect ride at Snapper on one in his very first CT heat of the year:
“The projection you get from all the spring that it holds is incomparable. You can’t really match it with any other board! It’s easily up there with the most fun equipment I’ve ever ridden.” Here’s more from Dusty: “At the start I was flying into the lip a lot quicker than I expected, but once I had that worked out, it was a massive bonus!
You can look at places on the wave 2 that you wouldn’t have imagined getting to before. With these boards and the projection they provide off the bottom, I was flying through sections that I didn’t think I could make.”
STRONGER. HYFI has been pushed to its absolute limits, from giant airs in average waves to serious beatings in heavy water.
After our extensive series of tests we know it’s stronger than standard PU construction. But somehow, even the most impressive numbers don’t quite explain how a surfboard can survive being treated like it was by our team throughout the entire R&D process.
LIGHTER. 20% lighter than standard PU construction, HYFI has been perfected at TEAM WEIGHT. We weigh every single board, and the consistency is there for you to be confident that your new HYFI will be the exact same weight as whatever high-performance prototype is being ridden by Joel or Julian at the time.
