Product Description

The Holy Grail is a model that sits a little above the Hypto Krypto in terms of ability to perform tight critical moves in the pocket. It is a surfboard that your average surfer can ride and catch a lot of waves on, but experienced surfers can also push this board into some very high performance waves and maneuvers.

It has been designed to take that Hypto surfer on a journey with their surfing ability, still maintaining that flow and run the Hypto has but reducing the surface area in the nose, as well as using some inverted outlines late in the tail to bring some very responsive curves and feeling later in your turns. It can be ridden on all types of waves, from flatter faced waves to steep faced waves.

OUTLINE: The Holy Grail outline has been designed to bring more performance with a better fit in the tighter areas of the wave. This is achieved by narrowing the nose width and extending the length of the rail line ahead of your front foot, giving you a longer or greater connection for carving but added curve to ensure it will fit in the tighter curves of the wave. There is also more surface area to the tail area of the board to increase planing speed in smaller flatter waves. The key feature of the tail plan shape is the side cut (inverted outline) which introduces a aggressive curve to the rail line of the board affecting your surfing when on rail and late in your turns. This contrasts the flatter rocker profile which is designed to give a very fast and continuous speed profile to the board.

ROCKER: The Holy Grail Rocker has been design to ensure it retains the speed and familiar feel to the Hypto Krypto using the same large radius or flatter curve (for continuous speed). The increase in tail lift has been designed to compensate for the wider block on the tail plan shape. It’s entry rocker is very similar to retain the best paddle power, although there is added curve 12″ back from the nose to improve the fit in the tighter curves of the wave.

PERFORMANCE: The Holy Grail is a performance board that is ridden shorter and wider than a traditional performance design, it has plenty of volume throughout to ensure it can paddle easily, along with a lot of flow when surfing off the front foot. Although it is shorter, wider and more carries more volume, the design does not sacrifice any performance or response off the back foot for when you line up those great sections or waves.

NB: Fins recommended not supplied.

Technical Information

Construction FutureFlex Construction

FutureFlex represents the very latest in surfboard technology and design. The construction process combines a stringerless, high-density custom shaped EPS core laminated with biaxial fiberglass, epoxy resin and a parabolic carbon fiber frame.
The carbon fiber frame within the laminate is the key to the performance of these boards. Designed to maximize speed and drive while minimizing twisting, FutureFlex boards essentially store and release energy as the surfer transitions through a turn. The result is a fast and lively, highly responsive surfboard that’s perfectly geared for high performance surfing.

    Really enjoying this board. Have a HS Untitled as well and it’s been great, but I like this one even more. Super smooth and plenty of speed. It wants to surf the pocket for sure, so for flat grovely days I still go with my fish. This is my new go-to when the waves have some push.
