TIME TO GET WEIRD...
It is a bit challenging to describe the Hypsta - every time you think that you have it nailed down you see another way that it is just awesome. Phase 5 took things to a whole new level with this board - thinking outside the box and looking to build a board that doesn't necessarily fit into any predetermined mold. The Hypsta shatters the conventional with an ultra-wide squared swallowtail, 3 different fin options, a wider than normal profile and reduced thickness throughout. What you end up with is the unique board that nobody would expect but everyone will love. Here are some ways that riders will enjoy the Hypsta:Big Guys - Bigger riders can ride the Hypsta up to 7 inches smaller than a typical skimmer meaning you can carve, spin and blast off without having to ride a giant plank.Smaller Wave Guys - The Hypsta can handle smaller waves because of the increased surface area, but also isn't too buoyant for smaller guys, ladies or teens.Novice Riders - The Hypsta is equipped with 3 fins that can be removed as your riding improves. It is a board that is easy to get set in the water and makes it easy to throw the rope. Stable but VERY maneuverable.Advanced Riders - Bottom line this is a high-performance Phase 5 which means it spins, moves, reacts and shreds amazing. Run it with multiple fins for more bite when getting fancy or go down to a single and this board becomes a stable spinning machine.When it comes down to it this board is just different than any other board out there but it is almost guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser.
Size recommendations vary based on wave size and ability level.
