The Hypto Krypto is the most versatile shape in the Haydenshapes range, enabling it to be ridden in waves from 1ft to 8ft. It paddles like a dream due to the volume and flatter rocker. You ride the Hypto Krypto on the open face, drawing fast, flowing lines with all the speed it provides.

The outline resembles an old school twin fin in the nose, yet pulls into a rounded pin tail which will give you plenty of hold in the bigger stuff, and provide a lot of curve around the back foot. You can use the wider, straighter outline forward on the board to give you speed down the line and the rounded pintail to draw tighter arcs in the pocket.

Although the rocker of the Hypto Krypto is flat, Hayden has snuck in a little extra lift in the entry to add some curve up front; this helps taking off late, or turning in the steeper sections of the wave. The design of the rocker has been focused around speed, and more speed! The Hypto has never been shaped as a quad because it is too fast already, you’ll find yourself making sections down the line that you would never expect to make.

The foil has plenty of volume around the chest and center area of the board, yet it refines out to a thinner, more pinched rail to keep the board connected to the wave. The concave runs from a rolled vee in the entry, to a slight single transitioning into a vee double out the tail, which gives the board great speed and control from rail to rail.

Overall the Hypto Krypto is the one stop board that you can travel all around the world having fun in average conditions, as well as taking to the barrel and open face when the swell pumps!

Gustaf Hellborg from -, Sverige says:

Father of 3, i have to travel with one board. My 6.0 makes it all for all conditons ! Awsome to fly through sections. Fast and perfect on the open face.

Decided on the 6'4. Has a lot of float. Maybe a little extra for me since I am 5'7 & 175lbs. However, the board is phenomenal. I've had two experiences on it in moderate to excellent surf conditions. Be aware, I am a long time surfer - but have been out of the short board game for almost 8 years. My first experience, I launched an air. My second experience was pulling into my first ever legit curtain and exiting perfectly for like half a second. Still what an experience. I can't not imagine the board had something to do with this after my long hiatus~!!!

LP from RI, United States says:

I've been surfing New England point breaks for roughly 15 years. This board is literally a game changer. I catch 2x the waves, make sections I would have missed, and make cleaner turns than before. If you watched me ride one of my other shortboards and then watched me ride this... you'd think it was two different dudes. Here is how it fits into my quiver: (1) Hypto Krypto 6'2, 38 liters (2) CI Flyer, 6'4 31.5 liters (3) CI MSF Single Fin, 6'6 43 liters I've surfed the hypto in waist high to 3 feet over head and it's been absolutely perfect. Not sure if I'll ever ride my other boards again. I don't get into enough waves on my 6'4 flyer. The single fin isn't as much fun to ride. I'm 5'9, 33yrs, and 155lbs. I surf once a week and I'm not that strong (which is why I opted for the larger volume to add paddle power). I'm really happy with the size i chose. I can duck-dive this board with ease. It's perfect in trunks and i'm really confident that it will float me in a 6mil in February. I never post product reviews... but I got a lot of value out of the other reviewers so I figured it was time to give back!

yoel rizo-patron from FL, United States says:

Love it. Surf with it mostly in South Fl. Great in mushy weak waves and also in punchy beach breaks. Took the board to Peru-Chicama , and also to Lima and its many great surf spots. The board was excellent, great on the rail, carves even under lots of speed. Best travel board to bring will adapt to any conditions.

John Streit from Virginia , USA says:

One session after watching a good friend absolutely SHRED the Hypto, I was sold. My boy already had a ton of ability, but it was as if the Hypto unlocked his hidden potential. Once I rode it, it turned things on for me similarly. I love riding ...lost-type round-nose fishes here on the East Coast on those softer days, so the volume up front and the flat rocker felt natural. Immediately, this board differentiated itself by that tight rounded pintail and thruster setup. Once you engage that back foot, the Hypto transforms from a wave-catching, flowing fish to an all-out high performance shortboard. Turns vertically like a dream, holds tight in the barrel and draws super-tight arcs on the open face. The volume up front really aids in generating speed off of your bottom turn and provides a super-solid feel when rebounding off of the whitewater on cutbacks and off-the-tops. Being a fish enthusiast, the Hypto is the perfect option for when the waves have more of a curve or vertical wall, or when it is running fast down the line, which happens often when it gets good here on the East Coast. It also performs well in softer surf due to the volume up front. Like James said in the previous review, it's a head turner. I had a guy at Soup Bowl in Barbados actually offer to buy the Hypto off of me in the car park after just seeing a couple of my waves. Everywhere else I've taken it, people always ask to check it out and want to catch a couple waves on it. BELIEVE THE HYPE. This board is the truth.

James from CA, USA says:

I'm 5'10", 145lbs., intermediate/advanced, riding a 5'8". The hypto krypto is fast and floaty enough to be fun on waist high summer days. The extra foam under your chest means it paddles really well, even to catch bigger waves. (I had a blast on this in 10' Ocean Beach under perfect conditions). You can put it on rail like a normal shortboard, though this isn't a big wave board and you'll likely have to baby your turns to keep the fins in the face when it's powerful. It will also allow you to ride high in the pocket for barrels, unlike most fish. The outline encourages a good balance of speed, flow and carve for attractive, effortless surfing. It's user-friendly, but due to the flat rocker, it's not for beginners, especially in fast waves. Plus, the unique shape and riding characteristics make it a head-turner, and I get comments every time I'm in the water.

Will from Devon, UK says:

have surfed from slack 1 foot to head and a half plus heavy stuff, excellent all round shape for more chilled surfing styles, perfect for me. only complaint is that the deck dents easily from duck diving etc, having said that the construction does seem to tolerate pretty hefty knocks really well, not a scratch on it even when dropped and duck dived onto rocks. for what its worth i am 6 foot and 88 kg and i happily surf the 5'10'' at a good intermediate standard, i have had a few boards over ten years of surfing and this hits the nail on the head, bang on.
