Hayden Shapes 5’2 Hypto Krypto GROM EPS Future Fins
The Hypto Krypto GROM is a small variation on Hayden’s best selling 3-fin model, and while the shape remains the same, the grom model allows the board to be surfed by the younger and smaller rippers.
The Hypto Krypto is a balance of tradition and modern performance. Suited to the elite level surfer to the everyday surfer, it is often referred to as the ‘one board quiver’ for its versatility across all types of surf conditions – from small 1-3 ft beach breaks, to barrels of up to 8ft.
The Hypto Krypto continues to be the most versatile shape in the Hayden Shapes range. The outline resembles an old school twin fin in the nose, and when combined with a high amount of volume under the chest, enables it to paddle like a dream and support rider acceleration off the front foot.
Through the back the outline pulls into a rounded pintail creating a lot of curve around the back foot. This not only provides plenty of hold in the bigger stuff, but also allows you to draw tighter arcs in the pocket. The foil also refines out to a thinner, pinched rail to keep the board connected to the wave.
The design of the rocker, which is flat throughout with a little lift in the entry, is focused around speed, enabling surfers to make sections they don’t normally expect to make. The concave runs from a rolled vee in the entry to a slight single, blending into a vee double out the tail, which gives the board great speed and control from rail-to-rail.
Overall the Hypto Krypto is a one-stop board you can ride around the world having fun in average conditions, as well as taking to the barrel and the open face when the swell pumps!
