The Hypto Krypto Haydenshapes is a balance of traditional surfing and modern performance. Suitable for the elite surfer as well as the everyday surfer, it is often called the "one board quiver" for its versatility in all types of surf conditions. The Hypto Krypto is suitable for all levels of surfing. For those who are experienced, ride it 1-2 inches shorter than your regular shortboard. For those just starting out, order it 2 inches larger than your everyday shortboard. If you're descending from a longboard or mini bad, order a 6'2 and up.
