The Coreban hyper is a fantastic addition to the fleet of boards in my shop. I got the opportunity to demo it on some knee hi surf yesterday, not what we hope for but it’s all we’ve had here in FL for the last month or so… It is super loose as a quad, and lots of fun! This board is super easily to do floaters and hit the lip. I found that you have to kind of be in the lineup with the surfers, but what a different ride! If you are looking for a super high performance trick board, this is it! At 7’0 long and 30″ wide it is surprisingly insanely stable, I am about 170 lbs. I can’t wait to get this thing in some big surf as a thruster, it’s screaming to do big airs! As for kids, this would also be a great board, it is super light, 16 lbs in pure range, so they can easily handle getting the board to and from the water. If you are getting your little one started young, this would be a great fit. Visit http://www.coreban.com for more information on the entire line of Coreban Boards.
