Retail Price €1,900 / $2,100
|Board Type||SUP Surf, Longboard SUP|
The Hipster Longboard is by design a very different board to the Style Lord. Evolving from the much loved Hipster Twin, the bottom contours and outline were stretched into the longboard variant.
The single concave runs from the nose all the way through the board which feeds into a double concave towards to the tail with a slight Vee running out the tail.
This produces a lot of speed and lift when you initiate a rail, with the double concave softening the single concave between the feet through chop, accelerating water flow and exhausting water out through the tail.
With the line drive which comes from a longer board, customers have exclaimed they’ve made It around sections they would have never made before.
When you step back to the tail, put the board on rail and start to drive, is where this is a longboard in a league of its own. Full speed accelerating shortboard turns built into a longboard. The carving sensation is also enhanced with super fine sensitive rails blocking out through the tail.
Nose riding is unaffected with the loss of the larger single fin, with the larger side fins being ample to keep you tacking whilst “up the front”.
