Greg Payne owner, Extreme Boardriders since ‘95
Currently one of the most in demand and best selling surfboards globally, 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.

It has a high amount of volume under the chest, which enables it to paddle like a dream. It’s designed for surfing on the open face, to draw fast flowing lines.

The outline resembles an old school twin fin in the nose, yet it draws back to a tight rounded pintail. The wider straighter outline up front creates plenty of speed, yet the round pintail allows tight turns in the pocket.

The foil has plenty of volume around the chest and center area of the board, yet it refines out to a thinner, pinched rail to keep the board connected to the wave.

The rocker is flat throughout, although holds a little extra lift in the entry, which helps when taking off late or turning in the steeper sections of the wave. The design of the rocker is focused around speed, to enable surfers to make sections that 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.

Determined to create a surfboard construction that moved at a more rapid pace, was more lightweight and as well as responsive, came the invention of technology FutureFlex (formally known as FiberFlex). The custom surfboard design, which is shaped out of high density EPS foam with a parabolic carbon fiber frame, creates a high energy, rapid spring back resulting in ultimate speed and drive.

 After handing the new concept over to long time friend Tom Carroll to test drive, just hours later Hayden was back in the factory researching a Design Patent. It wasn’t long after that FutureFlex and the unmistakable black carbon rails had reached global market acceptance and was being licensed out to the world’s major surfboard brands.

With boards now stocked in over 72 countries, Hayden who was recently compared to a “hip quantum physicist,” by Surfing Magazine (USA), recently opened a second Custom Manufacturing operation and Office in Los Angles, California his first, currently located on the Northern Beaches of Sydney, Australia.
