WHAT IS HYFI 3.0?

HYFI 3.0 is our next major upgrade to stay on the cutting edge of surfboard construction, utilising everything we’ve learnt from both HYFI2.0 and CarboTune, revolving around a full carbon bottom and rails. For HYFI 3, this provides even better strength and longevity of performance. The main components are: EPS core Unique multi layered epoxy & hybrid fibres Engineered carbon stringers Full carbon bottom and rails Innegra deck reinforcement This new combination of layers gives you a snap back and lively torsion, so as you lean into a turn it’s always loading up and projecting you forward. For any weaker conditions requiring surfers to create their own excitement, it’s the best we’ve made yet.

SCALED ENGINEERING

We first built these scaled pins for use across the HYFI2.0 range, and after overwhelmingly positive feedback, we’ve continued with the same scaled pins in the deck of each HYFI 3. We found the next level of this technology by developing precision engineered stringers, or pins, which are scaled specifically for each board. The size of the pin changes depending on the dimensions of the HYFI, and therefore the weight of its intended rider. The shape of each board’s pin perfectly reflects our goal of making the stiffest part of the board at the centre, tapering out to each end. This results in an even better flex pattern that helps you load and explode into turns.

RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

We discovered a lot throughout construction of the 100% carbon boards which became CarboTune. It’s been tested by surfers of all sizes, in every type of wave, resulting in a technology that’s been carefully tuned and adjusted for each set of dimensions we build. That means your next best board ever is made in HYFI 3. “The next step was to combine the two. Strength, stiffness and response of the carbon, combined with the spring of HYFI.” JS “What I really, really like about this construction is just how easy it is to surf. The spring and reaction time. With CarboTune, the harder you surf it, the more you get out of it because of the extra stiffness. As for these, you can just surf it at 60-70% and you still get so much benefit.” JS

“It’s addictive. The carbon is so addictive, you ride it and you feel this spring back you’ve never had before. And you want more.” Luke Egan “It has that X factor for me. This is your WRX, if you wanna get somewhere fast this board will get you there.” Joel Parkinson

Xero Gravity

OUR PERFORMANCE ALL-ROUNDER. NEXT IN LINE OF OUR FAVOURITE FUSIONS EVER.

Xero Gravity is the next in line of our favourite fusions ever. Ridden the same dimensions as your Monsta Box, with the same magic rocker, this will be your all-rounder even more geared to high performance surfing than the updated Xero, which in comparison has the slightly flatter Blak Box rocker and a fuller outline. Xero Gravity also features a similar foil to the previous Xero, with foam hidden in the deck, but a slightly pulled down rail that’s fine tuned for manoeuvrability & quick response.

We’ve streamlined the range while keeping all the nuance and specialised qualities you want to have a board model for every type of wave. Want a super groveller? That’s the Sub Xero. A more performance-oriented option to handle flatter conditions? That’s the new Xero, now even closer to your original Blak Box. And for a performance all-rounder – that’s right here, the Xero Gravity.

It’s our direct update on the board that won QS and CT events in the type of conditions we all surf every day. And it was voted the Australian board of the year back-to-back, due to overdelivering in countless sessions for regular surfers in average to pumping waves. If the Monsta Box made you enjoy surfing more, Xero Gravity will send you to the moon.

XERO GRAVITY

WAVE TYPE

2-6ft, or waist high to well overhead. Great in many conditions from crumbly, flatter wave faces to good quality surf with hollow sections. The rocker has been proven over time to be the most versatile in the x-series.


XERO GRAVITY

Features

Rocker

Medium low entry and exit rocker, with a large sweet spot under front foot.

Fin setup

The Xero Gravity comes stock as a thruster. Alternative setups are available with custom orders.

Glassing specs

Boards 5'6" - 5'11" glassed standard with 4 oz. deck x 4 oz. bottom. Boards 5'11" - 6'4" glassed 4 x 3 oz. deck and 4 oz. bottom. 6'6 and up glassed standard with 4 x 4 oz deck x 4 oz. bottom (All sizes come standard with Hybrid Fibre tail strips)

Rail type

The Xero Gravity has medium full rails, the same as the Monsta Box. This forgiving performance based rail shape allows for precision when the right section stands up, yet has enough volume to get you through fat sections or avoid catch in chop.

XERO GRAVITY

CONCAVE

Slightly deeper concave than the Monsta Box giving a greater sweet spot, deep throughout for greater lift, suiting smaller / less powerful conditions. Single concave under front foot moves to double concave between the fins. Based on team favourites, JS chose to go back to his “reverse concave” which is deeper under front foot and shallower at each end of the board. We found this to be the fastest of them all, as it creates maximum water flow.
