P5 Hammerhead and Hypsta thoughts?


Recommended Posts

I found a deal on both these boards that I couldn't resist and decided to buy them both.  I haven't ridden either, but my plan is to keep the one I prefer and sell the other one and then buy a new Soulcraft surf style.  I am 6'0 210 intermediate rider and I bought the 55" Hammerhead and 54" Hypsta.  I would have preferred to buy the 53" HH, but that wasn't avail for the sale price.  Anyone have thoughts on these boards?  I have found a few comments both good and bad about the HH, but can't find any on the Hypsta.  Also, any fin changes worth doing?  I have XXX skim, and some older Inland surfer boards, but I was in dire need of something new.  I'm more excited about getting a new surf style, but no one is giving any deals on those.

I think the 55" HH was the right choice for you.  I am 185lb 6'1" and went with a 53" last season.  I believe the specs recommend 53" up to 210.  I have two riders in our group that are at 210 that can certainly ride my board but it's a constant balancing act for them.

I love my hH, it’s a great board. I switch between the smaller fin and the larger fin ... huge difference ... almost 2 different boards.

been working on my transfers and spins on the small fin.

can say enough good things re a phase 5 boards, though I have been recently riding a concave bottom custom board from my marina owner that is killer...

@Brodie what did you think of the Hypsta?

My whole family loves it, along with everyone else that has ridden it.  I sold the Hammerhead to my buddy, since they are similar, but the Hypsta is better for kids and lighter adults.  It is a really fun skim/hybrid board.  It spins really easy, and is easy for beginners.  I don't ride it much, as I prefer to ride my Neo, but it is fun.  We run it with all 3 fins (1" side fins and 2" center), and it is still plenty loose.
