New Hypersonic?!
Anyone with me?
I had a HS, but sold it because it was too short!
However, I want that board back in production.-BUT only if it can be 235-240 in length.

Agreed, like asking for an old Morris Mini back when you could have a new BWM Mini:)
HS was really good, but that was 6-years ago. Things have moved on.

Actually, many people would prefer the old Morris Mini !!

Good point, my grandad is always saying how good his old mini was:)

HI :-)
Well, Mini Cooper is back!.. In a new MODERN edition... Quite a cool car too! :-)

I cind of hoped that the feelin of flyin, not just hammering along on an iS 111, was something some of us wanted.

Well well, se you on the water!

All the best

I keep one overseas and some sails (to avoid the bstd airlines attitude to windsurfing kit !)
If you only want ONE board for several things (I do some fun racing etc) I still think there is nothing to beat it.

any chance starboard can give the mold to me so i can have a run of hypersonic 111's made for all those who really want one :) ?

I know a lot of sailors who'll disagree with the "flying/hammering" comment (me included). Yes I've spent 3 seasons on a hyper in all wind strengths (often way below and above its comfortable range), and 3 last seasons on iSonics. It was an interesting design when it appeared (2002/3) and it had its plusses, namely HUGE sail and wind range and near-formula angles. But no way I would trade iSonic ride for a hyper now (I refer mostly to iS111 and 122). iS is much more reactive, faster, much better gybing and in my opinion more fun.

Fair winds

I'm interested what do you mean when you say "you can have a run of hyper111's", are you a board shaper/builder? If you are, then it shouldn't be too difficult to take precise measurements of a board.
