Lightbulb 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.
agree?

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.

Thumbs up HS

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.

?
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
