this is poster #8.

i have no idea what i am talking about when i say "have a run of hyper 111's made" . i assumed if a board builder had a mold then in wouldn;t cost that much to make some. if these boards aren;t made in molds then i would guess the cost would be to high to make them custom.

cheers

By all accounts the HS96 was the one to go for.

I had bot a HS11 and a HS133, as a fattie (95kg) the 133 always felt more comfortable

I tried 96, 111, 105, 125
IMO the first generation 2003 boards are mush better than '04
'03 105 wood is my choice, love it
to me the best board for moderate wind/chop

please someone correct me if I am wrong , but I don t think that making a copy of an hypersonic should be that difficult... maybe time consuming but not that difficult. 2 ways:

1/ bring it to a shaper who will be able to make templates to replicate scoop, outline and concaves.

2/ there may even be prototyping shops ( not necessarily windsurfing companies, just a company that specializes in digitizing items for ex) with a 3d scan -> bring the board there, get a 3 d model made, then get that to a shaper that has a 3d numerical lathe (ideal). You ll get a blank that is a perfect replica, you ll just need to get a shaper to strat the board properly.
