Hybrid Surfboard

Why everyone should own a hybrid surfboard. 

There has been a lot of hype about hybrid surfboards in recent years. But what exactly is a hybrid surfboard and what features make it into one? With so many different surfboard models, it is sometimes confusing why surfboards are divided into different categories. If you really put it together, the hybrid surfboard could technically be a mixture of two or more design concepts. Almost every surfboard is basically a hybrid surfboard. Two surfboards become one. The general hybrid as we know it today is the mixture of the minimalibu or fish surfboard and a high performance shortboard. There are many elements that come together on this board. The goal is to create a board that is easy to paddle, forgiving to surf and fast like a funboard, but still has the agility of a high performance shortboard. The Hypto Krypto from Haydenshapes Surfboards is probably the most famous surfboard on the market. But the concept is not as new as you would expect. There are many hybrid shapes that work at least as well or even better.
