IDEAL FOR ANY QUIVER, THE SHIM DELIVERS BOTH SKIM AND SURF STYLE CHARACTERISTICS
The Shim is perfect for intermediate to advanced riders looking to take their skills to the next level. The Shim has a fast rocker that allows it to carry speed anywhere on the curl, and its shorter profile makes it super maneuverable for rotational and air tricks. This new shape also features Hyperlite's all new DuraShell Technology which combines the buoyancy and feel of a high-end EPS board and the durability of a compression molded shape. Overall, this new board is the best of all worlds and one that a wakesurf enthusiast can't pass up.
+ Hybrid Style
Toss some buckets with some smooth, linked turns inspired by your favorite saltwater surfer. Traditional surf shapes have a thicker profile and a mellower rail/bevel allowing a rider to pivot a turn more from their back foot and are best ridden with either a deeper fin or multiple fins. Riders usually apply more pressure on the back half of the board and generate more force through a turn. Still very capable of doing tricks on and off the water – just with a fluid like feel.

+ Scott "Butch" Bouchard Technology
Scott Bouchard entered the shaping scene as an innovator with a background rooted in surf. His unique take on the three-stage rocker helped riders like Byerly and JD get more pop off the wake when wakes were small. His passion for sourcing new materials and creating new construction methods has produced some of Hyperlite’s bestselling models.
+ Layered Glass
Hyperlite's fiberglass is available in three weights depending on the board. Over time, traditional woven glass fibers will separate. With layered glass every Hyperlite deck will have the same pop off the double up year after year.
