Hello Ruben
Was wondering if you have tried the 7’4′ as a 70-75Kg rider.
Many thanks

Many many thanks for reply. I surf on the channel coast so pop up peaks are the normal. Choppy conditions usually mean stability is key and a sub, 30″ board tends to have poor lateral stability in those conditions. If you have any ideas for a wide 30″ but short short board would love to know.

That Raptor, way to wide but the 7’4′ Hypernut – that seems a good option only 1 litre more that the 7’2′, but 2 inch wider. Hummm, swap the fins for 4’5 front and 3’7′ rear and that maybe a cracking option. Would love to see a review from you on the shorter hypernut. For what it’s worth Reuben, great reviews – I have another request do you have any reviews for a longboard style SUP but for the lighter rider. The only board I could find is the 9’6′ 117 litre jimmy lewis blacknblue, ok its 28 wide but… Read more »

Hi rueben, great web page first. Im looking at getting another sup to go with my currant board ( loco 9 5 ).l like the look of the hypernut after watching your review of the 8 6 model but think it would maybe be to close to my loco. Ive been suping for 2 years now ( advanced windsurfing and ok surfer too) and can paddle onto unbroken waves every time and bottom turn well and am getting ok on the top turns. My loco feels very steady and not that lively so im looking for something with a bit… Read more »

Dear Paul
For what is worth you might, if you can find one, check out the old airborne range that starboard used to do…. awesome boards, based on your skill level the 7.10 If your looking for a shorter but stable board. Personally prefer lateral stability at 30″ in the mush rather than lower width. The 9.5 loco is wave catching monster, so go shorter. The airbornes 7.10 is sub 100 litres, 98. Or go with a shorter board with a higher volume.

Thanks for the advice reuben ive managed to demo a 8 6 hyper nut on a small clean day at hayling and couldnt belive the stability of the board ( thought it was as stable as my loco) and how quick it makes its speed. Not as easy to catch waves on as my board but didnt take long to adjust my placement to catch them no probs. Think its close to mine in size as you said so the smaller boards would be great . Thanks again

How does this compare to the starboard Hypernut 4 in 1?
