so the hyperlow was born under a star and a yellow motivated sun.. blinking by some blunt nose and a bat tail corious special handshaping, has deep nose concave running almost half the length of the board fading into rolled Vee of the tail. is excellent for knee-waist, Just grab your outside rail when the wave’s going to close out and push really hard. The fin releases itself (usually, unless its a huge fin) and you start riding backwards in the whitewash. Just walk up towards the center of the board and you’ll start to spin back.
the glass job was worth the xtra $$$

The nose concave provided additional lift that would hold the nose up when weighted by the rider. The concave also added drag having the effect of slowing the board down so as not to outrun the section. These extended the length of time you could spend perched on the nose.
The bat tail
The bat tail performs like a swallowtail. Its two outer pivot points and the addition of the central point of the wing provide greater stability. The battail is good in smallish to overhead waves and is one of the more modern surfboard tail designs.
The flatter board sometimes called “traditional” allows the water to flow more freely under the board, and it tends to trim, or glide, better. A flatter board will usually have a solid feeling when walking it because it’s not pushing water.
