STYLE: Directional Surf Thruster
SIZE: 5’8” x 20”
The new Cypher surf shape completes the 2013 three-model Airush surfboard lineup. The Cypher shape is dedicated to onshore and lightwind riding and playful punting. The Cypher is convertible from a tri- to quad-fin setup, and the Surfinz box setup lets you move the fins away from or towards the tail, which can change the way the board snaps into a turn, holds an edge and pushes upwind. With its wide nose, lightweight construction and rounded outline, the Cypher planes up early and is stable and easy to ride. If you’re a lightweight rider, you will want to go with the smaller-sized Cypher, as its wider shape can get bouncy in chop and higher speeds. The Cypher’s lightweight construction and balanced feel make it ideal for strapless punting off the lip.
The Cypher fits well with the new-school freestyle trend in surf riding. The grab rail is handy for carrying the board to the water or grabbing during airs. Any rider looking for a new-school onshore, surf punter can turn to the Cypher for reliable performance in real world conditions.
