Cypher

On Shore / Lightwind Riding

5.4” x 19” I 5’6" x 19 1/2” I 5’8” x 20” I 5’10” x 22 3/4”

Description

The 5’4” combines the performance of a small wave surfboard with an incredible throw around factor.

The 5’4” features a concave deck for low center of drive and improved strapless performance.

The 5’6” is the perfect all-round performer; the medium volume ensures great performance in a diverse range of onshore to cross-onshore conditions.

Ideal for medium to heavier and lightwind riders, the 5’8” absolutely rips while having enough buoyancy for paddle surfing up to an advanced 85 kg rider in small surf (up to shoulder high).

The 5’10” has a unique design pushing the envelope of extreme lightwind wave performance by allowing you to ride aggressively in the most marginal conditions.  At the same time, the 5’10” Cypher has wave engineered heritage which ensures significant crossover surf potential.

 

Active available only in 5’8 and 5’10

Cypher TECH

  • FLYING V

    FLYING V

    The Flying V bottom shape featured in the Cypher improves directional stability and control, while simultaneously improving rail-to-rail carving. This is achieved through a unique Spiral V through the planning area of the board with a flat tail section to help the board to snap through the last part of the turn.

  • ACTIVE TECHNOLOGY

    ACTIVE TECHNOLOGY

    The Key to the Active Stringers strength is the stiff and ultra lightweight carbon I-beam through the center of the board. This prevents the board from over flexing and damaging the laminate when flexing beyond the working range. The secret to the Active Technology flex is the high memory polypropylene layer that allows the full biaxial carbon skins to flex and compress within the working range. The combination gives a perfect blend of maximum flex with maximum durability.

  • FLYTECH III BAMBOO

    FLYTECH III BAMBOO

    The Flytech III Bamboo comprises of a dual sandwich hi-density standing area, with a full bamboo sandwich deck, this ensures strength and lightweight in the standing area. The bottom deck features the innovative new Bioflex bamboo sandwich. The unique bias orientation and bamboo combination creates the most flex possible in a wood sandwich.

Tips from our Board Designer

Cypher

This board is ideal for riding strapless, you can shuffle forwards in light wind and when going upwind and then widen your stance and move further back when riding. Because of the wider tail and the amount of hip on the Cypher, you need to move your back foot, and your center of gravity, quite far back to snap off the top.

One of the benefits of the surfinz box is that you can move the fins closer together (forwards/backwards) and this has quite a big impact on the Cypher. Try the fin in the center positions and then move the back fins backwards, and the front fins forwards if you would like to increase directional stability. Do the opposite if you would like to make the board more loose.
