JS BLACK BARON 2.1 | HYFY 2.0
THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS, TWIN + STABILISER.
Now in HYFY 2.0 technology – lighter and stronger than ever before!
We loved the Black Baron so much it’s been ridden in every type of wave, so version 2.1 HYFY 2.0 is all about taking the strengths of our first ever twin fin and giving it a wider range of conditions. Like a new fighter jet with a comfortable cruising speed you’re used to maxing out at, the Black Baron 2.1 HYFY 2.0 edition brings the best parts of twin fin flow to even higher quality waves and faster surfing. Like the original it’s equal parts old school speed and new school flair – foam in all the right places to float over soft sections and fly down the line, yet still allow you to lay it on rail or bust the fins even when you’re going Mach 10.
Where the changes begin are in the outline – it’s a stretched out Black Baron, ridden 2 inches longer. We’ve also increased the rocker a touch, and added modern concaves to handle more speed and versatility. It’s a subtle single to double, featuring a “reverse concave” – one of Jason’s favourite designs.
This means it’s a deeper concave in the middle, with slightly shallower concave in the nose and tail to help with water flow for maximum drive. Black Baron 2.1 HYFY 2.0 is the new all-rounder of twin fins. We’ve just added the rear stabiliser and to quote JS, this twin is an EasyRidin’, super gliding twin fin to use in everything from 2ft to 5ft. Featuring a Schooner type foil and rail, so ride it 1/8” thicker and remember approx. 2 inches longer than your Black Baron. Whatever way you go, it’s still all about maximum fun.
WHAT IS HYFI 2.0?
Our unparalleled epoxy technology, HYFI, is a unique multi-layer construction that feels like nothing else out there. Think of it as a futuristic exoskeleton for a surfboard that allows it to be lighter and stronger than ever before, while still maintaining the ideal spring-loaded flex for maximum performance. Now, in the last 5 years since it was first released, we’ve taken everything learned to improve each aspect – the performance, flex, speed, materials used and manufacturing processes.
We’ve also changed the balance of strength – whereas the top and bottom were the same in our original HYFI, HYFI 2.0 construction features a stronger deck. It’s been tested by surfers of all sizes, in every type of wave, resulting in a technology that’s been carefully tuned and adjusted for each set of dimensions we build.
We found the next level of this technology by developing precision engineered stringers, or pins, which are scaled specifically for each board. The size of the pin changes depending on the dimensions of the HYFI, and therefore the weight of its intended rider. The shape of each board’s pin perfectly reflects our goal of making the stiffest part of the board at the centre, tapering out to each end. This results in an even better flex pattern that helps you load and explode into turns.
