Hyland Single Fin

$850.00

This is the Hyland single fin, named after Tim Hyland who won two Burleigh single fin classics and was influential in this design. This model combines old school single fin principles with modern design features to create a board that works in all conditions. It feels like a thruster but looks like a classic single. The two key design features that make this a great modern single fin are: two deep channels on each side which run into flyers or well-defined wings. The deep channels create drive and hold on the rail and the flyer provides a distinct break in the rail line, or pivot point, allowing the board to turn a lot tighter than traditional single fins. Unlike the old school singles where the thickest part of the board was under the chest, the thickness distribution of the modern Single is fairly even. Traditional single fin boards tended to be great in bigger waves, but not very reliable as allrounders. The even distribution of the modern Single helps deliver versatility in all conditions, especially the smaller grovelly stuff. I grew up on single fins so have been fortunate to combine this experience with modern shaping techniques for high-performance thrusters to produce a single fin that looks traditional but feels modern.
