Holy Grail HOLY GRAIL /ˈhəʊli ɡreɪl/
The Holy Grail is a model that sits a little above the Hypto Krypto in terms of ability to perform tight critical moves in the pocket. It is a board that your average surfer can ride and catch a lot of waves, but experienced surfers can also push this board into some very high performance waves and maneuvers. It has been designed to take that Hypto surfer on a journey with their surfing ability, still maintaining that flow and run the Hypto has but reducing the surface area in the nose, as well as using some inverted outlines late in the tail to bring some very responsive curves and feeling later in your turns. It can ride all types of waves from flatter faced waves to steep faced waves.

HOLY GRAIL BY HAYDENSHAPES MODEL OVERVIEW The Holy Grail Outline has been designed to bring more performance with a better fit in the tighter areas of the wave. This is achieved by narrowing the nose width but extending the length of the rail line ahead of your front foot, giving you a longer or greater connection for carving but added curve to ensure it will fit in the tighter curves of the wave. Bringing more surface area to the tail area of the board was also introduced to increase planing speed in smaller flatter waves. The key feature of the tail plan shape is the side cut (inverted outline) which introduces a aggressive curve to the rail line of the board affecting your surfing when on rail and late in your turns. This contrasts the flatter rocker profile which is designed to give a very fast and continuous speed profile to the board.
The Holy Grail Rocker has been design to ensure it retains the speed and familiar feel to the Hypto Krypto using the same large radius or flatter curve (for continuous speed). The increase in tail lift has been designed to compensate for the wider block on the tail plan shape. It’s entry rocker is very similar to retain the best paddle power, although there is added curve 12” back from the nose to improve the fit in the tighter curves of the wave.
To summarise, the Holy Grail is a performance board that is ridden shorter and wider than a traditional performance design, it has plenty of volume throughout the board to ensure it can paddle easily, along with a lot of flow when surfing off the front foot. Although it is shorter, wider and more carries more volume, the design does not sacrifice any performance or response off the back foot for when you line up those great sections or waves.
