Hiro- I wanted to take a little break from posting here, but with this news ... don't you think the bow looks like a V 1.

They clain it can be paddled as an OC1, with an outrigger and a removable rudder. Why would on add an outrigger to this ?
As for the V1 comparison, goodwaka could tell you that it's not since you sit on top of it... and not inside ;-)

at least they come with nice colors !

I don't know what to say. Ian is sure persevering with new designs in the sport of paddling give him credit for that. But...yeah! All of that other stuff.

Maybe soon we can buy these off the shelf at Dicks Sporting goods.

Im going to wait until a chined version comes out because I dont like getting left behind on those big days.....

Wow...he invented a way to go slower in all three sports. Awesome.

My kids would like it...if it was made of durable plastic.

Appears that HYPR has'nt capitalised enough on the fact that it is a 'Hawaiian canoe'.........since it can be fitted with an outrigger

Its a joke ,right ?

why buy this if you can pick up any 30 old sailboard that will out preform this in any possible use ,and paddling it kayak style seems like trying to dislocate the shoulder due to the width of the board

So that's a 4in1 : sup, surfski,oc1 AND dislocating shoulder device...

It looks like a fun TOY for the kids!

I think it's kinda cool - looks like fun - especially for the beach rental market..

#11 Tue, 02/10/2009 - 3:42pm

I checked out the Hyper website and did'nt see anything like that.
