Hyperlite Shim 5.3 Wakesurf 2020
The Hyperlite 5.3 Shim wakesurfer is perfect for intermediate to advanced riders looking to take their skills to the next level.
IDEAL FOR ANY QUIVER, THE SHIM DELIVERS BOTH SKIM & SURF STYLE CHARACTERISTICS.
SIZES: 5'3" | 18.2 L
The Shim has a fast rocker that allows it to carry speed anywhere on the curl, and its shorter profile makes it super maneuverable for rotational and air tricks. This new shape also features our all new DuraShell Technology which combines the buoyancy and feel of a high-end EPS board and the durability of a compression molded shape. Overall, this new board is the best of all worlds and one that a wakesurf enthusiast can't pass up.
Our fiberglass is available in 3 weights depending on the board. Over time, traditional woven glass fibers will separate. With layered glass every Hyperlite deck will have the same pop off the double up year after year.
