How do I define my new RIOT shape, it's a faster more tuned version of the original shape, I promise you'll love it! -Noah Flegel The completely redesigned RIOT takes all of the characteristics of the original and super charges them for an even faster and more responsive ride! The new shape utilizes cleaner base features and the thinnest edge profile produced to date to generate a fluid feel across the water and insane speed when on edge.

BIOLITE 3 CORE
The secret recipe we have been perfecting since day one. This core material is the gold standard in the industry and used throughout our line. Biolite 3 is our lightest and most durable formula to date.
ABRUPT CONTINUOUS ROCKER
This rocker line adds a little more kick to the speed that so many riders look for. The Abrupt Continuous rocker line transitions to a slightly exaggerated tip and tail rocker, creating added pop without sacrificing speed into the wake.
MOLDED LANDING FEATURE
Design feature/shape dispersing water on impact for softer landings.
TIP TO TAIL CHANNELS
Channels running tip to tail delivering added traction and an aggressive feel on the water.
Integrating the top and bottom fiberglass layers into one. Generating a more durable board on side impacts to prevent delamination.
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.
DUAL CONCAVE BASE
Channeling water into two streams through the fins and out the tail allowing for a fast and loose feel.
CONCAVE TIP / TAIL BASE DESIGN
Shaped in the tip & tail only, this limited concave base provides added board control.
VARIABLE EDGE DESIGN
Edge shapes that differ from tip to tail, most commonly shifting to sharper edges near tip & tail from a more forgiving, rounded or beveled shape under stance.
Delivers a more secure fit of the bolts to the inserts, improving bolt retention keeping binding hardware locked down.
