Shaun Murray and Greg Nelson agree that a solid foundation greatly increases a rider’s learning curve. Hyperlite introduces the Venice, shaped specifically for creating that base and solid foundation. The Venice has a wider overall profile built atop a continuous rocker, delivering a smooth carving board that gets more pop off the wake due to its increased surface area. The Variable Edge Design is forgiving between the inserts but then sharpens towards the tip and tail, providing the strong edge hold necessary for generating speed into the wake. The Venice is simple and both Murray and Nelson believe that “Less is More” in their shared shaping philosophy. The centre of the base is clean, clean water flow creates a smooth ride and softer landings, the dual tunnels easily allow water to enter and exit at the Venice’s tip and tail. Hyperlite’s Satin Flex ensures the board responds quickly and lands softly, making you feel at ease on the Venice.
