The Tribute is a shape designed for the true freeride experience. Built off of a 2.55" continuous rocker line, it carries awesome speed into the wake and all the pop you need. Combined with a variable edge design that rolls from soft between your feet to a sharp cupped rail tip and tail, this board is as quick and responsive as they come. A new feature that strays from traditional Hyperlite shapes however is the Tribute's shorter curved molded in fins. Ending almost two inches from the tip and tail of the board, it's just enough fin to know its there and working but nothing to delay release off the wake. All in all, the Tribute is a great addition to the line, and definitely a shape and a ride Hyperlite has never offered before.
