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 which 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 Tributes shorter curved molded in fins. Ending almost two inches from the tip and tail of the board, its 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 defiantly a shape and a ride Hyperlite has never offered before.
