The "race 18" stabilizer provides excellent raw stability. Designed for longer pumping and downwind riding, the “Race 18” rear stabilizer wing is the ultimate fine-tuned wing for riders demanding extra glide and pump and is especially good for flatwater pump action.
To add some maneuverability, many riders opt to chop down to 13 or 14 inches. This allows you to put the Hyper on edge and turn easier while retaining some pump. Popular model with our team riders who love to chop and experiment with smaller sizes.
For a softer, less locked-in ride, choose the down-sweep tail “the Carve 16” which also makes pumping easier.
Beginners are recommended to use the Carve 16 for Hyper and Flare 14 for Vyper.
