A hybrid surfboard
combines the best characteristics of a few boards making them highly versatile. , The hybrid surfboard design takes advantage of fish design elements such as extra volume, which helps with flotation and stability while still taking notes on the performance characteristics that are borrowed from a traditional shortboard design. The extra volume on these models are ideal for those average to below-average surf condition days, yet versatile enough to excel in head-high plus waves. Simply put, a hybrid surfboard is built for surfers who want a high wave count and lots of performance features from several shapes in one package.
