Hydro Epic — World's most technologically advanced surfboard


Pictured above, it consists of an aircraft aluminum honeycomb shell wrapped in carbon fiber and Kevlar.

The 6'2" stick, made by famed shaper Dick Brewer, weighs — are you ready for this? — just 6 lbs.

It's stronger, stiffer, more buoyant and less ding–prone than the "Old Europe" foam, fiberglass and polyester equivalents riding the waves alongside you.

$850 here.
