Channelling the spirit of surfing’s Golden Age, the Dead Hippie will be among the better-looking foamies on the beach this summer. Available in a variety of fetching colour schemes (Pretty Much Black, anyone?), it has plenty of width and plenty of volume for maximum user-friendliness. It’s a reliable rule of thumb: more foam equals more fun.
The Dead Hippie paddles easily, catches waves no problem, provides a nice stable base for easy pop-ups (not to mention nasal exploration), and locks into trim effortlessly. Whether you're learning to surf or just trying to beat the crowds, the Dead Hippie is insane fun for absolutely all levels.
The soft construction makes this a much safer surfcraft for navigating the dense summer throng, far less likely to cause bodily harm to yourself or others; the recycled materials only enhance the feel-good factor.
All Spooked Kooks softboards come with a free cotton board sock.
