What the brand says
The Hipe is a revolution in the foil approach.
This revolution is not just about inflatable qualities, but to the unequalled performances that the Hipe delivers. It will be almost impossible for you to find a significant difference with a rigid board. Its patented concept is so efficient.
L’Ours’s team has designed a carbon plate that takes all the foil strength. Glued strongly under the inflatable structure, this piece, made of 2.4kg of pure prepreg carbon and two foam stringers, is a jewel of composite expertise. By its design it provides precisely what is needed in terms of mechanics to be as rigid as a classic board, without adding a lot to the total weight.
You have both feet firmly placed on an inflexible carbon support, via the inflatable chamber. The feeling is clearly the one of a rigid board with a comfortable pad. No more, no less. It’s really great.
Tested by the team in all conditions, it has never shown any weakness even in 45 knots. In the light wind, we love its glide on water which is specific to inflatable boards. The round rails and the thick tail boost the start. You take off easily, at least as fast as with a rigid.
