Smik Hipster Twin V2Regular price $2,399.00 Save $-2,399.00
The Hipster Twin is just a case of history repeating itself. It’s almost impossible not to notice the performance that’s evolved from twin fins in the surfing world, with many of the biggest brands having one in their range and all carrying the heritage of the original Mark Richard design.
It's how it all started for us, a set of Mark Richard twins with a little nubster fin laying around and thinking how perfect a twinny would be for a SUP, helping loosen things up a bit.
With its fuller nose and moderately compact shape, the Hipster Twin allows you to go shorter with added stability and glide. It doesn't feel awkward to paddle over large distances.
Mark Richards was onto something combining the hip in the outline with the 2+1 fin set up as it allows you to draw unparalleled tight arcs without letting go or losing speed.
The single concave feeds through a double and releases to a V out the tail to give a frictionless sensation of acceleration and drive coming out of a turn. Rail to rail transitions are some of the smoothest experienced, and the way the Hipster Twin feeds up the face makes everything seem easier.
It just feels like there’s a lot less drag, which equates to a sensation of speed. You really notice it when you put the board on rail and see it accelerate.
All of this results in longer surfs just because you’re just having way too much fun. It’s as simple as that.
SMIK hasn't re-invented the wheel on this one, but we've done a pretty fine rendition of it.
Hipster twin V2
After extensive testing it was finally possible to find some subtle yet significant changes to the original Hipster twin which has proven so popular by all that have tried.
Still carrying the characteristics that made it so popular initially being a stable board with excellent speed and on rail turning capabilities, it’s just been ever so slightly tweaked.
Outline from the hip forward is slightly straighter to give more control in waves with more power. (Without detracting from its small wave abilities.)
Deeper double concave which reduces rocker in the middle of the concave while leaving the rail rockerline unchanged. (enhanced acceleration and speed)
Tail V has been moved further forward further enhancing it’s already remarkable smooth rail to rail transition and ability to project more vertically.
So whilst the imitators try and replicate the Hipsters success, SMIK raises the bar even further.
Smik Hipster Twin LongboardRegular price $2,599.00 Save $-299.00
The Smik Hipster Longboard is by design a very different board to the Style Lord. Evolving from the much loved Hipster Twin, the bottom contours and outline were stretched into the longboard variant.
The single concave runs from the nose all the way through the board which feeds into a double concave towards to the tail with a slight Vee running out the tail.
This produces a lot of speed and lift when you initiate a rail, with the double concave softening the single concave between the feet through chop, accelerating water flow and exhausting water out through the tail.
With the line drive which comes from a longer board, customers have exclaimed they’ve made It around sections they would have never made before.
When you step back to the tail, put the board on rail and start to drive, is where this is a longboard in a league of its own. Full speed accelerating shortboard turns built into a longboard. The carving sensation is also enhanced with super fine sensitive rails blocking out through the tail.
Nose riding is unaffected with the loss of the larger single fin, with the larger side fins being ample to keep you tacking whilst “up the front”.
Hipster Twin Longboard is Short board performance turns infused into a longboard.

Smik Spitfire V3Regular price $2,399.00 Save $-2,399.00
The Smik Spitfire V2 ground breaking design incorporated the combination of speed, manoeuvrability and firepower. This made it a formidable fighterplane and a much loved British icon with it’s beautiful lines.
Smik has adopted the name Spitfire, as these boards boards carry the same attributes. Beautiful lines that create powerful, tight turns that contain and project speed.
The spitfire has evolved with some subtle changes that have made a considerable difference. Rocker has become a more continuous curve over it's previous incarnation, which has resulted in a faster livelier ride.
Rail profile and volume has also been slightly altered with mid section volumes remaining similar but tail rail volume being thinned out a little bit. (Without compromising stability or becoming too knifey at slower speeds)
Outline curves have also altered slightly with the hip being brought a little further forward to more between the feet, but not being pulled in too much in the nose making the board unstable.
Blah Blah Blah.....So what does all this mean?
Well. Ultimately she's smoother and faster, with just a really nice balanced feel from paddling to turning to stroking into a wave and that lovely initiation of rail sensation that doesn't have any hiccups.
But then when you push, the response and performance is enhanced. From small little gutless waves and generating speeed, to being able to contain solid southern oceran groundswells, the spitfire is a more than capable all rounder.
