Product Description


Hyperlite and do-it-all waterman Brian Grubb teamed up to create a signature board for him to call his own. The Shim is ideal for intermediate to advanced riders looking to blend skim and surf styles together in a versatile hard-charging shape.


Brian Grubb can do it all. He’s had pro model wakeboards, wakeskates, and now he has a wakesurf board to call his very own. With the help of Scott “Butch” Bouchard, Grubb and Hyperlite teamed up to create a next level hybrid design that seamlessly blends surf and skim style together.

A fast rockerline creates speed with ease and helps carry momentum into those skim style maneuvers. Mellow channels throughout the tail reduce drag drag on the water and let the rider dig deeper into those bottom turns and slayshes. The blended rail design combines a full rail profile with sharp edges that bridges the gap between surf and skim style boards.

An eva traction pad throughout the entire top deck allows the rider to lower their landing gear anywhere on the board after those high flying skim tricks. Equipped with Futures Fin System, snappy surf turns are possible thanks to these high-performance fins. Built with Hyperlite’s dura-shell construction, this board features an eps foam care but it is far less prone to dings and cracks than other high-performance boards.

Can’t decide between a surf or skim style shape? You don’t need to! The Hyperlite Shim delivers the best of both worlds in this all-new hybrid design.

Hybrid Wakesurf Board

Hybrid Style

The name says it all… a hybrid shape is a blend between the two most popular board styles: surf and skim. The goal is simply to offer the best of both worlds, the playfulness of a skim style board and the high speed maneuverability of a surf style board.


Thruster Fin Wakesurf Board


The most popular fin setup for good reason. The two outside fins give the rider the ability to generate speed down the line while the center fin offers stability and control. Also, it can be rode as a single or twin fin too. Excels in almost all conditions.


Diamond Tail Board Shape

Diamond Tail

A hybrid of a pin tail and a squash tail, this shape carries speed very well and makes tight turns look easy thanks to the shortened rail line. Not only does it look cool, it performs great.
