Dead Kooks Hellhound Review

What the Dead Kooks site says about the Hellhound:

‘A new take on the Tracker plan-shapes of old. The Hellhound has been an ongoing evolution within itself. Years of refinement have got it to where it now stands. Soft hull entry blended to a flat spot through the center with gentle single concave to Vee out the back. Wide point pushed forward and tight pintail or winged pin. An all-round performer in a vast array of conditions, the Hellhound can be surfed from knee high to double over-head. Built for forward trim, high lines, tight arcing turns and enjoys hollow waves more than most, with the tight tail locking in when you need it most.’

What people are saying about it:

“Favourite board at the moment is my 7’0 Hellhound. Tracker inspired, teardrop shaped singlefin. That is my go to board from knee high to well overhead.” – Eden Saul on

“Bought that 7-0 and man is it fun! Thx” – surfyjpc on Instagram

“After doing some searching online, I came across the “Hellhound” model from the guys at Dead Kooks in Australia. I like how the Hellhound has the wide point pushed forward and the wider nose.” – migum on

“The Hellhound is a rework of the Tracker-style single fins that bloomed in the late 1960s, with a rolled-nose entry and a ten-inch flex fin built to enhance speed…” – Linsey Rendell on

“I want one of those Dead Kooks Hellhounds for big, clean Blacks.” – SourCreamWater on
