Hobie Deadly Flying Glove Review


What the Hobie website says about the Flying Glove:

‘Inspired by Corky Carroll’s 70’s era single fin, the DFG is a great board for any surfer. It’s a flatter rocker board with single concave up front going into a deep vee with double concave right off the tail. The DFG is ideal for the average crossover longboarder looking for an easy riding, fast and responsive shorter board. This board is also excellent for experienced shortboarders looking to find a different approach to turning and speed on a wave.’

What people are saying about it:

“That is one fine stick.” – user floatcaptain on Instagram

” This is the ultimate single fin 2+1 shape from the classic Hobie line. Shaped by one of the current master shapers holding down the bay Sean Bailey, this swallowtail single fin has lots of volume. A great old school option for a bigger dude – guaranteed to catch tons of waves and glide down the line like only a sick single fin could.” – Bay Street Boards

“This board never ceases to amaze me… Fun waves at #Bowls today…” – user gui108 on Instagram
