Love my dead hippie! It rides so smoothly and has received many compliments on the beach as it's SO pretty!!
Feels much more stable than other foam boards I've tried, and just generally feels like higher quality - I can see this board lasting a very long time! I really love that it has proper fin boxes too - I've found the plastic fins on most other foam boards split when they're tightened (but if you don't tighten them properly they let a tonne of water in!).
A little more expensive than other foam boards on the market, but I think well worth the price for the quality & the reduced environmental impact
Finally tried it today, it’s such a fun board. I’m only learning but was very easy to catch waves and it seems more agile than other boards I’ve tried. From my beginners experience - absolutely love it!
Great looking board feels nice and surfs how I expected, great for myself to take out on a small summers day and my two kids as well , great to learn on.
The box turned up a bit beat up but the board was fine inside.
The only issue I could find were fin screws were extremely hard to get through to bite down on the fins needing a proper allen key to get through.
Love it! Boards a heap of fun. A good time on small days, took it out in 6ft yesterday and it handled it surprisingly well. I will say the centre fin was so bent out of the box for whatever reason that I replaced them with another set straight away and when it arrived it already had small dings all over the board, the box it came in was pretty beaten up I'm assuming that's the couriers fault though. Cheers
Really great easy to ride board1
Great service guys! Ordered my board on a Friday, it arrived the next day in perfect condition! Can’t wait to take it out and give it a try
Dead Hippie 7’0”
I bought two of these for my kids and they are great. The team at Spooked Kooks made sure we got the boards in time for our holiday and were super helpful. The boards are great quality and fun to ride and it feels great supporting an Australian company that is doing the right thing for the planet. Can’t recommend them enough.
This board is so sick, i'm loving it and so are my mates. its super fun and paddles so sweet great fun board.
As a wannabe surfer chick, I bought this board based on the aesthetic and sustainability credentials. The board is so fun and even as a complete amateur I managed to stand up on my first wave! Love that it is made of recycled materials but also looks great. The owner Tom is a legend and helped me out setting the fins up.
Amazing board - just what I wanted
Great board, good volume for beginners. Nice design!
Perfect for a new beginner and also for kids. Love it!
Loving the new board. Very
Loving the new board.
Very easy to ride for a beginner like me
Amazing super fast shipping and great board
I’m addicted to my Dead Hippie. I’ve been surfing most of my life. But had back surgery this year and have struggled to load, carry and surf on my much loved 9ft Mal. I did my research and bought the 7ft Dead Hippie. Love it so much. Catches everything. Turns beautifully. So much fun. Strap it to the side of my Vespa and take it to Manly every morning.
So much fun!
Paddles easily and easy to go on rail. So manueverable! I though it might feel heavy and slow in the water but it’s really responsive!
Lot of fun in three foot waves this week. Thanks spooked kooks!
Amazing surfboard for the beginner :+1::skin-tone-2:
I have had so much fun with this board. It's so versatile and super easy to get going with. Looking forward to getting a few more waves with my Dead Hippie! :)
Sooo happy with it! Too bad I’m a kook myself on the board but I’m obsessed with it
Love it- great for beginners!
I am definitely a novice/beginner surfer and managed to get up on my first day in whitewater. My friend bought a softlite board and although both boards are great, we both agreed that the larger width of the dead hippy was easier for stability. Caught my first baby green wave this weekend on it. Really happy, would recommend!
My new Dead Hippie does exactly what I hoped it would do. Let me have a lot of fun cruising in smaller or fuller waves. Easy to paddle, looks amazing and love that it is 100% recycled. Thanks Spooked Kooks.
Rides like a dream!
I have not received my fins
I’m a beginner and this board is great fun to use and easy to get up on. I have no fear of the board getting damaged or hurting me when I fall off and it is usable in any surf. Definitely worth the money considering the minimal environmental impact it has.
Super fun board.. easy paddling gets heaps of speed in small waves and on fat high tide waves the DH flys through flat sections & turns were you want to put it...Perfect summer shred sled.
a stoked Dead Hippie
Really nice board to use. Lot of volume. Efficient delivery etc. Pity there was so much plastic packing but I guess all boards are sent that way. Hope SK make a 6ft6in. Would recommend the boards without reservation assuming you can afford to pay a little more. well done SK!! Hope you can use even more recycled material
Love this board, well made and really good shape.
