The Hyperlite State 2.0 is a board meant for a new rider, a board that is very easy to use and maneuver. The State 2.0 is built with an asymmetrical sidecut, which will make the toe-side carving much easier. this helps the rider get comfortable carving across the wake and learning toe-side airs. In addition, Hyperlite also has molded in two fins and placed a removable fin in the middle of both the tip and tail. These fins help the board track towards the back of the boat, giving you a sense of control while learning to ride. You can remove the middle fin on either side if you want to make the board feel a little more "loose" on the water. The Hyperlite State 2.0 is great for the beginner rider.
