The surfboards in this group are made for average sized waves and for recreational surfing. These surfboards catch waves easier than the typical shortboard. With there wider outlines, the hybrids and eggs are not as "snappy" as a shortboard, but offer a smoother, more drawn out turn. Hybrids and eggs are really fun for the average surfer, as well as those with years of surfing experience. These surfboards work very well using epoxy foam construction and are also much easier to carry around, due to their lightweight character. Greg Sauritch is a San Diego surfboard shaper that shapes many different hybrids and egg surfboards.
