Mark Phipps Yo surfboard 6ft 6 FCS II - White
Every once in a while one of those magic surfboards emerges that as a serious surfboard retailer makes it impossible to ignore. The Phipps Yo is one of those 'must-have' sticks which the team here at Boardshop thought we'd better investigate further.
Phippsy designed and developed the Yo to be one of those go-to, everyday boards that you never leave home without; a board that'll perform in a wide range of conditions for a pretty broad spectrum of riders.
The Yo's pleasing outline resembles a traditional single fin (the original custom was a 2+1) except the tail pulls in to a rounded pintail which gives it plenty of hold in larger and steeper waves and allows the board to pivot much faster and tighter in and around the pocket. The Yo holds some extra volume under the chest and in the traditional "beak" nose which gives the board plenty of down the line speed and some projection in less than perfect surf conditions. Equipped with a 5-fin set-up, the Yo is equally happy as a quad or thruster making it a brilliant travel companion and dare I say it the ultimate one-board-quiver! Lock in your quads when you need some extra speed or some hold in the barrel and swap for your thrusters when you want to draw some big arcs on the open face.
Get the sizing right and the Yo will work for pretty much any surfer. Intermediate shortboarders will appreciate the Yo's forgiving outline and volume, and the seasoned traveller will relish the Yo's performance in most of the conditions he'll encounter on his travels.
Mark Phipps has been 'mowing foam' for nearly as long as he's been surfing. He started shaping and first picked up a planer under the wing and careful guidance of Wayne Lynch and Greg Brown in the famous Gash factory. Mark now divides his time between his home town of Point Lonsdale in Victoria, Australia and France. This allows him to make the very best of the surf in both locations, keep his finger on the "surf" pulse and keep in touch with the travelling pros who love his unique custom made shortboards.
If we don't have the Phipps surfboard you're looking for, or the stock dims don't work for you, just give us a ring on (44) 01243 674250 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll happily discuss a custom order for you.
The Boardshop team are absolutely stoked to be stocking Mark's amazing shapes and would happily consider taking your old or unwanted surfboard as a trade-in against a new Phipps surfboard.

Overall Customer Rating
Darren Broadbridge (reviewed 14/02/2018)
Anyway I had 3 boards , 6 1 devil ( Bradley ) 6 2 Player ( Bradley ) and a 6 4 Phipps Yo which I had imagined was my step-up.
It’s actually a hard wave to paddle into, so I started surfing the Yo from the go as there was swell. As it turned out it went the best of all three boards even when it was under 3 ft and onshore ( which is was for nearly 5 days unfortunately ) as its quite flat through the front end and had the wide point v’eed forwards it is just so easy to surf and get speed on. As the tail is a nice pin it turns really good with speed . it just seems to go good in everything unless it’s really bad or no walls.
I ended up surfing the Yo more than any other board I'd had in ten years, as it just kept deliverg fun, and i could surf it with my eyes closed.
