The Haka ST is replacing the Haka. The Haka ST is probably Witchcraft?s most allround wave board. Faster and looser than the Haka, the Haka ST is the best choice for sailors who both sail on and side shore conditions. The bottom shape of the Haka ST was also updated, it now has more V in the nose going into double concave into double concave V in the tail. The V breaks the chop and the double concave gives grip. The tail was cut off some 2 cm, making the straps and fins sit further back on the board, making it faster and looser. Combined with the rounder rails, a faster rocker and slightly narrower outline makes that it can handle chop very well. With the straps more back, moving the straps back or forth has even more influence on the boards performance. The Haka ST also features our special pretwisted trifin system, giving less drag, handling more power and a wider variety of angles of attack without losing grip. This link explains it all.
In comparison to the Haka ST, the Wave is more riding orientated, it gets more speed out of the wave and has more grip, drive and precision on the wave. The Haka ST, planes earlier, is faster sailing out and absorbs chop better. The riding style of the Haka ST is more skaty with less grip than the Wave but still good grip compared to most wave boards.
In comparison to the Haka ST, the Shaman is less technical to sail, planes earlier and keeps speed better. The Haka ST is the more radical version of the Shaman: turnier, faster and jumps better.
