2004 Hyperlite Premier 136 DNA
When Danny Harf was asked what he wanted to do with his new shape, the answer was more aggressive and explosive. A series designed for the next generation of wakeboarding is the connection between different riding styles and rocker lines for the water's ups and downs.
Back in 2001, we shaped a board that combined the explosiveness and rail-ride style of Byerly's line with the freeride fell of Murray's - Born was the Premier. After winning X Games back-to-back year and understanding characteristic of his deck, for 2004 he decided to make some changes.
Danny made his new ride 1.25" wider in the tip/tail for the extra snap off the kicker without sacrificing edge-to-edge response. The Premier now has deeper molded-in fins that are 3" longer. As we went to a wider profile, the new, bigger fins maintain the Premier-style edge into the wake with moderately fast speed. We removed the full-length tunnel in the bottom of this new board for quicker release and more control on rails.2.6" Subtle three-stage rocker - A division between both rocker lines combining speed and an abrubt boot off the wake.Deep, step-down rail helps the board hook up harder through the water. Wide tip/tail profile rolls over smooth and stands up higher over the wake for a greater kick. Cupped rails give a slightly more responsive grip into the rail-ride turn. Two 0.8" P-Wing machined aluminum fins designed for a quicker overall release and a moderate feel on the water. Four 1.0" deep molded-in fins similar to the Byerly fins for a style of riding that relies more on the outer rail. Vented channels create a faster feel on the water.

this board is amazing. i rode two earlier premiers before this one and this one was to die for... so if you liked the old premiers, youll love this one.

This board is amazing, I’ve been living with a 2001 fluid, so this step up is insane, the pop is great, it is so light...it’s rediculous, and the pop you get is just rediculous, definitly pulled my first tantrum today, pretty stoked.. Highly reccomend this board.

I Really like the overall of the board, The Ride, the Feel, The Pop, the landings...only thing is the base material. The New Jib base is real tacky and not as durable as it should be for calling it the jib base. You can push with finger pressure on the edge and bend into the base. This board would be the ultimate with the normal base material. Last I had both the 03’ Parks 138 DNA, and the Premier 135 DNA, The premier was my favorite but warranty gave me the 04’. Can’t complain with that I guess, not that I am.... The Premier Rocks! Just if your planning on hitting sliders...get the biolite, and don’t expect the base to last long.

Once again Hyperlite has outdone themselves. This board is sick!! My friends gave me a hard time when i bought it because it is pink but i saw them change their minds after i had my best ride ever. There is nothing more that u could ask out of a board then to just be a Premier. Cus they rock!!
