Hypto Krypto (3 fin) – Hayden Shapes
The Hypto Krypto is the most versatile shape in the Haydenshapes range, enabling it to be ridden in waves from 1ft to 8ft. It paddles like a dream due to the volume and flatter rocker. You ride the Hypto Krypto on the open face, drawing fast, flowing lines with all the speed it provides.
The outline resembles an old school twin fin in the nose, yet pulls into a rounded pin tail which will give you plenty of hold in the bigger stuff, and provide a lot of curve around the back foot. You can use the wider, straighter outline forward on the board to give you speed down the line and the rounded pintail to draw tighter arcs in the pocket.

Love Buzz – Hayden Shapes
The Shred Sled is a fish design tweaked to be an all-round surfing board. It has a smooth connected feeling that is fast and flowing. Although it looks like a small wave board, the Shred Sled will surf waves up to 6ft in all conditions. The unique outline allows a full plan shape, yet a wide round tail is positioned behind the wing to give plenty of performance and curve to fit into all types of waves. The wing allows a straighter outline in the center of the board, which provides plenty of speed down the line. The foil has plenty of volume, yet it is shaped to allow the board to sit in the wave face creating a very smooth, connected feeling. The wing breaks this connection and water flow to give response and release when you want it.The rocker is flat in the belly, giving the board flowing speed, yet it kicks late in the nose and a little in the tail. The deep single concave in the front end of the board blends into a double vee out the tail behind the front fins.Designed to be ridden 4-5 inches shorter and ¾ to 1 inch wider than your performance shortboard.
Psychedelic Germ – Hayden Shapes
The Psychedelic Germ was designed when Warren Smith said to me he wanted a signature board model that was different and unique. So I took the Shred Sled model and added a displacement hull concept that I had been working with Tom Carroll and Andy Dovell on in a tow board project. I also put in some side cuts (concave outlines) inspired by the “Winterstick Swallowtail”, which are situated from the wide point of the board down to the wing. The displacement hull softens the water flow through the entry of the board when planing through choppy water, or through the lip of a wave. The side cuts shorten the radius of your turn, meaning the board will draw a tighter arc for how wide the board actually is – resulting in the board feeling more responsive when on rail. The rocker is flat in the belly, giving the board flowing speed, yet it kicks late in the nose and a little in the tail. The deep single concave in the front end of the board blends into a double vee out the tail behind the front fins. The Psychedelic Germ is a board that can riden in all conditions up to 4ft. It is fast, responsive and easy to ride.
