HAYDEN SHAPES...NEW MODELS COMING SOON!

Earlier this week, Hayden Cox came in to say g'day and show us some of his new models. Two that really stood out were The Ando and the Psychedelic Germ ( Warren Smith, Dane, Jordy and Ando love this board!). These two boards are very different from one another, but would go well together in anybody's quiver. We are expectiing delivery of these in mid May...I know it seems like a while to wait, but they'll be here before you know it! Make sure you check the footage of Dane riding a Psychedelic Germ down in Mexico. Have a read below and see what Hayden has to say about them...
The Ando The Ando is Craig Anderson’s signature all round shortboard. Craig likes to ride this board 1-2 inches shorter and 1/4 inch wider than his Ando All Star model. This allows the board to feel super sweet under the feet and fit in the curve of everyday waves. The rocker is flatter through the center to give plenty of speed and flow. The tail of this board is a squash tail that is almost round, which feels smooth yet loose when needed.
The Psychedelic Germ 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 on with Tom Carroll and Andy Dovell for a tow board project. I also put in some side cuts (concave outlines) inspired by the “Winterstick Swallowtail”, Mick Mackie and Matt Biolos, which are situated from the wide point of the board down to the flyer. 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 board has also been designed to surf small fun waves up to 4ft. It has a flat rocker through the belly of the board with a little kick in the nose and tail. The Psychedelic Germ is a board you can ride in all conditions up to 4ft that is going to be fast, responsive and easy to ride.
