Year In Review #5: Haydenshapes x Wasted Talent

Originals December 26, 2021

Few things more exciting than a fresh bit of fiberglass, right?

Put it under your arm and then balance it on your toe so the nose is eye-level and you don’t dent the tail. Look at that wax-free sheen. Feel those sans pressure dent decks. Daydream of all those ones you’re going to be sneaking into behind the peak.

The anticipation. The under the arm feelz. The compliments from friends, served cold with a slight garnish of envy “That thing looks pretty fun.”

The short-lived fury of misplacing a tail pad by a milimetre. The first coat of wax. The three-week flat spell that will invariably follow your purchase. Some experiences and tribulations you’re maybe a bit more familiar with considering yesterday’s festivities? Perhaps for the lucky few!

When HS picked up the phone against the backdrop of a global pandemic and the ensuing surfboard shortage that followed earlier this year, we were as they say, ‘stoked’. So much alignment! After a good old-fashioned Swedish Smörgåsbord of ideas, we settled on a Muted Pink Cohort, and a murdered out black-on-black Untitled. Both featuring signature artwork from our summer collection.

Custom made in Mona Vale, Sydney, Australia, surfed and approved by Messiers Anderson, Craig and Agius, Dion. A limited run of 24 that yes, do look pretty fun. We hope you’ll agree.

A rare few are still available exclusively from Wasted Talent boutique…
