“Untitled” is a lively board that defines speed, versatility and fun. Having a slightly fuller plan shape, this winged swallow tail shortboard has a deep single concave to vee that gets you up to top-speed in the mushiest of conditions. Leaning on that higher tail rocker throughout your turns, on Untitled, you turn with confidence in a very reactive and tight arc. It is a board that can ride a flatter less powerful wave with plenty of paddle, speed and performance, although it will still have plenty of controlled response in a more curved section of a wave.
✓ Untitled has a flatter deck profile along the center ⅓ of the board, which helps carry more volume, giving the design an amazing ability to catch waves, along with added stability when up and riding.
✓ The concaves on Untitled are much deeper than any other board in the Hayden Shapes range, too. This is designed to increase lift in weaker conditions as well as allowing the board to track and plane on the center part of the rail line. In turn, the winged swallow tail breaks this deep concave, releasing the water, bringing a defined pivotal turning point in the shape.
✓ The entry rocker is nice and flat to allow the board to generate speed in average conditions, along with enhancing paddle power. The center of the rocker has a medium amount of curve to help transition into the higher tail-concave. All of this just translates to you catching more waves.
✓ Untitled is a design that will become your go-to performance board in everyday conditions. With ample paddle power, abundant acceleration, top-end speed and plenty of sensitivity in the back third of the board, you’ll probably be wondering where this design had been hiding all along.
✓ Call it your quickest board in mush-surf or your favourite stick in any condition—call it what you will—Untitled is what we’ve been calling our design for guaranteed fun.
✓ 3 Fin Futures set-up.
FutureFlex represents the very latest in surfboard technology and design. The construction process combines a stringerless, high-density custom shaped EPS core laminated with biaxial fiberglass, epoxy resin and a parabolic carbon fiber frame. The carbon fiber frame within the laminate is the key to the performance of these boards. Designed to maximize speed and drive while minimizing twisting, FutureFlex boards essentially store and release energy as the surfer transitions through a turn. The result is a fast and lively, highly responsive surfboard that's perfectly geared for high performance surfing.

ABOUT HAYDEN SHAPES
In 1996 on Sydney’s northern beaches, at the age of 15 Hayden Cox shaped his first string of surfboards from his parent’s backyard for himself, school friends and a few local surfers. Slapped on the top right of each craft, was an ill-formed HS symbol that was soon defined into a well-rounded Haydenshapes logo, thus a brand was created.
