The unique wine glass shaped Merlot, is a specific shape that has been designed for fun, small wave performance surfing.

Its most notable feature is the side cut outline that runs from the wide point down to a pronounced hip behind the front fins. When the board is put on rail, the concave outlines are engaged, causing the water flow to follow. This allows the board to draw tight curvy arcs in fun everyday conditions.

The centerline rocker has been taken from the Hypto Krypto design, with the addition of some extra curve in the nose and tail. This is flat which gives great planing speed when not on rail, racing down the line or through dead sections.

The Merlot’s foil is quite forgiving in the front end and quite sensitive and reactive off the tail. The concave runs from a single in the front end, through to a double between the fins, with a late vee in the last 6 inches of the tail.

If the conditions are playful, onshore or off shore – the Merlot is ideal. Its instant unique feel develops and delivers maximum performance in small waves.

The construction combines a stringer-less, 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 vitality of the overall product. Designed to maximize speed and drive while minimizing twist, FutureFlex essentially stores and releases energy as the surfer transitions through a turn.

In what brand founder Hayden Cox views as a more premium alternative to the traditional PU (Polyurethane Polyester) construction, PE combines a polyurethane foam core with high-grade timber stringer, which is laminated by hand using fiberglass cloth and a high quality epoxy resin. Haydenshapes opts to use Epoxy resin, PE construction for two key reasons. One, the optically superior brightening ingredient significantly enhances the whiteness of the board. Two, our exclusive epoxy is more flexible than polyester and maintains the lively flex pattern typically associated with a new board.
