The Haydenshapes Psychedelic Germ is nicely built board with new technology to progress the surfer through a variety of different surf conditions.
Board Dimensions: 6’4″ by 20 1/4 by 2 5/8
Volume: 34.52 Liters
Fins: Futures Hayden Shapes HS2 Mediums
The Pro: This surfboard is embedded with different type of technology to help the everyday surfer. The side cuts on the board made for easy maneuverability as long as the correct fins are applied and moving up down and through the wave is a breeze. The boat like hull on the bottom of the board is claimed to break through the choppy water more efficiently than traditional shortboards. We are happy to report the hull design did make for a smoother ride whether you’re riding glassy mornings or windy afternoons. The combination between using the Polyurethane Polyester and the Epoxy resin makes the board strong without sacrificing weight. We been riding this board for a while now and there are no pressure dings.
The Con: This board is no longer available on the Haydenshape website so good luck surfing craigslist to find one. This board design does take a few surf sessions to get use to if you surf a traditional shortboard as the dimensions of the board differ.
Overall: The Psychadelic Germ by Haydenshapes is a great board and it catches lots of waves. With the high quality material used it’ll outlast those traditional fiberglass boards. We recommend these Haydenshape boards if you’re looking to change up your riding styles or catch more waves.
