What the HaydenShapes site has to say about the Love Buzz:
‘Love Buzz is a performance shortboard, described as the ‘Love Child’ of the Hypto Krypto and The Ando model. Hayden’s latest model addition to the range, this model is a favourite of team rider Creed McTaggart and spent more than two years in development. The design blends surface area, rocker and performance curves to create a very all-round, fast and flowing short board. It will always carry speed yet give you that sensitivity to surf in all areas of the wave.
It has a medium / flat entry rocker for easy paddling and plenty of speed down the line or through flatter sections. It has the signature HS flatter rocker through the center of the board for flow and speed, similar to the Hypto Krypto. Out the back end it has a medium lift to allow the board to fit into critical turns.
It starts with a slight single concave in the entry through to medium single in the center of the board. This blends into a deep double within the single, with a medium vee double out the last 3.5” of the tail.’
What people are saying about it:
“It takes a big, steep drop with ease & loves to fly or cruise down the line. It also feels like it can twist and turn on a central axis, not just off the tail. The intricate bottom contours in combination with additional tail lift, help to turn this board hard and make it lively and responsive. Hayden pays attention to the fins used and understands the importance of fins to the performance of a board. Future fins HS1 are perfect for this board” – Benny on CompareSurfboards.com
“Picked it up a few months ago, first surf in waist to chest punchy beach break was incredible. Board stuck to my feet, paddles great, fast but lots of control. Best board under my feet since my New Flyer (felt very similar actually). Rode it a few weeks ago in large, hollow OBX and it was a bit too fast and light for the power and texture of the wave. It is my go to in anything from thigh to a bit overhead but I grab my Mini Driver when it gets beyond that. Great, great board that stays in the pocket better than the hypto and, frankly, seems a better all arounder.” – Dave Jacobs on CompareSurfboards.com
“Bought a Love Buzz after falling in love with my Hypto Krypto. I ride it 2 inches longer than my Hypto. Mine is in future flex technology and it really has a lively flex pattern.
Especially coming out of turns where a lot of boards tend to slow down. The Love Buzz actually speeds up and throws me through the turn with tons of speed. Its like cheating makes me surf better than I do.” – Doug on CompareSurfboards.com
