HaydenShapes The Shred Sled Review

What the HaydenShapes site says about The Shred Sled:

‘The Shred Sled is a fish design tweaked to be an all-round surfing board. It has a smooth connected feeling that is fast and flowing. Although it may appear to look like a small wave board, The Shred Sled will surf waves up to 6ft in all conditions.

The unique outline allows a full plan shape, yet a wide round tail is positioned behind the wing to give plenty of performance and curve to fit into all types of waves. The wing allows a straighter outline in the center of the board, which provides plenty of speed down the line. The foil has plenty of volume, yet it is shaped to allow the board to sit in the wave face creating a very smooth connected feel. The wing breaks this connection and water flow to give response and release when you want it.

The Shred Sled is Designed to be ridden 4-5 inches shorter and ¾ to 1 inch wider than your average performance shortboard.’

A fuller bodied high performance shape for bigger, better waves, the Haydenshapes Shred Sled feels fast and flows under foot whether you’re surfing a punchy beach break or a nice, solid point.” – Compare Surfboards

All round performance surfing the Shred Sled is a great option for the one board surfer. It may look your your traditional small wave board, but a few design tweaks allows it to light up when the swell gets up to 6 foot.” – Boardcave

Hey guys, four weeks ago I made the brave decision of buying a 5’6 Shred Sled by Hayden Shapes. Knowing that this board may be too small for me, and worrying about other minor difficulties, I was nervous to see how it would perform. But I couldn’t of been more impressed. What a creation by Hayden Cox.” – user Nic Baines on surfindustries.com

The Shred Sled has more width in the nose than your normal short board, and you definitely notice the extra float when you’re paddling around. The tail of the Shred Sled looks a bit different than most boards with a similar wing placement in the plan shape. Behind the wing of the Shred Sled, Hayden put a rounded tail instead of what most are used to seeing behind wings – a swallow tail. The Shred Sled has quite a big of flip in the nose, and enough tail rocker to make you feel loose in the pocket. It likes to be turned, pumped and pivoted in the pocket, not pushed down the line.” – Shred Show
