HYPTO KRYPTO WINS USA 'SURFBOARD OF THE YEAR'
The Hypto has gotten the top nod again except this time it has won Surfboard of The Year in the USA (a very tough get) and we are ecstatic. The coveted trophy was presented to Hayden at the recent SIMA Image Awards, an annual event honoring surf industry brand achievements in the US. This marks our second ‘Surfboard of The Year’ title in 2015 - having also been awarded the same honour on our home ground, Australia, for the past two years running.
Breaking a 7 year winning streak in this category previously dominated by one brand at the SIMA Awards, this is the first time Haydenshapes were nominated and have won in the US - so we are pretty excited to say the least. The Hypto Krypto is now 3 X Surfboard of the Year winner.
“I’m so stoked to see Haydenshapes win Surfboard of the Year at this years SIMA Awards. It's a huge highlight not only for Haydenshapes, but for myself personally. I just want to say a huge thank you to you guys, our customers from all around the world, our retailers, our HS team and friends, family and industry that support us. Not many people know that I have been running Haydenshapes for nearly 20 years and started it when I was 15 and still at school - I've been dreaming up this stuff since I was a kid. As a shaper, you are always designing boards for other people but the Hypto Krypto funnily enough was actually something that I shaped for myself back in 2007, then for Craig Anderson soon after who still rides it today and gets covers on it.” – Hayden Cox.
