Bondi bred Haydenshapes fam member Pama Davies recently hit Indo with Paper Sea Quarterly and his new threads sponsor Pt Nemo.
(Have you seen this brand yet? Please do check it out here.)
Indo serves up some of the best, so a good set up is non negotiable. Let's discuss Pama's gear in detail, with commentary from Hayden on sizes, shape choices and the why's / why not's from L to R.

Love Buzz FutureFlex - 5'7" x 18 5/8" x 2 1/4"
"Pama likes to ride his general shortboards with flatter rockers and a fuller volume which stems from getting used to riding these types of boards around Bondi. His Love Buzz model is shaped at 5'7" x 18 5/8" x 2 1/4" so he can stand right over the rocker and volume. You will notice how smooth his surfing is between moves, where he allows the board to generate the speed, which is one of the by products of riding flatter rockers."
Love Buzz PE - 5'7" x 18 5/8" x 2 1/4"
Art: Matte Gloss / Olive
"For the PE version, it is really about the choice of foam and how that feels under your feet. The PU foam will feel a little more dampened on those days where there is more power or texture on the wave face. It also looks pretty nice with the matte / gloss sanding detail."
Black Noiz PE - 5'9" x 18 1/2" x 2 1/4"
"The Black Noiz is a board that all our team are riding when the waves get a little bigger. Designed with a continuous rocker and smooth rounded pin tail outline, it is a board that will have plenty of hold and rail line drive on those bigger days. Having a little more curve to work with helps Pama keep his turns powerful and tight in the pocket. It is a board that is very well suited to those better days in Indonesia."
