By adopting the following practices, you will ensure your Hayden Board is always in great condition and performing to its full potential.


You will also have a board that will last longer, look better and (when the time comes to buy a new Hayden) will have a greater resale value.

  • Please read ALL warning stickers on tail end of your board to ensure you provide it with the best protection possible.
  • Wash the board down with fresh water after use.
  • Keep out of direct sunlight wherever possible.

At carnivals

  1. Lay upside down (in the shade if possible).
  2. If no shade is accessible place the board under a cover
  3. Wet your board down to cool it every 20-30 minutes
  4. On windy days secure the board down or lay it into the prevailing wind.
  • Always transport boards in a cover where possible. You can store boards in a towel cover, on uncovered in a very cool sheltered area. Foil or towelling covers are available from Hayden Surfcraft. Foil although more expensive provides improved padding and protection.
  • When your board is not being used (eg; in water) always store it out of direct sunlight  in a cool place to avoid discolouration, epoxy softening, delaminating etc.
  • Should you hole or damage your craft wash it with fresh water immediately and return it to Hayden Surfcraft for repairs. We have specialised repairers on the team who will ensure you get a professional repair and are back on the water as quickly as possible.

When transporting your board we suggest "flat" tie downs (or straps) as opposed to rope. Additional padding on your racks can also help. Tie downs are available from Hayden Surfcraft.

  • — Once every 6 months we recommend you bring your board back to the factory for a check up. Where we will inspect your board thoroughly and provide you with a free, no obligation service report.

Should you require any further information regarding this or any other matter concerning Hayden Surfcraft, please call. We would love to hear from you.


Happy paddling,

Hayden Surfcraft Australia
