Dion Agius could pull hi-tech maneuvers on pretty much anything that floats and launches into the air. His new Haydenshapes’ performance shortboard model–the “Raven”–not only performs well above the lip, but it’s also a carving machine. In fact, it was designed to be put on rail, first and foremost.
“Several years back, prior to a trip to Indo, Hayden and I began concepting ideas and developing prototypes that allowed me to work more on my turns,” says Dion about the collab. “These various iterations have evolved quite a bit since the first board – finally becoming the latest version RAVEN. My boards have always been more suited for taking off and racing to try airs – so we began fine tuning this one to be faster than any shortboard I’ve ridden previously, whilst finding a balance between drive and being forgiving on rail.”
