Hanalei Reponty-Gudang In Neoprene And Barbed Design For Haydenshapes
This is where tech, natural beauty, wetsuits and surfboards gel.
There are few-to-no reasons that’d persuade us from featuring Hanalei Reponty-Gudauskas on this dotcom page. The Tahitian-born “mermaid,” as she refers to herself on her PR Platform, is an organic pleasure. Her blonde hair flows the length of her spine. Her sunkissed skin, long legs, and arms are enough to make old men weep. She’s the wife of Pat Gudang and the muse of this HaydenShapes advert for their collaboration with Hanalei’s neoprene infused swimwear line, Abysse. Oh, she also looks fabulous on a surfboard.
For the first instalment of HS’s “HSSTUDIO Art Release” series, they’ve mimicked a species of stingray native to Tahiti called the pink whipray. Animal fact: The pink whipray can reach 1.8m (5.9ft) across and can grow a length of 5m (16ft). The pattern of this ray inspired the graphics of the Plunder board Miss Reponty-Gudang is seen gliding on this short film.
Enough about rays, designs, surfboards, prints, new aged technology and all that comes along. Let’s celebrate Hanalei, in the moody filter of Haydenshapes playing on a toy in the ocean. Because life is whatever palace you make, and surfing is for those with a desire to live full.
Haydenshapes’ HS Studio is one of the most involved board customizer on the market. It’s the NikeiD of surfboards. If you’re financially unsound and bored, click this link, design a board, add any accessory you’d like and be bold enough to dream. And, if you’re wallet feels fat, there’s no shame in ordering. After all, the holidays are upon us!
