He is a real success story for the northern beaches starting his surfboard shaping business aged just 15 while still at high school.

The keen young surfer broke his first board, couldn’t afford a new one so got himself work experience at a local surfboard manufacturer and learned how to a shape a board. By the time he finished school he was making two or three boards a week and had his own website.

Now Haydenshapes is based in Mona Vale and has an outlet in the US.

In 2017 in the Man of the Year Awards Mr Cox won man of innovation and his surfboards have won surfboard design of the year for three years.

Mr Cox launched FutureFlex in 2006 creating carbon fibre frame surfboard technology, his signature look is monochromatic black and white and his boards sell in more than 70 countries.

More recently he wrote a book called New Wave Vision and has been invited by Westpac to come up with wearable paywear.

Mr Cox and his creative wife Danielle have owned the Pittwater property Los Paloma for four years. The four-bedroom home on Barrenjoey Rd with 180 degree views of Pittwater was the first sale of the year in Palm Beach. The couple paid $1.8 million for the two-storey home and according to it sold for between $3 million and $3.5 million.

An impressive view from the house.

Noel Nicholson, of Ray White Prestige, said the home had unobstructed views from Stokes Point to Mackerel Beach and had been crafted with natural materials and organic finishes.

“The premier location enjoys the very best of the village lifestyle that’s pure Palm Beach – a five-minute stroll to The Greedy Goat Cafe and Sandy Beach on Pittwater – a few steps further to restaurants, boutiques and the ferry wharf,” he said.


There have been at least five sales in Palm Beach this year already with Sydneysiders looking for weekenders not too far from the eastern suburbs and north shore.

“People are time poor and they see value in Palm Beach which is just one hour from the CBD,” Mr Nicholson said.

“Why buy a place in Huskisson or Blueys Point with that travelling distance? A weekender in Palm Beach they are more likely to use,” he said.

Hayden and Danielle Cox want to stay living on the northern beaches.
