When surfboards become art
This is guest Story by Christian Csillag.
We were so blown away and honoured by the beauty of his surfboard that we asked Christian to explain us the background of his beauty. Here's the story:
In the summer of 2017, I had the great fortune to meet two wonderful people during holidays in southern Spain. One of them, Carlos Andrade Leal, owner of Waterman surf school, now a good friend, introduced me to his friend Dani Vila, a local surfboard shaper. Although I was a surf beginner at this time, the surfboards made by Dani Vila immediately mesmerized me. The passion with which Dani Vila designs the boards is fascinating and unique.
Every surfboard is a true work of art! You can see them on Instagram (#danivilashapes).
This board was built in the summer of 2018. The bottom shows a great aerial view of the ocean surf.
On the top Dani Vila has already used the "Front Deck Grip" by RSPro.
But I still needed wax for the slippery spots. Now I have extended the upper surface with the Hexa Traction Grip by RSPro. I'm looking forward to the next surf session
Thanks Christian. Amazing surfboard
