Dick Van Straalen

Dick Van is a classic shaper and surfer from Australia’s Gold Coast. He’s been hunting dredging sand bottom tubes since the good old days and has never stop experimenting with surfboard shapes and designs. He’s been working refining hollow carbon fiber boards and fin configurations with test pilot Dave Rastovich for the past few years and together they’ve been making some cool shapes which push the definition of a modern surfboard.
