Meet the Craftsmen: Dylan Surfboards

Dylan as a brand have a reputation that proceeds them and so we were thrilled when they decided to be part of the GVSCo family! (available here)

Dylan Longbottom starting surfing at 6 years old in Cronulla, Sydney and shaped his first board in 1999, and still happens to believe it was the best board he has ever ridden! He is now based out of Bali. Mainly because Canggu is one of his favourite places to surf, has all kinds of waves and the community is so close, vibrant and they love surfing!

His brand has grown in popularity throughout the years and they were even chosen to be the brand used in the 2015 version of Point Break. They had to make up 20 different boards for the production and were ridden by Dylan himself and Laurie Towner throughout filming.
