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.

Meet the Craftsmen! SBS Boards

Introducing Snell Brothers Surfboards.

SBS are a surfboard design company that are based in the South coast of the UK and have been developing surfboard & SUP designs since 2010. They are a small company but they have big dreams!

As brothers being brought up by the coast it was natural that the water became our second home and after surfing for many years throughout the UK and the world, they started to find themselves becoming more interested in board design and changing/developing the boards we had. So a natural progression was then to start to modifying their own surfboards and experimenting with designs to suit the varied surf conditions on the south coast and the rest of the UK, so after few years of research, design, prototypes and testing sessions later, they have found their designs to not only be some of the most responsive and easiest to catch waves but with great durability, style and great value. One of SBS’s key concepts is to push and pursue new, modem designs & shapes that reflect the new school style of surfing as well as testing materials to match the 21st century surfers needs.

They  keep in touch with all of their customers & take on any ideas for improvements to create the ultimate boards..
