VANDA SURFBOARDS.

AGE: 38

SHAPING FOR 20 YEARS.

Vanda – as he is known on the Surf Coast – is a real surf frother. Since meeting Vanda, he has been the most interested and creative guy when it comes to talking surfing. Referring to days surfing as iconic and pushing hilarious skits from Pointbreak and the rest. An all-time legend. Vanda has been shaping boards out of his place in Jan Juc for 20 years and has been loving it. We got the opportunity to sit down with Vanda and talk boards, surfing and the wave pool.

LOCATION: JAN JUC.

HIGH PERFORMANCE MASTER.

FULL RIPPING THE BOWL.

Around here it’s has to be winki, it is just such a fun wave, sometimes fast down the line and the next day sick for doing airs, you just know you’re always going to score some waves out there. My favourite wave in the world has to be Sunset Beach Hawaii. Just something about sitting out there on a gun you’ve made yourself watching mountains of water come in, looking back onto the hill above the North Shore; the waves you catch there are burnt in your memory for life, it’s a magical place.

I’m absolutely so looking forward to surfing the pool, can’t wait, I really think it’s going help me personally progress my surfing ability, it’s going be great for breaking those flat spells we get, just to know there always waves on tap a quick trip up to the pool will be so cool,
