The Q-Skate is a wide square tailed, pointed nose, high volume board with a quad fin set up. It has the signature DVS bottom of a single concave running into a double concave vee and the back half of the deck is concaved, so that your front foot is actually higher than you back foot. The carbon fiber stringer and the concave deck make for a lively tail which responds to your back foot pressure. It‘s ideal for generating speed in small waves.

LCT Technology
Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is a strong closed call foam that is lighter and more buoyant than traditional PU foam. The Advantage of increased buoyancy is added paddling speed and improved manoeuvrability. Epoxy Resin is a healthier alternative to polyester resin as epoxy emits 50-70% fewer VOCs, which means a decrease in harmful chemicals released into the environment. With a little optical highlighter added to the resin XF boards stay whiter! Carbon Fibre placed along the centre of the deck of the deck acts in a similar way to a leaf spring providing storage of potential energy during bottom turns with a progressive release resulting in a smooth transition during top turns.

All DVS surfboards comes in either FCSII or Futures fin system, simply note your preference in the order comments when checking out! Not sure which way to go? Get in touch today!

Dick Van Straalen is one of the most innovative and creative shapers in Australia. A fine surfer, he started shaping his own boards as a teenager and learn his art on the Northern beaches in Sydney in the 1960’s. It was when he moved to Burleigh Heads and started shaping under his own label in the 70’s that he really blossomed. The hollow sand bottom point breaks on the Gold Coast and his shapes were a perfect match, and his down railed, pintails pioneered riding way back inside the tube at Burleigh and Kirra.
