The Wasp is a swallow tailed, fish type shape that is quad fined and it has a sting in its tail. Its bottom configuration is a single concave in the front, going into a double concave vee in the tail and the deck is concaved in the back half, so you are actually standing in it and not on top of it. It has a flat carbon stringer which gives the board spring and allows the tail to twist under pressure. Very unique.

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.
