Dane Hantz is a dichotomy. Creative and regimented. Thick-skinned and sensitive. His board designs are whimsical in concept and yet precisely engineered. His old-school work ethic and stringent business practices have developed a core following of customers, while his embrace of technology, social influencers (i.e. @boardporn), and photography has exposed Vulcan Surf to a worldwide audience. In today’s episode of Shaping Surfing, Dane shares his values, his design theory, and demystifies commonly held misconceptions about surfboard design, construction, and the surfboard business. Enjoy!
