Vulcan Surfboards came to life through the mind of surfer, shaper, author, 3rd generation artist, and California native Dane Hantz.
Dane has worked one on one with the most influential figures in the modern era of the surfer/shaper. Never before has one man influenced and likewise been influenced by such a broad range of talent from around the world. Dane is regarded as 'the perfect storm' for the most comprehensive understanding of surfcraft design principles, artistic presentation and alternative construction technologies available today. Vulcan designs are widely recognized for effortless paddle, aggressive thrust and immediate acceleration.
"A magic board isn't just a great shape, it's a union of great material construction and desirable aesthetics as well". Vulcan is an amalgam of artistic and technical perfection, consecutively voted Best High Performance Shortboard Design by the Boardroom International.
