Darren Handley Designs


Darren Handleyはオーストラリアの波の豊富なゴールドコーストで育ちました。ここは世界的に有名な波が集中しており、絶えず多くの才能が生み出されている世界でもユニークな場所です。ゴールドコーストの多様な波のおかげで、Darrenは世界で最も反応の良いボードを作る技術を磨くことができました。

DHは世界最高のシェイパーの一人として知られ、3X ASP世界チャンピオンのミック・ファニングや、8X ASP女子世界チャンピオンのステファニー・ギルモアなどがチームライダーとして活躍し、DHの実績は壁に貼られているほどです。




Darren Handley grew up on Australia’s wave rich Gold Coast, a unique place in the World with regards to the high concentration of world famous waves and the talent the coast continually produces. It is the Gold Coast’s variety of waves that has allowed Darren to hone his skills for creating the most responsive boards in the world.

Regarded as one of the world’s best shapers the writing is on the wall in terms of DH’s achievements, including 3X ASP World Champion Mick Fanning and 7X ASP Women’s World Champion Stephanie Gilmore.

DH is not simply a shaper, but rather the complete surfboard manufacturer. At nearly 50 years old, I’m still picking up the sander and working in the glass room, I’m hands on. It’s all about the perfect surfboard, and surrounding yourself with the most skilled workers in the industry, to create that ultimate ride. - DH

Although Darren has paved much of the way for himself, he is heavily influenced by his team riders and those closest to him in the surfing community. No one has passion like DH, and when it comes to making surfboards he has devoted his life to giving everyone the ultimate experience when they ride a DHD board.

DH has dedicated his life to creating the ultimate high performance surfboard, and as an industry leader he continues to set standards for quality and performance.
