STEPHANIE GILMORE, DHD DX1

Steph is an amazing surfer and really fit. This is a tiny board but she's been riding this board for a long time. She's a graceful, stylish surfer and has won Snapper a number of times, it's one of her home breaks so she knows the wave really well.

Steph's style is a point break, standing up quite high waiting for sections and she's quite a patient surfer. The style and technique that she has really suits the south-east Queensland and northern NSW waves and this board compliments every part of her ability.

THE LOWDOWN

This board is popular amongst the professionals. It's got lots of single concave throughout, and lots of rocker, but it's been finely tuned for Steph's style. The DX1 is the number one selling high-performance board by DHD catering for most conditions for the advanced surfer.
