Ho’okipa Point, Maui is a long right hand point break. If you get there early, and if it is firing, Daylan will not be hard to find. He will be one of the standouts. Not one of the bodyboard standouts…just one of the standouts. His high-speed tactical approach is second to none. Snaps, floats, banks, slashes…he has the complete arsenal at his disposal and his trusty sled under the knee.
"One of my favorite dk moves is going up to a section and throwing the tail. It’s an indescribable feeling to direct all that energy and feel that power and release and control all at the same time. As Bruce Li said, “Dragon whips his tail.” Growing up in the 90s, I watched a lot of videos of Paul Roach and Aka Lyman. With their blend of speed, power and style, they were and still are the two most inspirational riders for me. I hold myself to that same hight standard and feel there is always room to go faster, push harder and get better. That’s the fire that keeps me charged up 100% in every session. I borrowed elements from some of my favorite shapes of the past when creating this model. I used to ride small rounded nose boards but for myself, I found a little wider nose helped draw out clean lines. This board is fast and responsive, and if you want even more speed and stability, throw on some Vektors. The Dragon is my perfect drop knee sled and I have heard quite a few people like for prone also. I hope you find your next level of riding with the Dragon as your weapon of choice.” - Dylan Saniatan
