DUNE

Dune is a set of emotions, passion and know-how. We are careful to craft our boards a unique way for them to be top-notch on the market. Our creations are designed to help you overcome your limits, defeat your fears, and discover new sensations.

The rider/shaper synergy allows the Dune boards to offer an outstanding ride.

Universes

Human team

Mathieu

Mathieu Taxy

Founder of Dune // Figueras (Spain)

More than 20 years ago, Mathieu introduced his first "skimboard" to the market, and since that moment he has not stopped improving his creations. His composite material engineer background, his extensive experience in the industry, and his close relationship with the different manufacturers of materials allow him to stay up-to-date on the latest technological developments. All this is reflected in his boards.

His rider team is responsible in testing the latest models, because he is not a waterman: his real thing is to spend hours in his workshop honing his techniques and come up with your future Dune board.

Laurent

Laurent Lozes

aka lo2 // Bordeaux (France)

Skimboarding is not limited to only one shape, and Laurent knows it. He designed the Lola and the Dick models, and quite a few prototypes. Each new design is a combination of intuitions he gets while riding on his favorite shorebreak of Cap-Ferret. He leaves it to Mathieu to turn the boards he imagines into reality.

Besides being an unusual "rider", Laurent is also a self-taught graphic designer who created the Dune logos, as well as some digital-arts. He is such a great source of inspiration, and helps make Dune a brand aimed at both technical and aesthetic innovations.

Oliver

Oliver Campoy

Málaga (Spain)

Oliver lives two steps away from many surf spots, and he can practice all year long in top conditions. His numerous sessions allow him to test out the latest developments of the Dune skimboards in all conditions, and approve them before starting production.

Oliver helps the brand spread out with his photogenic and unique style. He teams up with Diana and her camera, who captures every moment everywhere he goes.

Djool

Julien Gaspard

aka Djool // Annecy (France)

Djool lives in a privileged place: Annecy, where you can enjoy the lake in summer, and the mountains in winter. He is used to boat-generated waves more than natural, ocean waves, and thus prefers riding on the lake, which makes sense. Competitor at heart, he goes for a ride on the lake as soon as temperatures allow it, in order to develop his style and manœuvres.

His motivation and perfectionism help Dune improve its wakesurf boards continuously.

Manera

Miguel Angel Manera

aka Manera // Ampuriabrava (Spain)

Some people say that Manera spends his whole life in his shop, but they are wrong! As soon as the wind blows, he likes sailing in the Bay of Pinks, with or without tramontane wind.

He dares to go riding in all weathers, always calling for more. His experience contributes decisively to the development of the Dune kite boards.
