Von Sol is the new brainchild of accomplished surfer and designer, Sean Mattison. A former U.S. Surf Champion and Assistant Coach of the U.S. 2009 ISA World Championship Team. Sean is also known for his role in bringing Hynson Surfboards back into the limelight and the development of the extremely popular Black Knight Quad series (a collaboration between Michael Hynson and Sean Mattison).
While serving as chief board buyer to one of the largest retail chains in Southern California, Mattison was appropriately dubbed “Lord of the Boards” by Surfing Magazine based on his extensive knowledge of boards and design. Sean was largely responsible for fueling the fire behind the fish revival of the last decade.
Von Sol represents the culmination of Sean’s career as a professional surfer and visionary in the surf industry for more than 25 years. Working with a team of talented surfboard craftsmen, Von Sol is the beginning of a new movement.
Sean adds, “at the forefront of design, you’re not inventing a new recipe; but rather functional performance shapes are about the precision with which you perfect the recipe so all the ingredients work in harmony.” Catch The Vision.
