Bantu x DVG Shortboard Range

Surfboards - $600.00

Bantu has teamed up with master shaper Dave Van Ginkel (DVG), of Cape Town Africa, to design and build a new range of high performance shortboards.

The boards are "all rounder" shortboards, suitable for waves between 2 and 6 feet, stock dimensions range from 5'10" to 6'4", and the boards come standard with squash tails, FCS thruster setup, single concave under the front foot, double concaves between the fins with subtle vee out the tail.

We LOVE to make custom boards for our customers too - get in touch to spec and order yours!

DVG widely regarded as one of the finest high performance surfboard shapers in South Africa, with some of the best big wave surfers in the world trusting him to shape their boards.



Serene yet chaotic; untouched yet urban; ancient yet modern, dreamy yet very real, rich, poor, old, new, sacred, sexy, wise, fast and funny - Africa: cannot be contained.


Since its birth, Bantu has been Made In Africa, by Africans, sustainably & fairly, and that will never change.

What is changing is Africa...


With over 1 billion people, more than half under 20 years of age - Africa today is quite literally the future of the world - and the future of the world is made in Africa.


Inspired by Africa’s transition from Dark Continent to Bearer of Light, tales of the mermaid goddess of oceans Mami Wata, and a passion for surfing, Bantu was created by merging the rich history of African art and textiles with Africa's deeply rooted surf culture. 


Bantu uses traditional processes and works exclusively with local vendors and artisans in Africa to make quality products that are functional and authentic for surfers, urban nomads and afro-punks.


Bantu is real beachwear from the real Africa.
