Mike DiSciascio, owner of Strapper Surf, began shaping Strapper boards at the age of 15. He has shaped more than 10,000 boards and continues to do so out back of one of his Torquay stores. Mike and I first worked together in 1996 and since then I have enjoyed designing more than 11 Strapper Surf stores including the new Torquay store. This new Strapper store has given Mike the 2015 Australian Surf Industry Award for: Best Surf Shop Vic/Tas, Best Shop fit out of the year and Runner up for the National Surf shop of the year. Well done Crew!
