A Fly on the Wall

Our good friend Michael De Wit works at Vans and took a little field trip up to Maine with the design team to try their hand at building wood surfboards. Joe Carter put together a great video of their experience and if you look closely, you can see Michael reaping a Defgrip tee! Big thanks to Michael for the support and next time we expect to see our own Defgrip surfboard! haha!
