Originally from Sicily, Denis began to shape surf boards in Cefalu for himself and friends just as a hobby. In (20??) Denis was on holiday in Santa Teresa, a stunning beach on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Captivated by it's beauty, the unspoiled nature, and the waves, he decided to move there and he opened Denga Surf Shop.
Because of Denis' dedication and skill and collaboration with talented shapers over the years DENGA has continued to shape incredible boards that are sought after by locals and travelers alike.
