Dion Agius Is Surfings 21st Century Digital Boy: An In-Depth Profile | Motivation + creativity = success
Perpetually black beanie’d Dion Agius is one of our favs. As far as creativity and cool things done off a surfboard goes, Dion can’t really be touched. From the fashion to the movies to the brands he runs; he doesn’t take no L’s. His surfing as well though has really grown on us. It’s a little rabid but unpredictable and fun to watch. This long-form piece from STAB gets to the heart of Dion. Where he came from and how he grew into his creativity and his current mindset. Fits in quite nice with the Hayden Shapes team gotta say.
“But Dion’s not one for the “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” motto. If anything his motto would more be along the lines of: “If it ain’t broke, better fix it anyways, because it’ll probably be broken soon.” More than any modern-day surfer, Dion has kept himself ahead of what’s considered “cool.””
“I feel pretty content with aerial surfing, so it’s been really fun trying to figure out how to do turns, because I honestly don’t really know how to do them,” @dionagius told Stab. “I’ve been watching guys and studying their techniques, and now I’ve started working with @haydenshapes on making my boards more geared for turns. All of the sudden, we got that new board, the Holy Grail, on this trip, and I can’t believe how much of a difference I feel in turns. It’s the first board I’ve ridden where I’m like holy shit, it’s clicked a little bit.” Dion just inked with HS and his latest edit, ‘New Blood’ is live exclusively on Stab Cinema. Hit the link in bio.
