Introducing Dave – The Mad Scientist & Creative Genius of Isle

Graphic designer Dave working on the new paddle board color ways

David is our graphic / web designer and our all-around go-to creative genius here at Isle. Dave was born and raised in San Diego and has never left and for good reason. At an early age he found a love for the ocean at his grandfathers beach house in Venezuela, he then progressed his love for body boarding and surfing at Scripps Pier and Del Mar. Continuing his stoke for riding he began snowboarding in high school in the 90’s, and has been addicted ever since. Dave plays a huge role in developing all our board designs and product lines along with the overall look and management of the Isle website. Dave attended the Art Institute of San Diego Ca and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Advertising with an emphasis in Graphic Design and Photography. When he’s not at work creating magic you can find him trolling the internet for unique limited art or playing with his son Jaxon. If you ever have any questions or ideas for Dave please email him at david@islesurfandsup.com
