Name: Candace Loy
AKA: Dila Tawn
Home Town: Gisborne NZ Bio:
I was born and bred in Singapore and moved to Melbourne where I learnt to surf.
Now it feels like home when I step into the water, get onto my board and paddle out.
Every session is a new lesson in facing my fears ( and also getting out of the way).
It is the best feeling spending ocean-time with my guy and good friends.
I did art when I was growing up but have never felt more compelled to put brush to paper than when I realized I could make surfboards beautiful.
My designs focus on a hand-painted feel, for girls aged 4 to 104.
I am starting to get requests for blokes, and will certainly be creating designs that both guys and girls will love, so stay tuned
I will also consider unique, one-of-a-kind commissions. My other loves are modelling and science. Stunning Gisborne, NZ, is home for now.
How long you been designing? 10+ years
