Dom Taylor is the founder of Shaka Surf, an eco surf product marketplace established in 2018. He is a surfer, environmentalist, keen traveler, and entrepreneur. He currently splits his time between Portugal and the UK, loves learning new languages and meeting people from all walks of life!

He started Shaka Surf because he wanted to "be the change" rather than passively watch our oceans and beaches get progressively worse with rubbish. He came up with the idea of creating eco surf fins from recycled waste materials and plastics after coming in from a surf and seeing so much waste on the beach. He pledged to put this rubbish to good use. As well as recycling waste materials and plastics to make the recycled fins, he wanted to create a standout design. So he enlisted the help of a street artist to come up with a unique aesthetic. This led to the development of the Swell lines, paying homage to surf culture and oceanography.
