WITHOUT THIS PEOPLE, THIS PROJECT WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE
so so so
For their enthusiasm, patience and support in all situations a thank you as big as Afonso’s smile!
For their support
For all the help in turning Van der Waal into a real business, without loosing our core values. 2019 was only possible to surpass thanks to Eduardo help and guidance.
For all the support since the day 1. For all the smiles, and goodwill that you bring to Van der Waal. And, of course, for all the retail sales. It’s hard to pay you back in wine, cause you drink a lot… but worth it!
The best designer we could have by our side, and the best guy to share waves with. The wave that he did on our logo (between the AAs) is the face of perfection that we try to achieve everyday. Plus: one day Martim will win the heat!
The most picky guy in the world is João, Martim’s brother. He is quite anoying, but he’s also one of the most genius and creative minds we know. And drink beer like a fish drinks water!
A partnership that has never gone forward, but to whom we owe much of what we learn
In a single day, he showed Van der Waal to almost every ‘shark’ of Portugal surf industry.
Our first partnership with a online store was born in a conversation between Martim and Jorge
Much more than a customer or a Waaler. We never met him but we always felt that it’s thanks to him that we sold so much in Spain.
Nic & Ceil & James
From Surfbunker, who believed in us and did reviews that made us so so proud.
Diogo made us realize that Van der Waal also worked in more radical maneuvers. But what we really have to thank him is his patience when he goes to surf with Martim. And his videos. And fotos. And feedback. And sympathy. And the list goes on and on…
For all the talks and learnings. For helping us to grow on a way we believe. And for the smile that all Freeze Pro Shop orders puts on Joana’s face.
Being able to give a Van der Waal pack to King Kelly (Slater) made us (literally) speechless. Iko was responsible for that. And then the whole help he always gave us and the strength and the opportunities. We will never be able to pay him everything he have done for us.
Suddenly we were at The Inertia and we did not know how. It was a dream come true and Tom was responsible for it.
