Surf Prescriptions Mini Simmons
Jeff “DOC” Lausch is a shaper like no other. His creative flare and style, combined with his open minded approach to new ideas, materials and designs has had him at the forefront of surfboard innovation for years. His latest endeavor with Varial Foam and helping bringing it to the masses, is having a huge impact on the materials revolution. We recently picked his brain about his brand, where he came from and the future of materials.
Behind the Brand: Jeff “Doc” Lausch founded Surf Prescriptions in 1982 in Huntington Beach, CA. A shaper for more than 30 years, Lausch says his early influences go back beyond the thruster, a factor that still emanates from his body of work today. “My first shaping influences were Mike Diffenderfer and Dick Brewer when boards had one fin,” he says. “Then, when boards had two fins, it was Shaun Stussy.”
