His love of high speeds and board sports is at the core of the Scarpar’s design. Dan worked as a Special Effects Technician and contributed to the making of “The Matrix”, “Mission Impossible 2” and “Superman”. His background in mechanical visual effects for the film industry gave him the skills to be able to bring the Scarpar to life.
