Behind the brands - OCTOPUS

Wasted Talent was born with the idea in mind of bringing the very best of international pinnacle surf and skate brands to the european scene.


Octopus is the spawn of 3 legendary sea lizards, namely Dion Agius, Nate Tyler and Chippa Wilson. Being the gurus of aquatic jumps, these 3 fancy lads decided to create a brand that would allow them to push their extreme activities to the max. 

They went on a journey to find the best materials, scientists, and after months travelling around the world, they came back and started the production.

Front grips and corduroy tailpads were then stuck down and the movement started spreading. The Octopus is now real and taking over the world, to become inevitably the biggest company in the world. 

The full range is available now, and for the first time in Europe on our online store

Get amongst it.
