Meet Dave Smith

MEET DAVID SMITH

David Smith is the president and founder of Professional Components Ltd., SHOCKWAVE Seats and SHOCKWAVE Motorsports. He is, of course, much more than that. Dave is the driving force behind all these companies, having started his journey nearly 45 years ago as a young man with a passion for speed. In his early years, Dave worked in NASCAR, learning about and building the technology that informs SHOCKWAVE Seats to this day.

Dave is constantly searching for innovative and ambitious ways to test and improve his products, as evidenced by his epic adventures with SHOCKWAVE technology. He has travelled from the East coast to the West coast of Canada going over the country by way of the Arctic Circle in an open-hulled RHIB, setting speed records in almost every leg. He has pushed the limits of open water, alighting amazement and concern by the Russian, American and Canadian coast guards by the speed at which he was able to travel. And he has tackled personal health concerns head on to conquer what was determined to be unconquerable.

All of this has been imbued into SHOCKWAVE – the company and the products. It is an ambitious, innovative and fearless company that is changing the game of marine suspension seating and what is possible on the water.
