About DP Surfboards

DP Surfboards began as a backyard operation in the 1990's and has grown to become one of Wollongong and the South Coast's elite surfboard brands. Catering his surfboards to the Sydney market all the way down to Ulladulla, with many team riders coming from Cronulla, Dylan has a large influence on the areas surfers and shapers. 

Head shaper and master craftsman, Dylan Perese has worked tirelessly over the years to perfect the extensive range of DP Surfboards that offers surfers everything from high performance shapes, summer fun boards, and designs that specifically cater for up-and-coming groms.

Every DP Surfboard is made from the highest quality materials available and hand finished by Dylan Perese himself in the DP Factory at Ulladulla. DP Surfboards can be custom designed and ordered, or purchased from the DP Boardroom in Bulli, or via our website.

Shaper Profile: Dylan Perese

South Coast born and bred, Dylan Perese has over 20 years shaping experience and is one of the most sought after shapers in the Wollongong and South Coast area. Beginning his career hand-shaping boards in his backyard after school, Dylan then worked under the guidance of Graham King of King Surfboards in the Sydney's Sutherland Shire for years, hand-shaping, glassing and sanding thousands of surfboards.

Over the years, the growth in popularity of DP Surfboards has lead to Dylan setting up a factory outlet at Ulladulla on the South Coast and a retail store (The DP Boardroom) in the Wollongong suburb of Thirroul. Unless he's in the water personally testing his designs like most good shaper/surfers, Dylan can be found at or between one of these two locations.
