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.
