Since 2005, MILANO SURFBOARDS has been dedicated to shape performance boards, top quality, innovation and working hard with the team riders to reach real and perfect feedbacks.
All this because the surfing is in a constant evolution every day and we have to do the same with our boards, so we always have to be ahead with the designs and materials.
Keeping our quality as high as possible is our goal, which is why our Shaper is the only one who is in charge of shape and design our boards and it´s himself who gives them the last quality control before the boards comes to market.
The founder and owner of MILANO SURFBOARDS, Dario Milano, started in the surfboards industry in 1998 at the age of 14.
With the passage of time and spending several hours in the shaping room their boards were improving rapidly, reaching in 2009 to get the top 10 Latin American Surfing Tour riding with his creations, including the champion and runner-up. Thanks to these important achievements in his careers as a shaper, in 2010 the decision to travel to California to test their skills with the best shapers in the world.
It was there he met Timmy Patterson, considered one of the guru's of shaping, where after seeing the quality of shaper of Dario, decides to have him as back-shaper in the main factory in San Clemente, California.
Another big moment for our shaper was in 2019, when he starts shaping board for the former WSL World Champion, Sofia Mulanovich. She again obtained the title of World Champion in the ISA WORLD SURFING GAMES JAPAN 2019 with the boards shaped by Dario Milano.
