The founder and owner of MILANO SURFBOARDS, Dario Milano, started in the surfboards industry in 2001 at the age of 17 years in Argentina, where he was born. After several years learning at home, in 2004 he decided to move to Peru, one of the best places in the world for surfing. In March 2005 he opened its first factory, which was called ¨DERREM Surfboards¨. 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 of the category OPEN and JUNIORS. 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 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 Milano, decides to have him as back-shaper in the main factory in San Clemente, Ca and give to him the license production of ¨T.Patterson Surfboards¨ for all South America, a big step for our founder. In 2012, he obtained a Latin American champion with its boards.

Since then with passion and dedication, Dario Milano, maintains a constant evolution in their shapes, designs, materials and technologies to use in their surfboards. His personal goal is to be one of the best shapers in the world and maintain the quality of its boards.
