DMS Surfboards is the vision and creation of New Zealand born Dan Macdonald. Dan's vision has always been to create premium hand crafted surfboards using quality materials, superior craftsmanship and innovative design. Today DMS have many well known surfboard models like the DMS Fat Cat, DMS Crumpet and the DMS Actor. Dan's endless thirst for knowledge and experimentation has led him to travel widely and study at the feet of master surfboard builders throughout the world. Daniel has refined that knowledge and applied it to the DM Shapes collection, an impressive and varied array of surf craft designed for all surfers and surfing conditions. From his fine-tuned high performance short boards like the popular DMS Crown or the DMS Panther. All these high performance models along with any board in the collection can be ordered in the DMS patented carbon wrap technology. DM Shapes also have a fine selection of all round performers like the DMS Fly and the DMS Wave Warrior.
DMS Surfboards are well known for their one of a kind artwork from striking hand-pigmented free lap tints to polaroid inlayz and many other artwork selections that allow surfers to order true customs, unique to their individual style. The DMS longboards and hybrid fish surfboards include the popular DMS Stilnox, DMS Valium and the DMS Thumb. The DMS Charger is a retro inspired fish and also another fast small wave model. DMS also have performance single fin designs like the DMS Zephyr.
