Our crew includes Travis Grant (NSP DC), currently positioned as the world’s number one stand up paddler.   Travis recently won one of the toughest races in the world, Molokai, in July 2015 with a 15-min gap in front of Kai Lenny riding a NSP DC production 17’10’’.  

Travis has been riding NSP DC designs for 4 years.  He brings a wealth of experience to the team from racing  some of the most prestigious global races. We’re super-proud of Travis.  
He’s a stand-out athlete and extremely talented.

We’re equally-stoked to have Stimo and Monica de Araujo riding DC Paddleboards.  Each member of the crew plays a significant role within research and development for new design work.

Dale Chapman

We simply can’t compete with the big guns; however, we do have a brand and product that talented sup athletes want to work with. One of the advantages that Dale offers his team is that he designs and shapes boards customised for the team rider. Our team choose us, which is an enormous compliment to the business. Over the years, we have had a selection of the worlds’ best sup athletes riding for DC paddleboards, to include Beau O’Brien, Kelly Margetts and Terrene Black. We’re selective about who we work with and we’re always on the lookout for new talent!
