Maui Dawn Patrol – Custom Stand Up Paddle Boards

Maui Dawn Patrol was started in 2007 to fill the need on Maui of a surfboard factory that was built with rooms meant to handle the 12 foot Stand-up Paddleboards that were being made at that time. Most surfboard factories aren’t designed to handle that large of a board, and production was really hampered at that time because no one on Maui really wanted deal with them.

David Peterson saw the potential of the growth of the sport, and wanted to build them in a “friendlier environment”, aka rooms designed to handle a big board without bumping into everything everytime you moved it. So he started Maui Dawn Patrol in the Pauwela Cannery on the North Shore of Maui to build Stand-up Paddleboards , basically because at that time nobody else wanted to, or so he thought.

“Little did I know that every major surfboard and sailboard company was busy having boards molded in China and Thailand ready to flood the market with inexpensive pop-outs”. He didn’t see that one coming, or the recession, not the best time to start a new business. Luckily the surfboard business somehow seems to not follow norm.

“That’s okay, I really wanted to focus on the custom market, and the way board designs changed so fast, what was thought to be the right design or size was outdated in 2 or 3 swells”. He hardly builds anything over 10 feet anymore, and is constantly building new boards for himself, sometimes selling them in the water on their maiden voyage.

You can get your own DPMAUI board at:
375 West Kuiaha Rd. Unit 18, Haiku, Hi. 96732,

We won’t begin to tell you that we make the absolute best Stand-Up Boards on the market, because if you look at everybody else’s website, they all claim their boards are best, so I guess ours can’t be, or so THEY say”.

Our boards are, however, one of THE LIGHTEST CUSTOM made Boards in the World…Come and see for your self!
And MADE ON MAUI!! not China…

Stand-Up Paddle Surf School – Maui Hawaii

Welcome to Maui’s Premier Stand-Up Paddle Surf School with Maria Souza!

Stand-Up Paddle Surfing, also abbreviated as SUP, is rapidly growing global sport originating from Hawaii. It is traced back to the 1940’s in Tahiti. stand-up paddle surfing is a mix between—you guessed it—surfing and paddling. Back in the day, Waikiki beach boys stood on their longboards while navigating with outrigger paddles, taking pictures of tourists on shore, and the sport of stand-up paddle (SUP) was born. Now referred to as Ku Hoe He’e Nalu on the Hawaiian islands, the sport is quickly gaining popularity all over the world because of its graceful simplicity and quick learning curve.

Devoted Specifically to Stand-Up Paddle Lessons

Stand-Up Paddling is the fastest growing ocean sport. A no-impact sport that will positively effect you mentally, physically and emotionally. No experience necessary. Stand-Up Paddle Surfing is easier than surfing and you are guaranteed to learn!

To learn paddle surfing you’ll need a board—and SUP boards are big, averaging between nine and 11 feet long. An instructor can fit you with the proper size according to your height and weight. Boards with a soft deck are ideal for beginners and those who don’t want to bother with the tedious chore of waxing. Paddles tend to be six to nine inches taller than the paddler’s height, and the more lightweight and easy-to-handle the paddle, the farther you’ll travel using the least amount of umph. Most people are up and paddling on flat water after just 30 minutes.

About Stand Up Paddle

Stand-Up Paddle Surfing, also abbreviated as SUP, is rapidly growing global sport originating from Hawaii. It is traced back to the 1940’s in Tahiti. stand-up paddle surfing is a mix between—you guessed it—surfing and paddling. Back in the day, Waikiki beach boys stood on their longboards while navigating with outrigger paddles, taking pictures of tourists on shore, and the sport of stand-up paddle (SUP) was born. Now referred to as Ku Hoe He’e Nalu on the Hawaiian islands, the sport is quickly gaining popularity all over the world because of its graceful simplicity and quick learning curve.

Stand Up Paddle, (SUP), is an emerging global sport with a Hawaiian heritage. It can be traced back to the early days of Polynesia. The sport is ancient form of surfing and began as a way for surfing instructors to manage their large groups of learner surfers as standing on the board gave them a higher view point increasing visibility of what was going on around them such as incomming swell. To begin with, this started with using a one bladed paddle standing on a normal length surfboard. This evolved to standing on longer surf boards and paddling with modified paddles in the 1940s and 1950s.

Today SUP, or Stand-Up-Paddle, is gaining popularity as the demands for global-conscious green sports increase. Additionally the sport benefits athletes with a strong ‘core’ workout. SUP’ing is popular at warm coastal climates and resorts, and is gaining in popularity as celebrities are sampling the sport and cross-over athletes are training with SUP. SUPs have been spotted around the globe anywhere there is easy access to safe waters as well as in the surfing lineups of the world.
