Interview with Dan Chapman (@aquaplanetsup)


Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path? 

We’re a team of paddleboard enthusiasts. We love nothing more than getting out on the water but found we were always moaning about the features and usability of other paddleboards we were using. So, we decided to do something about it. And – just like that – Aquaplanet was born! We’re super proud to have designed the UK’s no.1 top selling paddleboard and we’re constantly striving to create the best boards and accessories on the market. 

Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this? 

We recently went to Cornwall and were amazed to see a lot of happy people using OUR boards. Very surreal to think this family business has grown to the size it is now with customers all around the world.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”? 

Hire a big customer service department! People always need advice and having the ability to have live chat and phone support makes all the difference!

None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? 

We are grateful to God for everything.

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world? 

We try to use sustainable materials in our boards where possible.

Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
