T-shirts featuring the slogan, "I HEART Dapto" have become part of the Daptoid "away" uniform, which allows "outsiders" to immediately identify Daptoids outside of their element and therefore heap praise and gifts upon them. Daptoids also enjoy bodyboarding at Bombo,in KIama. They think they are tough and smoke in the surf.
Due to the drought and places such as Sydney stealing the water of Dapto, Sydney Water has arranged for VB to flow through the homes of residents instead of water. So far, there have been NO objections to this practice.

One resident of Dapto is well known as "Prof" in the local community, as he completed year 9 of High School.
