Alan Oke Surfboards was started in 1968 in a small shop in Edithvale, Victoria by a young, enthusiastic surfer.
Alan regularly surfed on Phillip Island and became a well-known identity in the local surf scene. At one time, he was president of the Phillip Island Boardriders Club. He was a part of the early breed of boardmakers in Victoria. At the beginning of the business, board styles such as trackers and pocket-rockets were popular. Over the years, as the business evolved, there was great experimentation involving both style and design.
In 1974, Alan was joined in the business by his younger brother Neil, who had been working for some time at the George Rice factory. Neil was an accomplished surfer who competed in Vic Junior championships and represented the state in 1973 at Western Australia.
All our boards are 100% hand made start to finish at our Braeside factory.
