Reminiscing of the North Shore


This awesome photograph was sent to Jeff recently from his good friend Scott Hartvigsen. This is Jeff having a little morning surf check at Pupukea over a decade ago, just before he left behind Hawaii's North Shore for new adventures. After several decades of chasing waves and building surfboards alongside many of the surfing world's greats, Jeff has very fond memories and plenty of stories to tell about his life there. Thanks for sharing Scott, and hope there are plenty more to come!

Our Models

No, we're not talking about women (though there's plenty of those plastered on the shaping room walls!), we're talking about board models. While we'll keep updating this page, there really isn't a limit to what Jeff can do. Thirty years of experience during surfing's most progressive eras gives Jeff the ability to create pretty much every surfboard imaginable!

Check out our Surfboards page. Two new model descriptions were uploaded last week: the Man Board and the Crowd Controller.

Customer Submissions - Ben Wakefield

View previous Customer Submissions. This section is for all you guys (and gals) out there riding Alexander Surfboards. Send us your photos and stories. If we like em, we'll put em up here!
The last couple of months here in Bali have seen smaller conditions prevailing with no real swell events until this last week. Fortunately for Ben, he picked up his 5'10'' Penetrator from us at the end of Dry Season, and has been putting it through the paces ever since. He shared this nice little shot from earlier this week.

Thanks for sending us this one bro, and keep showing em how it's done!

Customer Submissions - John Malopsy

John Malopsy has been riding Alexander boards for a long time now. Having ridden most of Jeff's various shapes, John was the first to receive Jeff's Bonzer Brothers-influenced board. The Bonzo became an immediate favorite! Having living in Indonesia on and off for several years, it's no wonder John's able to track down empty gems like the one pictured here.

Thanks for sharing and hope to see you back on the Island of the Gods soon!

Our second installment of customer submissions is from Owen Stoneman. Thanks for the nice words and great shots, keep ripping!

Here's what he had to say:
"I was lucky enough to pick up one of your sticks before last week's trip to G-Land. 7'9'' x 18 7/8'' x 2 7/8''. Privileged ride, perfect glide. Keep up the good work mate!"

Customer Submissions - Jim McLeod

This is a new section we started for all you guys out there riding Alexander Surfboards. Send us your photos and stories, or post them on Jeff's Facebook. If we like em, we'll put em up here!

Our first submission is from Australian Jim Mcleod. Traveling to and from Bali regularly, Jim scored this photo during a solo session at Uluwatu Bombie last year (you're probably thinking "ya right, solo session! HA!". It's rare to get waves alone in Bali, but it happens. Especially when it's big!) This may have been Jim's first session on this 7'10'' pintail Jeff shaped him. Good one Jim!

The Penetrator - Not Just for Small Waves

Mike Horton has been putting his new Penetrator (5'10'' x 19 3/8'' x 2 5/16'') through its paces all over Bali the past couple months. Though he got it for small days, Jeff told him to get it out there in the bigger stuff too! Here's what Mike had to say:
"I love this thing! At first, I was only riding it on really small days, waist-chest high. I'm usually stoked to get the bigger boards out when there's a little size, but I finally decided to try it out on some double overhead waves and it was still awesome. Jeff and I are already talking about the next one actually! We're going to tweak it a little bit and see what happens."
Read more about the Penetrator (and notice in the photo the board already has a pad and wax on it, Mike stole it out of the factory before we got a photo!).

If you want one of these or something like it, shoot us an e-mail and let's talk!
