Board for Sale - 6'5'' Tube Dawg!!

Long short short, we had someone pull out on their custom order when they were forced to cancel their Bali trip. Their loss is your gain as we're now selling this bad boy to the first taker!

This is a 6'6'' x 19 3/8'' x 2 5/8'' Tube Dawg model with a super glass job (6 oz. bottom, double 6 oz. deck plus foot patches) and a nice two-tone yellow-amber resin tint. It has a 5-fin setup using SurfFinz Fin System (compatible with FCS),

Sorry the photo doesn't do it justice, but you get the idea! Send us an e-mail if you're interested, but if you want something else then we're of course accepting custom orders too!

Old Guys are always saying...

Pipeline, a long time ago!! How do you tell? The board, the neon colors, still have hair...
Us old guys are also reminiscing about the good ol' days, when surfing wasn't so 'cool'. There were way less people around, and things like respect and friendship were important. Making surf boards was an art form, and there was revolutionary work being done constantly.

Nearly 40 years in the business, I feel lucky to have grown up and been a part of the growing art and science of surfboards. Years of experience, not only shaping but surfing, gives me a pretty cool perspective of boards, from performance thrusters to big wave guns to retro styles and everything in between.

Has making surfboards turned into another computer age process like printing out IKEA furniture? Well, who is to say? All I know: I'm still making 100% hand-shaped boards and stoked to be doing it! So, if you're looking for a great board that will take your surfing to another level, check out our surfboards page and see what 40 years experience means. Then, give us an email and we'll get working on the best board you've ever owned!

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!

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!
