ALKA SURF COMPANY 

We grew up in a small vilage in north of Portugal with km's of coastline, so surfing was a thing that we felt in love at young age. Alka Surf & Co emerged in 2013 when we started to make our first boards after many years of surfing.

Nowadays we are at a bigger factory with best conditions for developing surfboards, but always keeping in mind what brought us here, the essence and spirit of craftsmanship as better as we and with all the love and passion that we can put into it.

Having a SurfShop in the same place of the factory make all the sense, here you can follow all the steps and the enviroment of building a surfboard, bringing the spirit and the essence of surfing. We want Alka SurfShop and the factory to be more, to be a place where people can get together before and after surfing to share ideas, experiences and knowledge abaout their way of being in the surf community.

Alka is not simply a shaper, but rather the complete surfboard manufacturer. I´m still picking up the sander and working in the glass room.

It´s all about the perfect surfboard, and surrounding yourself with the most skilled workers in the industry, to create that ultimate ride.

I´m heavily influenced by our team riders and those closest to me in the surfing community. We are devoted to giving everyone the ultimate experience when they ride a surfboard.

"In production, everything is done through the smallest details, from the quality of the materials to the finishes, to make the best and more reliable and companion board"
