FORM Surfboards is a collection of surfboards created by Alan Stokes and a team of board builders who have worked together for over 10 years. FORM Surfboards came from the desire to be free from the constraint of traditional board design. After spending 30 years competing at a top level Alan's interest in board design and how a wave should be surfed changed from solely high-performance shortboards to new concepts, different designs and new lines. 


This change in outlook combined with a lifetime of knowledge in the ocean created a range of surfboards that give the surfer expression, control and functionality. 


FORM Surfboards aims to create surfboards that allow surfers to be expressive with design and their approach to surfing. Like no two waves are the same, no two surfers are either. With speed and performance at the heart of the design process, the FORM Surfboard range allows the rider to experiment with a variety of craft that draw unique functional lines on a waves canvas. This freedom opens up and maximises a surfers potential to create their own style of wave riding with an effortless glide.


Teaming up with his long-term board building team the FORM Surfboards range uses surfer, shaper and craftsmen's knowledge to create boards that use only the best materials in production, the finest craftsmen finish and a shapers eye to create an end product that rivals the top surfboard brands worldwide. 

FORM Surfboards also strives to be at the forefront of design and innovation. Using new materials and construction methods to bring you the highest level of performance in all conditions. 


Our three constructions allow you to choose materials and flex patterns to suit, your style and wave conditions. 

All tried and tested by surfer and manufacturer.
