About

Akela Surf, Surf&Skate Brand 

SLIDE YOUR STYLE! 

Be a part of our community by helping us with Kickstarter!

HELLO KICKSTARTER!

Founded in Montréal, Canada in 2012, Akela Surf has well position itself in the Surf industry worldwide. Well recognized for this swimwear collection, handmade skateboard and fin products. 

As many company, we started to produce tees and hat! Then we decided to extend our product line by offering surfboard, fin, skateboard and swimwear. Why? Because it was a need from our clients, friends that need to be fill.

The swimwear collection was created by Servio wife, Annie Gagné, a french designer with more then 15 years of experiences. Also a mom, a traveller, and a surfer, she wanted to offer swimwear for the women who want to gain respect and style in the line up! All the pieces can also be wear outside the water! Ex: put your favorite jeans over the one piece, you will get great comments!

The bonus of Akela Surf is you can get a fin, skateboard, bag that will match with your swimsuit! Because we also do the design of the fabric, we are making sure that no other Brand will use the same prints!

We have started the process of selling our line to stores and from our website around the world. With some of these new items, we hope that a good response with kickstarter will allow us to finally get these products to a larger customer base and enlarge our next collection.

We need your help for that last little push to show retailers there is a demand for our products, show to these stores and surfers that Akela Surf is more than just another surf brand!
