    Becoming the dominant surfboard manufacturer in Africa required the efforts of passionate surf professionals over a period of 50 years. Building on this heritage now is a staff of 35 focused on delivering a world-wide service second-to-none. Founding the company were South African Surf Legends Max Whetteland and Baron Stander, who together in 1964 began shaping Safari Surfboards in a small workshop off Umgeni Rd, Durban, using the best materials available at the time. In 1964 the Australian's staged the very first ever World Surfing Championships at Manly Beach Sydney, and Max with his Safari board became South Africa's first surf representative on the global stage.
    Baron Stander featured in a documentry film on surfboard manufacturing directed by Cliff Matchett, set in the original Umgeni Road Safari factory in Durban. The 1965 Safari production team was based at the Somtseu Road Factory, Andrew Ogelvie at the time was still in matric and shaped boards after school. Graham Hynes first bought out Max and then Baron from the company. He and his wife Lorraine were the driving force behind Safari's success over a period of 40 years. Graham made a lasting imprint on South African Surfing with his coaching and management of SA's National Team. At 82 years of age he is still coaching SA teams today, although he handed over the reins of Safari to Spider in 2002.


    It all started one quiet summer in Venice, California in 1995. Greg Falk and Neil Carver had been surfing all winter, and were pumped to surf the warmer waters of the Breakwater during the long days of summer, but it was as flat as a puddle. Not even a longboard ripple to justify getting wet. So, like the many generations before them, they took to the streets with skateboards in search of hills to surf. The historic neighborhoods of Venice and Santa Monica are a veritable skatepark of steep alleys and banks, and as they dropped in on those asphalt waves they were struck with how unlike surfing it was. Sure, they sort of got a surf-like experience, as much as standing on a board and banking turns can provide, but they really missed the snap and drive that a surfboard has, that crisp pivot you get at the tail that lets you really pump a wave for speed. Their skateboards felt stiff by comparison. They tried loosening the trucks even more but all they got was speed wobble, and the steepest hills became virtually unskateable. And even with those loose trucks, the dynamic of the turn was still all rail-to-rail, symmetrical nose-to-tail. Picking up the nose to tic-tac at high speed down a steep incline was sketchy, so they were left only imagining the performance they wanted, unable to get that feel with any skateboard on the market.
