Infront Surfcraft today is owned and operated by Mark Simpson. Following tremendous success in Surf Life Saving as elite athletes, Mark and his brother Dean purchased Infront Surfcraft in 2011. One of the best ironman in Australia during his years competing, Mark takes advantage of his huge experience to continuously develop their board design and structures. Understanding the fundamentals behind board design, sizing and shape they’ve turned good rescue and racing boards into premium boards.
Infront Surfcraft is now one of the dominant players in the surfcraft manufacturing industry, based in the Sutherland Shire, NSW. Infront Surfcraft has grown into a well-established and highly-respected company within the Surf Lifesaving environment, producing competitive and quality craft to suit every style of paddler and skill level.
Our aim is to provide a range of boards that are fast, stable, robust whilst offering exceptional customer service and value for money. So, if you’re a beginner or advanced paddler Infront Surfcraft will make sure you get the exact board you’re looking for. Knowing what surfcraft you should get is crucial to having an enjoyable and successful paddling experience—regardless of skill.
