Evolve & Revolve:
Built to unite the body and the elements until we work as one.
A concise collection of high performance and durable products.
AK was founded by a passionate group of watermen based along the rugged coastline of Cape Town, on a mission to create products that become an extension of ourselves, progressively integrating the body and the elements until we work as one.
With a concise range of technical components, boards, and accessories, AK aims to enhance your life on the water as we spend our time chasing wind and waves, pushing the limits of ourselves, and our gear.
Part of the privately owned SESTAR group, AK was initiated by the creative and technical minds behind the Solar Station Design company in Cape Town; a small collective of creators and innovators that have been crafting products for the surf, wake, and wind sports industry for 25 years.
We work to forge a new path in high performance, durable, and essential products that resonates with a crew of like-minded riders.
The first products were developed in 2018 by Clinton Filen, Graham Wiles, and others, along with a few additions in more recent years, like Craig Tompkins.
In 2019, South African surfer Dale Staples, Hawaiian waterman Zane Schweitzer, Canadian Kiteboarding Champion Jack Reider, and Spanish champ Kiko Roig Torres, formed the nucleus of the early team riders. Since then, we’ve developed a tight-knit collective of watermen who have all helped drive the brand forward.
