Bob Westlake started surfing around the west coast of England over 60 years ago. After being in the scene he soon started to realise there was a gap in the UK surfing market for Californian style surf wear and wetsuits.
Bob’s wife, Annie Westlake took on the challenge and started producing the first boardshorts in the UK. With high demand and an increase in sales of the products this allowed the business to develop into the successful brand that is today ‘Alder Sportswear’.
Alder’s product developers have years of experience within the surfing industry which leads Alder to boast a very exciting and advanced wetsuit and surf accessories range.
