Sollife was founded in 1996 in Half Moon Bay, California, only half a mile from the big wave
mecca of Mavericks. But performance surfboards was, is and always will be the focus for Sollife.
Our founder Scott Crump,
a former professional surfer and world traveler, was competing selectively at the time and worked closely with a team of Santa
Cruz rippers to develop the boards. Santa Cruz is only an hour down the road from half moon bay and is full of high performance
point breaks and beachies. Things progressed fast, a WCT surfer at the time from Santa Cruz named Adam Replogle jumped on
a few boards and got the inside cover spread of Surfing magazine and things exploded from there. Sollife quickly found retail
partners at Santa Cruz surf shop, Monterey freestyle and up in Marin at the then Marin Surf Sports amongst others, most of
which are still working with us today. The name Sollife was derived during a lengthy European road trip in mid ‘96.
We were in Spain and we always wanted the sun as our board logo. The word sol is sun in Spanish.
At the time many of my close childhood friends were fading into the night and its ugly habits.
I wanted nothing of it and was completely focused on surfing and the energy of living in the sun/daylight! Thus Sollife was
A dozen years later sollife is thriving on the gold coast of Australia. We have a youth focused
surf team and are driving hard into the future. With a global group of factory riders from pacific islands, Europe, USA and
of course Australia, things have never been brighter! Sollife still holds the same important meaning to all of us at the sollife
family. Welcome to sollife!!!
