DKG Surf Boats has been manufacturing surf boats for almost 35-years and produces the highest quality built surf boat on the market today.  Our team are some of the most experienced within surf life saving and fiberglass manufacturing.

Grant Wilkinson - Grant is a life member of Elouera SLSC, joining whenIMG_4101 he was only 5yrs old and being at the same club ever since.  Grant is a former professional ironman competing in both the Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain and Uncle Toby’s Ironman Series for over 12yrs.  After retiring from professional ironman in 2001, Grant began to concentrate on ski paddling where he has won NSW State Open and World Championship gold medals as well as Australian Masters Championships.

After rowing in the Elouera A crew Grant turned his attentions to sweeping.  Since then Grant has taken his crews to Gold, Silver and Bronze medals at the ASRL Open, NSW State and Australian Championships as well as representing Sydney Branch, NSW and Australia.

Grant also has experience in fiberglassing, working with the brilliant and innovate designer Jan Horak at Spectrum Skis from 1995 - 2003.  As well as being a “test pilot” for new designs, he was actively involved in fiberglass production and manufacturing over this time.

 

Mark McDonald - Mark (“Funky”) was the senior sweep of Elouera SLSC for 20yrs before moving south to North Cronulla.  IMG_4108Highlights include gold medals at ASRL Open, Sydney Branch, NSW State and Australian Championships as well NSW State and Australian representative honors.

Mark is a builder by trade, running “AusBuild Australia” for the past decade.  Between his practical skills and extensive background in surf boats, Mark is an excellent addition to a new and exciting future at DKG Surf Boats!

 

Scott Wheeler - Scott is our master builder and heads up the team on the factory floor.  His experience and expertise in the field of vacuum infusion technology has meant that he has been sought after not only by other manufacturers, but by various government agencies to consult on everything ranging from carbon fibre paneling to reinforce bridges to other surf craft and water craft.  He is one of, if not THE leader in this field in Australia and he continues to be our main man directing production at DKG.

Vacuum Infusion Technology means that our boats are stronger than those that are hand laid and that we are more accurate at delivering a boat on weight every time.
