The Halford Family


 The Halford Family Craig, Susan, and our children Brittany & Ethan from Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  We have been passionate about boating, wakesurfing and the family fun the water life brings since we purchased our first boat in 2007.

Things were very different then. When we tried surfing for the first time, we started with no ballast, driving in circles, no clue what board to buy or how to stay in the wave. Does this sound familiar?  This was the start of our surfing addiction, what a blast!

Fast forwarding through the years…..  We decided to look for a new custom wakesurf board and along came this cool, custom board company owner from Boise, Idaho. We ordered a surf style board, “Zulu”, from Shawn at Brigade and that was the start of a great friendship. Shawn travelled to Canada for a cool spring wakesurfing adventure and introduced us to the world wakesurfing competition family.  People of all ages around the world who share the same love and passion for wakesurfing.

 Craig and Susan have enjoyed competing in the Masters Division for the past 2 years with appearances at the WWSC in 2015 and 2016. Susan landed a podium finish in 2016, Surf style. Ethan was inspired while riding with Pro riders Jake Castor and Cole Sorenson and has the bug to take a run at the amateur division this year with his Jake Castor Pro model skim board. Craig and Susan ride the Halfie Pro model surf style board behind the incredible 2016 Centurion Ri217.

We are very proud to be part of the Brigade Family. If you are looking for amazing boards from a great company check out Brigade!! Surf This!!!
