Better Surf than Sorry
A Wave of Life
Better Surf is a company specializing in fun and exciting ideas. Our
mission is to build a unique venue for trend setting surf related
products that respect the surf and the creatures within. "My goal is to
make and market products for beach lovers. You don't have to be a surfer
to love surfing,” says Chalom, Better Surf's Founder. Alan Chalom has
been involved in surfing and outrigger canoeing since the time he stood
on his first board in Herzlia, Israel (1972). Better Surf than Sorry is
the kind of business that everybody dreams of owning: Create a company
based on your passion which makes you a living, and, in turn, immerses
you that much deeper into your own passion. For all those ideas thought
of between surf sessions and swells; they now have a home.
Alan Chalom has also built the infant and kids line Surfer Baby with the
slogan "You're never too young to be cool." Inspired by the beautiful
Kalia Sky Chalom, the latest addition to the Chalom family, Surfer Baby
offers surfboard bibs and burp cloths, clothing, headwear, and decor
that is all surf-inspired.
