What is stoke?

Stoke is that feeling of joy and inspiration you receive from challenging yourself, progressing and growing.

It is the natural high you get from surfing and when we say we want to see your stoke we mean we want to feel your happiness that you get to go to the beach and ride the oceans energy.

Stoke is when you put a smile on other people’s faces.
