YALLINGUP, WESTERN AUSTRALIA

 

Yallingup, Western Australia is the home and testing ground for Creatures of Leisure products. Located on Western Australia’s wave-rich South West coast, Yallingup and its surrounds has bred some of the world’s best surfers for several generations. The region boasts multiple breaks within a relatively short span of coast, most with a reputation for quality and a power comparable with that of Hawaii. It’s the perfect place to test surfing accessories.

None of Creatures of Leisure surfing products hit the market without being given a thorough workout in these waves by our staff and sponsored riders or further afield by members of our international surf team.

It was here in Yallingup that a young John Malloy put down roots after hitching his way from Los Angeles in 1972. Over the 4 years that followed he and a mate developed the world’s first urethane leash with injection parts to tackle the powerful local waves. That venture sparked a passion for designing and developing surf accessories that continues to this day.

After 30 years our core motivation remains the same: To further enhance the surfing experience through products of integrity and genuine innovation.
