Here’s a few words about the history of Keyo Surfboards,
A major manufacturer, the company maintained a high standard and a quality stable of shapers 1961- 1974. Originally started by Dennis (Denny) Keogh, the label was at the cutting edge in surfboard design 1965 to 1970. The securing of the Hobie Cat franchise in 1969 quickly saw the company divert its resources to this expanding market at a time when the surfboard industry was experiencing one of its many crises. Like many Australian decals the company logo is a copy of an American design, in this case Hobie Surfboards. The design was later used by Geoff McCoy when he left Keyo Surfboards and started his own company.One of the Brookvale Five – manufacturers with national sales and reputation in the ten years 1962 to 1972.
