Al Rannochan was a superb committee and community member. A past Chairman of the club and a great ambassador for surfing in North Devon, Al is remembered each year by Croyde Surf Club.


Father to ex-UK Pro Surfer Scott Rannochan, Al sadly passed away in 2003 due to cancer. It was always his wish to own a Harley Davidson and in his last few months with us, he was fortunate to own and ride one.


Al was a bloody legend. Everyone who knew him always makes the effort to attend the first contest of the year and tries to win the very unique and prestigous trophy.
