Our first business was a shack on the side of the Norah Head Hamburger and pinball place at Norah Head. Norah Head Surf was born in 1977 then survived 1978 but only really in summer. The Honey Surf Bus delivered wax and leg-ropes, clothing and wetsuits were very basic. We were the first Rip Curl Surf Shop account on the Central Coast. Quiksilver and Billabong followed shortly thereafter.
In 1980 we got a little more serious with a proper shop at Budgewoi. We were based in this location for four years and traded all year, seven days a week. We would wake up to the early morning breaks at Budgewoi beach before work.
In November 1984, the first real assault in a real surf shop came with our move to East Toukley with a largish range of Boards, Wetsuits, Surf accessories and Clothing in an actual shopping area. Due to the success of this move to East Toukley. We expanded to several other locations – Wyong Plaza, Bateau Bay and Lake Haven Shopping Centre. In mid 1990’s we then consolidated all the store to one Mega Store.
Located to this day in the heart of Toukley. Our store consists of a dedicated board room. Known as Boardland. Our main store downstairs supplies our shoppers with all the latest fashion releases from the leading surf brands; including Rip Curl, Billabong, Quiksilver, Roxy and O’neill along with many other surf and street fashion brands.
Our passion is still the same as it was from our humble beginnings. The Beach, The Surf and our Community. We will continue to be a Surf Shop who sells boards and provides our customers with the latest advice and trends.
