The Worlds Gone Mad!

Don’t panic! While we have been trying to make light of the crazy world we are living in at the moment, we are treating this seriously, as everyone should be! We are sterilising the shop first thing every morning to help stop the spread of this thing and are taking the necessary precautions when receiving new stock, as are the couriers.

We are more than happy to take phone/email/dm orders which can then be picked up in store or for those who are hesitant to come into town in the coming few weeks we are more than happy to deliver locally free of charge (Wonthaggi, Inverloch, Cape Paterson, Kilcunda and everywhere in between. We can also ship to anywhere in the country starting at $10 for small packages!)

We are here to help you, our wonderfully loyal and always stoked customers! For now it’s business as usual, so as always if you have any questions please call us in store or pop in and have a chat. Now go surfing, skating and everything else you legends do!

Everyone please get down and do your part to preserve our beaches!! If you can’t make it on the day remember you don’t need a reason to pick up rubbish from the beach. If you see something pick it up, every little bit counts.


Fight for the bight




















The fight for the bight is at a crucial stage.

“The people of Australia and beyond have spoken up for the Great Australian Bight. Tens of thousands of people from all over the country have paddled out to protest Equinor’s intention to turn the Bight into a deep water oil field. Over 30,000 people wrote to the industry regulator formally opposing Equinor’s plan.

Industry regulator NOPSEMA have requested Equinor revise their environment plan and have given them 60 days to do so. Meanwhile the Federal Government’s Independent Audit into NOPSEMA’s consideration of exploration in the Bight has commenced.

NOPSEMA’s judgment of the revised environmental plan is expected to drop as early as September which is in line with Equinor’s plans to begin exploratory drilling in 2020.

The Fight for the Bight is far from over. We need to keep the pressure on Equinor and on the Federal Government. The Bight needs to remain wild and free.”
