‘Tis officially the season to be merry and the staff at The Surfboard Warehouse are jumping for joy. Christmas parties, BBQ’s, cricket, music festivals and endless sunshine filled days at the beach, we think summer is AWESOME!
We spoke to a few of our staff members who shared their favourite things about summer...
"As the weather heats up it’s time to toss the wetsuits aside and feel the freedom of surfing in bikinis and boardies again".
"Good times in the surf. The smell of freshly waxed boards and surfing until sunset. Everyone seems more relaxed in the summer and it’s the best time to get out there on a longboard and enjoy a party wave or two or maybe some tandem surfing".
"Packing the car, surfboards and stand up paddle boards strapped to the roof, then setting off on road trips to deserted locations down forgotten roads. Finding the ultimate spot to throw down a rug, have a bite to eat then get back out on the water".
"After sweltering hot days, kicking back and watching the afternoon thunderstorms roll in. The anticipation of cyclone swells hitting the points between January and March, knowing that pumping waves are just on the horizon".
"Spending hours at the beach surrounded by family and friends. The sunshine, the smell of sunscreen, immersing yourself in the cool water and arising completely renewed. Sand between your toes and salty hair".
"Summer fruits! Juicy mangos and ice-cold watermelon, the ultimate energy food for long days in the surf".
There are so many things we love about this time of year, what are your favourite things about summer?
