How well do you know The Surfboard Warehouse?
The Surfboard Warehouse first opened its doors in 2011. Now we have 6 stores that stretch from Byron Bay to the Sunshine Coast, as well as an online store. We love what we do and we are a passionate bunch that live and breathe surfing.
We want you to get to know us better, so here are a few things you might not know about The Surfboard Warehouse.
We are a family-owned business
You only have to meet The Surfboard Warehouse owner's Tim and Avalon and you’ll know that they are living their dreams. Their passion for surfing and love of the ocean shines through in all aspects of the business.
They've grown The Surfboard Warehouse from the ground up. From humble beginning selling surfboards from a garage sale, to what they have now, one of the largest surfboard and stand up paddleboard retailers in Australia.Tallebudgera Creek is their backyard (literally) and there's a big chance you'll see them on their SUPs or cruising around in their little blue tender with their 2 boys, Vegas and Finn onboard.

Our surfboards are designed locally on the Gold Coast
We have a forward-thinking group of designers who collaborate and share their knowledge to design our huge range of surfboards and SUPs here at The Surfboard Warehouse. This team includes 2 x world champion longboarder, Beau Young. We’re so lucky to have Beau on board, sharing his vast knowledge and experience with our team and taking our boards to the next level.
We employ over 50 staff
We are stoked to support local families and we employ around 50 staff. From the guys in the factory that pack your boards for shipping, to the smiling faces you see in our stores, our team are hand-selected for their passion, knowledge and of course, their outstanding customer service skills.
Every board is personally tested by us
We're lucky to have some great surfers on our team, and when it's board testing time they put them through their paces. We have designated product-testing days, we push our boards to their limits and ensure they surf as good as they look. We also film these sessions, so you can see them in action before you take them home.
2 x winner of Gold Coast Business Exellence Awards
The Surfboard Warehouse are proud to say that we are winners of the Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards 2 years running. It’s testament to the outstanding customer service that we pride ourselves on and the peace of mind that you get when you purchase a board from any of our stores.
