- Our Story
It all started in March 2011 when Tim and Avalon’s beloved dog, Maven, worked up quite the vet bill from required surgery. To pay off this bill, Tim had to let go of his beloved collection of used surfboards. Tim then tied them up to his front fence with hand drawn signs. Within hours, the surfboards were gone and Maven had the funds necessary to pay for her surgery. To his luck, Tim found out there was a huge demand for surfboards at affordable prices.
Knowing this, Tim set out on a personal mission to create his own range of affordable surfboards and stand up paddleboards that suit the average Australian. His unique business model incorporates lower overheads to ensure customers receive great value for their money. Six years later, The Surfboard Warehouse still shares the same core values.
With his mission in mind, Tim continuously drove The Surfboard Warehouse until it was one of Australia’s largest surfboard and stand up paddleboard manufacturer and retailer. In the space of four years, six shops were opened at Palm Beach, Mooloolaba, Miami, Byron Bay, Noosa and Tweed Heads South.
The Surfboard Warehouse now employs over 55 staff and stocks over 5,000 boards at any given time. The product lineup has expanded rapidly into a massive range of shortboards, longboards, high performance boards, softboards, mini mals, fish and retro shaped boards. We pride ourselves in having the right board for anyone that walks through our doors. From beginners to professionals, we have something in our range for everybody.
Tim has designed and developed a wide range of products including four major brands: Aquatic Social Scene, Atlantis, Waterborn and Vessel. You are bound to see the identifiable logos and unique designs in line-ups and waterways Australia Wide.
