Water Activities


We are children of the sea and live by the ‘surf above all else’ mantra. It’s that salty, sandy goodness, the winding waterways that means home for us, holiday for others, and soul food for all.

From first-light wave chasing, to frolics on the sand with the pooch, an arvo family SUP sesh or a sunset spin in the tinny on the Broadwater – it’s safe to say, we know a thing or two about getting salty.

We love to throw in a line, wax up the board, prep the boat and can be found switching between swell and wind forecast. Truth be told, if it requires a bikini or boardies, the answer is always a resounding ‘yes’.
