Boardriders Coolangatta Opens at The Strand

Posted on Monday, March 09, 2015

Boardriders, the flagship concept store developed by Quiksilver, has opened at The Strand at Coolangatta. The new store at The Strand is the first of its kind in Australia and in close proximity to the world-class surfing breaks at Snapper Rocks and Kirra. 

The unique retail concept includes a showcase for Quiksilver’s retail brands including Quiksilver, Roxy and DC Shoes, as well as other lifestyle attractions within the store’s footprint, making it unlike anything offered by other surf or recreational retailers.  

These attractions include a café and licensed bar, serving coffee, fresh smoothies and juices, light meals and drinks. The unique space no doubt proved popular as a great place to watch all the highlights from the Quiksilver and Roxy Pros streamed live from as the action happened just down the road.

Australian artists Peter Webb and Wade Lewis helped spruce up the external walls with incredible hand-painted murals, creating a local legacy for the community. 

The store will also be hosting weekly yoga classes, with local yoga Instructor Crystal O’Rourke. For more details visit The Strand's website.
