Justin - Osborne Park Store
Justin has been in the water ever since he was old enough to swim. He was grom surfer and a competitive one at that.
For all of his mature life, he has been working in the water sports industry.
He knows as much about board constructions as anyone you'll meet. He can practically chew your ear off talking about fins, leashes, wax and accessories.
Most recently he was a competitive Stand Up Paddle board racer and has competed in the iconic Rottnest Doctor Downwinder Ocean Paddling Race.
After realizing an opportunity to help people get the gear they need, Justin started his own brand of surf eye-wear which he named after his son Sage, Sage Eyewear.
Now he loves to get out on the SUP with the family. His favorite locations for a leisurely paddle are Mindarie and Hillarys. His favorite wave around Perth is a 'secret' spot near Watermans Bay and at Metthams.
Justin's favorite board is the Starboard Drive, as it's an efficient and effective flat water paddler but also suitable for nice fat wave!
Come learn something from him!
Jo - Osborne Park Store
Before commencing work with us, Jo made it clear that a job wasn't going to keep him out of the water!
He can be found kiting every windy afternoon through the summer while running a service called the Upwinder. When the surf is in, his favorite spot is Brighton beach, primarily because it's less crowded and he lives in walking distance of the area.
Jo loves to help you connect with a community of like minded, passionate water sports enthusiasts and believes that every experience is best enjoyed when shared. Let him help you get 'in'.Jo's favorite board is the Starboard Converse, as it's a smaller board that surfs fantastically but also tracks and glides well in flat water.
He is excited to share the stoked and loves to teach people about equipment. He works hard to ensure that you have the equipment that will serve you best.
