About Wicks Surf Shop - Collaroy Beach
Wicks Surf shop first opened its doors on September 9, 1975. It is the original “independently” owned surf shop on the Northern Beaches, and has a great tradition of being a “core” surf store specialising in Surfboards, Wetsuits Surf Hardware and Accessories.
The store is located directly opposite the beautiful Collaroy beach. The beach responsible for kick starting many an amature and professional surfing career!
The store is and always has been locally owned and operated. This ensures our customers the best quality advice, and service.
Anthony “Wicka” Hardwick first started the shop focusing on retailing surfboards, having had grass roots in the industry, surfing for Geoff McCoy and working at his factory in Brookvale in the early 1970’s. His slogan was very appropriate, “Surfers with the surfer in mind.”
In 1976 Wicka took on good friend Steve “Slackey” Ross as an employee and later on as a business partner. Steve has been working at the shop to this day and has 40 years surf retail experience.
Peter “Spud” Thomson, worked with Steve when he was a grommet and is the current owner of the store. Spud has 36 years surf retail experience under his belt.
