Greenside News

Wow... now that we have the doors open and our first Xmas under the belt it's time to introduce ourselves to the township of Woolgoolga. Greenside is the brainchild of my wife Rebecca and her business partner Nikki. The girls at Botanicus Boutique had outgrown their little space next to Jeds Bakery and Bluebottles. I was recently medically  retired and had time and energy. We renovated the old Woolgoolga News agency and what you see now is the result.


In my youth I was a professional swimmer and represented Australian Institute of Sport, Queensland and Australia. My love of the water later morphed into all things ocean and surfing.

Why open a high end surf and adventure store? The retail industry and surf industry are really tough. - I'm nearing retirement not starting out. In my policing days I specialised in Weapons training, SWAT and tactical team training. Sourcing good equipment to get a job done was part of everyday work.

I've taken this aspect and applied it to souring only high end products for Greenside Surf and Adventure. This has resulted in not necessarily the most expensive but rather the "Best bang for your buck $" approach. Most if not all Greenside brands this method applies.

Please feel free to drop in say G'day.

Come in anytime and chat all things surfing and don't forget to bring Coffee....

Keep your eye out for upcoming surf trips with our amazing friends at MentawaiDaize. In the coming months we will be going on 12night Mentawai- Telos - Hinako Islands surf trip and there is space for you to come with us and experience the best surf region on the planet with the best boat in the region.


I am also madly planning a development camp in the Mentawai with local frothing chargers. The kids will experience the culture of Indonesia and compress and elevate their surfing progression. Watch this space for more info.

Likewise my mate in Coffs who's responsible for our Logo Rob @ "King of the Hill Tattoo" is moving (secret information perhaps) to nearby Emerald Beach. Rob has lived in Coffs area all his life and is an amazing artist and has an epic list of artists under his roof. Please see our links to get Inked with @Gooseliver tattoo and his artists in store. Feel free to drop Greenside Surf and Rob and his team will get you sorted with the Ink of your dreams.

Until next blog...Thanks for your support
