 Core Boardsports

Core Boardsports started as a bricks and mortar store in Geelong, VIC specialising in Windsurfing and SUP Equipment. The store was then relocated Torquay (VIC) to to be closer to the windsurf and surf community.
It was then with much regret that we closed the doors of this store to focus our effort into online store which shared its stock with with our 2 other stores, SHQ Boardsports and Sunshine Coast Boardsports.  We have now made the decision to combine the Core Boardsports online store with the SHQ online store. We still offer all the best brands with the largest range of products in Australia. Hope to see you soon!!
