About Genesis Surf Shop

Genesis is a small family business, husband and wife team Robin and Christine Gilbert and our great summer staff. We set up the shop in 2004, moving to a larger shop next door in 2011 having started our on line shop in 2006. We live locally and surf locally and love the area. We love to be able to pass on our local knowledge of where to stay and where to play!

We do hope that in shop or online you find friendly service and quality products.
