Strapper surfboards was founded in Torquay on the Surf Coast in Victoria, Australia with Bells Beach and Winkipop surf breaks just down the road in the heart of the indigenous Wathaurong country. Strapper Surf shops are in Torquay as well as the neighbouring towns of Ocean Grove, Geelong and Aireys Inlet just down the Great Ocean Road.
The traditional image of a surfboard shaper with his shop out the front selling surfboards and everything needed for surfers to go surfing is a well-worn story that in fact is very rare and unique today. Strapper started making surfboards in the 60’s and still today have a surfboard factory at the back of the original Strapper Surf store in Torquay. We are still stoked that “we make surfboards”. Other than making our own boards and gear, we sell all the major surf brands and surf products and showcase a curated multi brand offering of surfboards, wetsuits, surfwear, footwear, surf accessories and everything else that surfers need for the beach in our surf shops.
In Torquay along with Rip Curl, Quiksilver and Oakley South Pacific Strapper was born. Strapper continues to be “local owned and operated” by a surfboard shaper and proud to be “the surfers shop”.
