A Short Wrap of 40th Anniversary of the Event on the West Coast
Saturday 20th June 2015
Saturday 20th June is International Surfing Day!
Red Herring Surf is raising money for the Surfrider Foundation by doing a few fun things in our stores to bring awareness to the foundation!
Surfrider Foundation Australia (SFA) is a not for profit sea-roots organisation dedicated to the protection of Australia’s waves and beaches through Conservation, Activism, Research and Education (CARE).
They are a branch based organisation with 25 volunteer branches and beach representatives Australia-wide, and the head office based in Sydney. They are also part of a global Surf-rider family, with international affiliates worldwide.
The Burnie store will be holding 2 Surf Yoga Classes in store on the Saturday 10-11am and 2-3pm.

"You can’t go wrong with a thick knitted cardi and this Roxy number from Red Herring Surf was an unexpected find. I guess when people think “surf shop” they assume branded logos slammed across the front of everything, hoodies and a more casual approach to clothing however this is not the case these days. Brands like Roxy, Tigerlilly etc are offering on trend pieces like this knit"
Everyone LOVES tree houses and skate parks, right?!
Check out this awesome project by Foster Huntington.
With international Skate Day Coming up on the 21st June, he will be getting his book funded by the day before thanks to the kind general public who are backing him!
"In the Spring of 2014 a small group of close friends broke ground on a building project in Skamania County, Washington in the Columbia River Gorge. Their primary endeavor was a multi-platform tree house, but also included a skate bowl and a wood fired soaking tub as well. The crew came from all over the country and from a variety of backgrounds. Some were professional carpenters, others learned on the job, gaining experience along the way. The Cinder Cone is Foster Huntington’s short film that documents this year-long process of building his dream home with this community of tight knit friends."
