Global Price Match @ Red Herring Surf

At Red Herring Surf we have a global price matching policy. ’GPM@RHS’ 
In 2012 RHS, Tassies original surf shop undertook  a massive pricing restructure to bring our surfboards and wetsuits ‘in line with online’  and now offer these products at the best prices anywhere in the world.
 It has never been cheaper to get out and into the water in Tassie.
You can now call in and buy a wetsuit for the same price (or even less sometimes!!!) than overseas, but you can also try it on, get advice, have an Australian warranty and contribute to the Tasmanian Economy. We also Price Match – so if a customer finds the exact same wetsuit in another store in Tassie then we will price match it and give the customer the ‘Best Price’ possible.
The prices on boards and wetsuits are like they were 10 to 15 years ago, but the technology is amazing, boards are lighter and stronger than ever before and wetsuits are incredibly flexible and warm.

Hurley Australian Open of Surfing

on Monday, 31 March 2014. Posted in skate, surf

Competition Winners Head to Manly

Mark and I were so excited when we found out that we had won two VIP tickets to the Hurley Surf Competition! I had never been to watch a surfing competition before, let alone the Hurley Australian Surfing Open! We arrived at Manly Beach on Friday the 14th in the afternoon.  We had never been to Sydney before, so we were both a tad excited! It was such an eye-opener.  We are both currently living in a town where the population does not exceed 1000 people, so this was all very exciting for us!  As soon as we checked into our hotel on the beach, we walked down to the beach where The Presets were about to play! You don’t get this in Triabunna! I have never seen so many people, both in and out of the water!
The next morning we woke up early, so we could watch the surfing from the VIP tent! It was amazing! It took me a little while to figure out how the surfing works! But as soon as I understood the scoring and timing, it was really incredible to watch! Some people are very talented! I can’t even stand on a surfboard, let alone stay on it and ride waves!

As the day went on, more and more people flooded to the beach! Even though the weather was slightly miserable, everyone was still keen to watch the surfing! Even a few celebrities popped in to say hello! Who would have thought Lance (Buddy) Franklin and some of the other Sydney Swan players would enjoy the surfing! After the surfing had finished, we went to watch the NIKE SB skateboarding competition! That was awesome! How they jump so high in the air and not fall off and seriously hurt themselves, I will never know!
After the skateboarding, we went and watched Birds of Tokyo play a concert on the beach! All I can say is WOW! We were even lucky enough to receive a merchandise pack from Hurley! We can’t thank Red Herring Surf enough for this opportunity! We had the best time! I will definitely be going back to watch another surf competition in years to come! STOKED!

Lifeline - Sign the Petition!

on Tuesday, 08 April 2014. Posted in lifestyle

The Australian Government needs to ensure that Lifeline is properly funded

Red Herring Surf has been a proud supporter of Lifeline for a number of years now.

Lifeline’s vision is an Australia free of suicide. But this can only occur when suicide prevention is seen as a national priority.

Suicide kills more Australians than physical diseases. Research data shows suicide is the leading cause of death for people aged between 15 and 44 in this country.

Each day, six Australians take their own life – a figure almost double our annual road toll.

Together we can change this. Please help out and sign the petition here.
