Meet The Team

Schedule a call with an expert

Down the Line has been open since 1993, it has always been a true surfer's surf shop, hardware being the most important part of our business.

Every year we go to Oz to find the newest shapes for the store, we know all the shapers and work closely with them. In the past we have introduced the likes of Darren Handley and JS to Europe, to name just a couple. Now we're doing the same with the U.S.

We all surf and we all travel, between us we have covered every continent. We are the real deal, a true surf shop. Not a warehouse on an industrial estate.

   

We know about boards and we know about wetsuits...

Now meet the team!
