At SurfStitch we tend to attract staff with a bit of an adventurous spirit. We just love being outside – barefoot wandering, feeling the dirt in between our toes, saltwater hair, wind on our faces. With quite a few staff working out of SurfStitch HQ on the Gold Coast we have a mix of surfers, skateboarders and snowboarders which means that any given month someone could be shredding in Japan or island hopping in Indonesia, fuelling their wanderlust.

We wanted to share a little bit of our outdoor lifestyle with you.

Meet David from Customer Service:

“Skateboarding for me these days is more an excuse to turn a typically mundane task into an enjoyable activity in itself. Filling the gaps between home -> surf -> coffee -> work. The walk/drive may seem like chore but if you’re ripping and weaving between obstacles on the way; you’re living the saying ‘happiness is in the journey, not the destination’.  Be warned: if you’re choosing your destinations wisely, you may develop a facial imbalance because the muscles used to frown will be fairly unused.

Oh, man. How great is it when you learn something cool? Watch this and learn the story behind Penny Skateboards, and their founder Ben Mackay. This brings us back to the dream days of childhood!

“From a young age skateboarding has inspired me and influenced every area of my life. Here I am at the age of 5 on my first ever plastic skateboard. I asked dad to move the Kingswood out of the garage so I could make this kicker ramp. I got my board second hand, and painted it blue with gold pinstripes. I thought it was the badest thing ever. Once I conquered the garage, I started bombing hills. It was terrifying, it was exhilarating, it was bliss. Almost 30 years on I realized it was time, time to bring that little plastic board back, and back for good. “
