about walker bay surf & sport
Walker Bay Surf Shop, named after the magnificent bay the coastal town of Hermanus overlooks, opened its doors in 1993.
The unassuming 10m² store was originally set up to service a small core of local surfers, offering them everything they might need to fuel their passion for the sport.
A few years later, body boarding as a sport took off, making riding a wave accessible to people of all ages. Holidaymakers found it to be a quick and easy to master skill that took them into the Atlantic Ocean where there were plenty of waves to ride.
The shop grew rapidly to meet this new demand, expanding to the existing 95m² store in Harbour Road
Ian & Elaine Gibson take great pride in their store and with the help of their two teenagers Hylton and Chelsea, they source the best and most fashionable surf clothing and gear available. As the head honcho, Ian makes sure that the shop carries the widest range of wetsuits, boards and accessories available locally.
All four Gibbo's work in the shop backed up by the rest of the crew who have been with the shop for many years. All staff are very knowledgeable and keen to help customers of all ages.
With our new website we are showcasing the different brands and products you can find in our store. If a supplier has it on their website, we will try to get it in store for you.
