About Us


It was 2012 in Newcastle, Australia, and 4 foot offshore, a big storm front was approaching and some dolphins decided to join us. This is when we said: “This is the best thing ever, I Love Surfing”. So in between sets we started talking about sharing this feeling with a surfing community. Share our love for the ocean and the way of life that draws us back to it again and again.  It was there and then that we decided to do just that, and that’s how I Love Surfing was formed while doing the very thing we love so much.

Over the next years we built an international online and offline community of surfers who share our stoke. Our community page remains the blue heart of our brand. This is where we can invest in a better world, by sharing inspiring stories from all over the world. We also tell our own story. How we experience the surf scene. We travel to destinations and tell about local legends, give surfing tips, do reviews and much more.

Now we’ve also started this online surf shop where we aim to give you the best shopping experience. We only offer top quality and brand new products. We work closely with surf distributors in Europe and have reliable shipping partners. Because we are keen surfers ourselves we understand how difficult it can be to find the right product. So we promise to help you make this decision. We provide full customer support and try to inform you as much as possible.

Lastly, but perhaps most importantly, we pledge to give back by planting trees to reduce our CO2 footprint.

The I Love Surfing Shop Team.
