Our Story

Meet Blair, his wife Anna, daughter Ella and son Cace. Oh, and of course Mac the Retriever!

Barrel Point Surf is run by a Kiwi surfer and Dad who not only loves the water but loves helping others live their own adventures.

He first experienced surfing more than 30 years ago, and when he’s not out on the board himself, or busy running Barrel Point Surf, you might find him on New Zealand’s Waihi beach helping others experience the fun of catching their first wave or standing on a SUP board for the first time. After all, helping people ‘get out and do’ is the reason Barrel Point Surf exists.

A true ‘Mum & Pop’ business, Barrel Point Surf is all about helping make water sports accessible, wherever you are in the world. After all, a rashie* (not the price of the gear) should be the only barrier between you and the water. Questions? Need help choosing gear? Check out our blog or get in touch direct. Our experienced team can help you get exactly what you need (and nothing you don’t).

*Rashie \rash-ee\ noun. Kiwi slang for rash shirt.
