MANDURAH surf shop Star Surf + Skate was named Single Door Australian Retailer of the Year at the 2019 Surf and Boardsports Industry Association Awards.

The annual awards night recognises Australia’s best brands, products, environmental initiatives, retail performers and marketing campaigns as well as playing an essential role in celebrating the uniqueness of the surf industry.

Star Surf + Skate Mandurah has been on the Mandurah foreshore for 21 years and caters to surfers at all levels and ages and for the past four years has been the office for Mandurah Surf Lessons.

Star has won awards for being the State’s best retailer before but never a national award.

Store owner Ian Macpherson said he was proud of the award but even prouder of being able to give back to the Mandurah community.

“We are stoked,” he said.

“To be recognised as the National best single door Surf Retailer of the Year is an absolute honour and a great testament to all the hard work that all the team have put into the business over the past few years.”
