If someone says they are a Hawaiian local, you don’t mess with them, right? The 662 Bodyboard Shop fits right into that category. The store was founded in Hawaii, and has now expanded into Australia with 662bodyboardshop.com.au . You got a problem with that? Huh? No? I didn’t think so…
662 Bodyboard Shop opened it’s virtual doors back in 2004, so it’s definitely not a new kid on the block, and their range of bodyboards (categorised neatly into 5 categories; prone, dropknee, big boys, girls and kiddies), is certainly testament to their knowledge of what the customer wants and needs.
662 Bodyboardshop’s online store is a little more limited in choice than some of the other online bodyboard stores in Australia, but perhaps they subscribe to the principle of quality of quanity (you can decide for yourself – www.662bodyboardshop.com.au). For example, in the “Prone” section of the site at the time of writing, there were 46 different boards available, we were actually expecting a few more. Turbo, Empire, BZ, NMD, Toys and VS bodyboards are some of their key board brands. Clothing is also a bit random, from VS bodyboard tshirts through to RVCA boardshorts, DC bucket hats and Tapout hoodies. Let’s face it, you probably wouldn’t turn to 662 to get a new wardrobe of bodyboarding clothing now would you.

As we mentioned earlier, the 662 Bodyboard Shop concept originated in Hawaii, which definitely gives them some serious street cred! The Australian HQ for 662 is located near Sydney, Australia, however they do not have a physical store, only the online store:
