A relatively new-comer to the online bodyboard shop scene in Australia, iBodyboardstarted in Maroubra (yep, home of the ‘bra boys) in Sydney’s eastern suburbs in June 2009.
iBodyboard’s online bodyboard shop is jam packed full of boogin’ goodies (see for yourself at www.ibodyboard.com.au). They offer probably one of the widest assortments of surf related gear we’ve seen in any online bodyboard store we’ve reviewed, from entry level cheapies through to ultra high performance boards, bodyboarding accessories, and even some slightly more obscure gear like bikinis for the ladies, nipper boards, foamy surfboards & standup paddleboards….heck they even sell scooters (not that we’d ever be caught dead on one of those things!).

iBodyboard is one of the only online bodyboard stores in Australia that doesn’t also have a physical ‘bricks and mortar’ store to compliment their online offering. However, if you live in Sydney you can actually arrange to pick up your purchases, just contact them directly and they’ll give you the full address (we can only provide the suburb below for privacy reasons):
- iBodyboard, Kingsford, 2032, NSW
What makes iBodyboard.com.au unique:
The coolest thing about iBodyboard.com.au is how diverse the product range is. Of course, they stock all the usual suspects like the latest NMD and VS bodyboards, leashes, fins and board covers….but they also have a few really random items on their virtual shelves that most other bodyboard stores wouldn’t be game to stock. Despite their daggy-ness, a these products actually made us smile….you know, stuff like knee pads for grommies learning to skate and those old school fluro Shark watches from the early 90′s.
Also, the guys at iBodyboard offer free shipping for orders over $100 (but we reckon they should charge you double postage though if you are buying a scooter or standup paddle board).
