If you’ve ever visited a Sydney surf shop, you’ve probably seen them advertise a new range of surfboards.
But if you’ve never heard of these surfboards, that’s not your fault.
They’re not the best surfboards on the market, or even surfboards at all.
And they’re not for sale at any shop in Sydney.
Aussie surfers know these surf boards better than anyone, so the only way to find out about them is to visit one of their locations.
They don’t even have the right equipment to test them, or test them well.
They have to go out to the surf and take a bunch of photos, to make sure the boards are right.
“It’s like a puzzle,” surfboard photographer Nick Gass says.
“I’ve been to surf shops and I’ve never seen anything like this before.
It’s just the surfboards and the gear that you’re going to get.
I’m just lucky enough to be able to have the experience.”

“I’m in the middle of a session and the shop owner’s a really nice guy and he just looks at me like, ‘Is that the best surfing gear?'”
Gass says the surfers have to be extremely precise with the photos taken in the shop.
“They have a camera on the board and it’s just like a lens on your phone, it’s like taking a photograph of yourself,” he says.
“They do a fantastic job and they’re very friendly, but you’ve got to be very careful.
They do have to get out there, they don’t have time to get back.
You’re taking a lot of photos to make a good image.”
Nick Gas says he loves the fact that Surf Shop has the equipment to make the photos.
Gass takes pictures of the equipment, and gives the surfboard owner a thumbs up.
But the best part is the fact they take a lot more photos than he does.
He’s been taking photos of Surf Shop for five years.
He takes pictures with his iPhone every day.
The surf shop is open seven days a week.
I went for lunch on a Thursday, and on Saturday afternoon the shop was closed, so I had to wait in line.
I didn’t know what to expect when I got to the shop, so once I walked in the first thing I saw was a line of people waiting.
It was very intimidating and I was scared to go in, but the shop owners are so friendly and they said, ‘You have to come in today’, and I did.
They said ‘You’re welcome to come to the next day’ so I did and it was pretty awesome.
One of the staff was talking to me about the gear, and she said, “This is the first time I’ve seen this gear.
It’s just so great.
I think it’s the best.”
