The Boardcast

The Boardcast

Boarders has played an integral role in Sydney's Northern Beaches skate scene since the late 90s, and owners Al and Claire have sat in the front seats as it's changed, grown and occasionally shrunk over the years. Along the way they've formed an eclectic community of skate and snow lovers who make the store what it is today. This podcast is an insight into our business and the community that makes it. We hope you'll want to be a part of it too.
