A vision for the community
Fred le Roux a well-known local surfer, kiteboarder, Stand Up Paddler and Kayak Fisherman has been in Richards Bay since the ‘80’s. He’s passionate about watersports and his enthusiasm is infectious! On 3rd December 2011, Fred’s shop, Freedom Surf and Water Academy opened its doors to the community.
A home on the way home
The ambience of the shop is a "home" for the fraternity and aside from getting excellent advice on whatever hardware you may require, there’s always coffee in the percolator, DVD’s on the TV screen and congenial company to be had. Our History Wall (very close to Fred’s heart) is growing daily and makes interesting reading.
A growing list of stock items
As much of our focus is on the community, the shop is a work in progress, so if you don’t find what you’re after, please tell us? And don’t forget, if what you’re looking for isn’t there on your first visit, remember to come back in a week or two to check out what’s new!
