Blitz Surf Shop is a Gisborne icon. It is the second oldest established surf shop in New Zealand and has been providing the people of Gisborne, the East Coast and all our welcome visitors with the latest surf gear and fashion since 1983. Blitz changed hands in December 2009 and we plan to continue keeping our valued customers provided with the latest and greatest gear whilst continuing to build our reputation throughout New Zealand and the surfing world. We are a family business, locally owned and operated.  July 2012 was the time to lead the Gisborne surf shops on to the web with the launch of our original online store so we can continue to provide customers from further afield with a great shopping experience. At the end of March 2017 we launched our new FREE HD Live Stream surf cam which you can access through our website to see what the swell and wind conditions are like at the southern end of Wainui Beach. We wanted to provide this service to the public for free to give our thanks for supporting our small local business over the years. We are extremely grateful for all of support.  And June 2023 sees the launch of our updated and upgraded online store to provide a better user experience and function for customers all over the country.


We stock a wide range of new surfboards including longboards, high performance shortboards, fish, SUPs and everything in between from price point to top end. We do our best to cover all surfers with good quality, lower priced surfboards for beginners all the way to some of the most sought after premium surfboard brands in the world like Firewire, JS Industries, Slater Designs, and Surftech.


There's always a great range of wetsuits and surfing accessories from the best selling, most popular brands and we always have plenty of on sale bargains instore and online from the previous season. We hold a good stock of bodyboards from boards for the little kids right up to the barrel hunting serious lid riders. And we have an enviable skate section of premium Carver Surfskates, completes, longboards and cruisers, decks, protective gear and more. If there is anything that you are looking for and haven't been able to find then just get in touch and the crew at Blitz will endeavour to get it for you.
