Cordingley’s was established in 1962 by the Cordingley brothers and is Perth’s oldest surviving surf shop. From the time the brothers shaped and sold their first boards, the name has become synonymous with hardcore surf culture in WA.
Although Cordingley surfboards have been shaped and distributed from a number of eclectic locations around Perth in the past, Scarborough Beach has been the store’s home for over 35 years now and provides the perfect environment for a surf store committed to the true essence of the sport.
Ever since the Plank Road was constructed in 1912 linking Perth’s inner suburbs with the ocean, people have flocked to Scarborough Beach to enjoy the sun, sand, surf and lifestyle that comes with one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
From tearing up the Snake Pit, grabbing a bite to eat at Peter’s by the Sea or skating the iconic Clocktower, Scarborough is the home of so many memories and stories for literally every generation around today.
Visually, Scarborough is in a constant state of change. Landmarks such as the hyper-recognisable Luna Park and the Scarborough Beach Hotel have come and gone, and in the very recent past Scarborough has become home to a range of fresh hangouts; Scarborough pool, skate park and bowl, play grounds and sunset hill.
