Dee Why. End of an Era: 1. LineUp Surf, gone after 22 years. 2. Rob’s Eye on Dee Why moving soon

Posted by: on January 25th, 2013

Well folks, LineUp Surf in Dee Why is no more.

With increasing rents and declining retail margins, Mr. Ryan has decided to focus on Surf Travel and surfing lessons and to close the iconic LineUp Surf shop that has graced The Strand in Dee Why for 22 years. You can still book online surf travel and surfing lessons on the LineUp Surf site at  R.I.P LineUp Surf.


I took a few photos on the last day of business. Here’s the link if you can see it here:


Also after more than 22 years, on 6 Feb, I’ll also pulling out of Dee Why and  heading west to the sunny shores of Western Australia and alas, “Rob’s Eye on Dee Why” will be no more.  Hoping to continue the RealSurf report from another perspective on the other side of town, so to speak, so you may continue to hear from me.

Oh, the surf –small mushy ones from the E.  A couple of crumbly ones on the Point, similar up the beach.
