Burra Bike & Board is owned and operated by Culburra Beach local James Morton, and his wife Lucy, along with two salty groms and a scruffy beach hound. Morto grew up surfing the South Coast from Gerroa to Jervis Bay, and exploring the Shoalhaven River from his childhood home at Longreach, west of Nowra.
After a stint travelling the world, completing tertiary education in Central West NSW, and working in Sydney, he returned to Culburra Beach, which he still rates as one of the best surf spots for beginners and experienced frothers alike.
Burra Bike & Board was borne out of the sense exploring by bike, board, or paddle was the best way to experience our South Coast villages.
“Learning to surf and fanging around on a bike makes for a great holiday, whether it’s a family,
couples, or bunch of friends,” James explains.
Local knowledge of the area and conditions is another part of the hire service that sets Burra Bike & Board apart. Knowing where to go based on your experience and the weather, wind and swell conditions at the time makes all the difference to whether you have a fun day or end up battling the infamous ‘NorEaster’ the whole time.
We love local
James & Lucy have lived and worked in the Culburra Beach and Shoalhaven communities for the past 15 years.
We want Burra Bike & Board to be as much for locals as it is for visitors.
That’s why we have committed to partnering with and supporting other local organisations where we can.
Right from our launch, we are proud to support selected local projects, including the Burradise Festival, Frankies Coffee Van, Culburra Beach Boardriders and the Lake Wollumboola
While you’re in ‘the Burra’, we urge you to love local, too.
How we work
We are open SEVEN DAYS over Easter!
During ‘term time’, our shop is open every weekend, from Friday to Sunday, 9am — 3pm. During school holidays and long weekends, we will be open SEVEN DAYS, although our hours may be flexible to best cater to customer’s needs. Stay tuned to our socials for special opening hours.
If the shop door isn’t open, you can still make a booking online, return hire items, or make enquiries at any time. If you really need to see us, we are also only a phone call away… and usually a short walk from the surf to meet you if we can. Call James on 0438833512.
