Tonik Surf Centre - Logo

Have you ever seen this logo and wondered what it belonged to?

Born in 1999, Tonik opened its doors on the 4th of September in Hitchcock Avenue, Barwon Heads.

From its early days as a small family run business, Tonik has grown to iconic status thanks to the branding of its trademark logo.

The brainchild of Tony and Niki Nurnaitis, Tonik expanded its operations to open a second store in the Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre in 2003.

Both stores provide unique shopping experiences – Barwon Heads holding the original coastal surf store title with its diverse range of clothing and hardware while Waurn Ponds caters for a different audience with its more intimate layout and focus on fashion.

The Waurn Ponds store reopened in its premium location within the Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre in August 2007 and now offers a boutique alternative to the raw Barwon Heads store.

A strong competitor in the local Surf industry, Tonik is renowned for its fashion forward stock holding with Insight, RVCA, Birds of a Feather, I Love and Hurley to name just a few of the iconic brands it stocks.

For those with a more traditional sense of surf and leisure style, Tonik offers all the major brands – Billabong, Quiksilver and Rip Curl.

Headed by a team of dedicated people, Tonik places a huge emphasis on putting the right product in the right place for the best people in the surf retail business to sell.

Priding itself on its exceptional customer service, we invite you to visit one of our stores for a “Tonik Experience” you will never forget.
