Roberts Surfboards: "Roberts Surfboards and a thing called Destiny"

We were aware of Roberts Surfboards several years before Robert Weiner was awarded Shaper of the Year in 2011 by Surfer Magazine, an award definitely changed things for Robert. I will admit it certainly pushed our desire to feature Roberts Surfboards alongside our other premium Surf brands here at The Surfboard Warehouse. That said, the Surf Industry is a strange, untamed beast and without an "in" it's often times hard to connect with a brand you want to carry. So how did we finally connect with Roberts Surfboards?!? Please read on.

If you've visited our site over they years you know we've carried FireWire Surfboards for some time, that was thanks to a connection FireWire has with our sister company Finatic. What you might not know is in the time since we started carrying FireWire we've become one of their largest dealers in the US. It was that status along with another connection between Channel Islands Surfboards and Finatic that enabled The Surfboard Warehouse to carry Channel Islands Surfboards about a year ago. Obviously, another hit with The Surfboard Warehouse crowd, but Roberts Surfboards was going to be different. No one here had a connection there and we never happened to cross paths with Roberts Surfboards at Surf Expo and as the years passed, the dream of carrying Roberts Surfboards seemed just that, a dream.

With all hope of carrying Roberts Surfboards lost, we just focused on everything else we sell and continued business as usuall, but as mentioned, destiny is a funny thing. As it turns out, one of the guys at the warehouse comes in one morning and tells us out of the blue, "Hey guys, I'm pretty sure my cousins uncle is the new Florida Rep. for Roberts Surfboards." No one said a word. Finally, someone broke the silence and replied, "So, you think you can get in touch with him or what?" The next thing we know, there he was in the flesh, the Florida sales rep. for Roberts Surfboards. Better yet, believe it or not, Roberts Surfboards didn't (at that point) have a single Florida account AND was looking for someone to be the go to for online sales... Divine intervention my friends. Here we are, the first Surf Shop in Florida to carry Roberts Surfboards and in the prime position to do what we do with every brand we sell, kill it in the online sphere.

At The Surfboard Warehouse we all surf, we care and we want you to get the right Roberts Surfboard if that's what you decide on.
