ocean & earth concept area
Ocean & Earth was founded by Brian Cregan and Graham Williams's, but was later established by Brian Cregan and partners in 1978 producing a couple of basic surfing products and a staff of three. Ocean & Earth slowly grew by establishing a network of retailers throughout NSW & Southern Qld (Australia). Staff knowledge of surfing helped with product development but many other areas of business were developed via trial and error.
The domestic distribution covered the majority of the main surfing areas by the early eighties and some small export sales were achieved by “word of mouth” contacts made by Brian Cregan in his travels surfing around the world. First production was done in an old four-room house and converted shop front. This soon became inadequate and in 1986 a 500sqm factory was built which greatly improved efficiency for the business that was growing at a rate of 30-40% per year. Initial distribution direct from Sussex Inlet was replaced by a distributor in each state and sales servicing for all of NSW was done by a permanent sales person operating from the factory at Sussex Inlet.
By the mid to late eighties the Ocean & Earth product range had grown significantly to encompass a broad range of surfing accessories, backpacks and a small range of clothing which still is the backbone of the company today.
We’ll keep water icy cold on a hot sunny beach. And serve up a hot coffee on the chairlift ride. We’ll sit patiently by your camp chair with frosty cold beer while you gather wood for the fire. Or keep you hydrated on a hike: ice, water, go. And five hours later, after driving to the trailhead and climbing 2,000 feet, you’ll still have ice and water while you enjoy the view. We’ll bring you hot tea on misty riverside mornings when the steelhead are running, hot cocoa to coax your kids along a snowy trail, and a refreshing sip of “all-about-you” during Saturday afternoon yoga. We’re not just along for the ride. We’re along to help make the ride awesome.
