On thr tip of the Llyn Peninsula in North Wales, Abersoch captivates, stimulates and revitalizes those who come to play on
its surrounding waters and beaches. The diversity of locations and conditions unique to this area make it a choice
spot amongst surfers, sailors and wakeboarders alike.
At OFFAXIS we are totally addicted. Once our former holiday destination, Abersoch has now been our home for many years now,
while some parts have changed the costline remains un-spoilt and continues to offer many activity options from Surfing,
Ktesurfing, windsurfing and wake/waterskiing.
We have two stores one in Abersoch on the one way sytem as you are leaving underneath Glanafon garage. This was our first location, whilst the shop is compacted there is plenty of stock, surfboards, wakeboards wetsuits and some summer clothing!
A more recent addition is our shop in Pwllheli where we have plenty of space. This shop is more focused for boating, with plenty of Ringo's / inflatables, SUP boards, Kayaks and wakeboards and waterskis. Not to mention the base for Nautique boats as the Authorised Welsh dealer and PCM dealer.
What ever your water related product needs are, we can help. Boasting the biggest range of water sports equipment in the area if we haven't got what you are after, chances are we can get it. Pop in and pay us a visit.
Offaxis (formerly) AOA was started by Tim Mackley and Johnny robinson down on the main beach in Abersoch in 1996. Abersoch Ocean Adventures was born, offering tuition in waterskiing wakeboarding, windsurfing and surfing.
One of the early Wakeboard comp riders, Johnny 'Tantrum'(as he became known), has been riding since boards had pointy
fronts and bindings were, shall we say in the early stages of development. Active involvement in the industry
over time has given Johnny a great insight into the developments of the sport and its equipment. He still rides,
but it tends to be when its really flat and sunny, and can still put down some solid tricks. A sports science
graduate, Johnny is a fully qualified beach life guard, BWS Wakeboard & Water Ski instructor, SBDA examiner,
BWS Instructor Trainer and BSA Instructor. An instinctive and nurturing teacher, Johnny's experience and knowledge
is on hand to guide you in the right direction.
Tomos is by far one of the most productive members of the team. Known as the bad boy of the group, Tomos is a keen
mechanic/cleaner and can be found either changing the oil on the Clwb Land Rover or valeting a random car (so
feel free to inquire for prices)! With invaluable local knowledge of the surrounding waters and area, Tomos is
one of the latest wakeboard instructors to pull through the ranks with an SBDA and BWS Wakeboard and Water Ski
instructors qualification. When heavily persuaded to let someone else drive his precious boat, Tomos also loves
a good shred!
The sly dawg of the team. Jamie is a dark horse. He would rather ride than talk about it and shows the grommets along
with some of the old boys how its done behind the boat. With the ladies starting to pay attention to his riding
skills, Jamie has to take shelter at the skate park where he shows the rest of the team the raw skills that he
has developed on a skateboard since he was a nipper. While in work, Jamie can now be found on the boat alongside
Tomos or another grommet teaching or ripping with his newly acquired qualifications. Jamie has recently been
requested several times for private surf lessons by female customers. Know one knows if this is because of his
surfing expertise or his good looks?
Also known as Abs, Abi is without doubt the most organized and efficient member of the team. She has an extensive
knowledge of all the shop products and also takes on the near impossible job of keeping all the boys in check!
When she isn't in the shop, Abi loves to pull out a few tasty tricks on the wakeboard and has even been spotted
around the local surf spots once or twice!
