Standing Eight supports Media Man Australia - 25th August 2003

Standing Eight is the latest company to support Media Man Australia.

Media Man Australia director, Greg Tingle, is yet another very happy customer of Standing Eight, based at Coogee Beach.

Greg's daughter, Michelle, needed a quality wetsuite, and fast, and s8 came to the rescue.

Via Greg's mate, Neil Cameron, of Bushrat Surfboards, MMA made contact with S8 owners, Brad Carroll and Olivia Skene.

Michelle Tingle will be testing the wetsuite this weekend up the coast in the Seal Rocks area.

Standing Eight main products include: latest Clothing, wetsuits, skateboards, skate accessories, alternative CD's, custom surfboards, surf accessories.

Main brands include: Volcom, MCD, Juice, Cult, One teaspoon, Mermaid Sister, Elwood, Zero, Element, Deeds clothing, After The Girl, Kitten, Fox racing, Sponsored and many more.

Standing Eight has been operating successfully for over 18 months.

The mission of the shop is to create an environment where people feel they belong. For to long surf shops have become sterile franchised money making machines. Standing Eight's main goal is to give the customer great shopping experience. They also offer a range of clothing slightly different to your normal surfshops, a perfect mix of surf, skate and streetwear. They pride themselves on not following the crowd.

Brad says, "There is nothing we won't do for our customers. We do a lot of special orders for people from wetsuits and surfboards to DVD's and clothing. If we don't have it we will do anything we can to get it".

Media Man Australia director knows this to be the case, having received first class treatment all the way.

Where did the name "Standing Eight" come from, I hear you ask?

It's taken from the boxing rule, Standing Eight Count, where a boxer is given a
count of eight to decide if he wants to continue.

Surfing, skating and many other board sports have moments like this when you have to look inside yourself and decide if you are willing to put your fear
aside and commit yourself 100%. It may be trying to ollie a huge set of
stairs or just paddling out in the biggest surf of your life. Standing Eight
believe that you must always push yourself to break through your limits.

Greg Tingle says, "if you want great surfing or skate gear, with top service, and the right price, you can't go past these guys". They get the job done, when others can't, and at the right price. Nothing seems impossible at Standing Eight".
