who we are

who we are

Although our business originated in 1999, with the opening of our shop in the Elizabeth Shopping Centre, the history of JT Surf and Skate spans back somewhat further.  Our company is the brainchild of husband and wife team Judy Zorich and Tom Zorich, the latter having a long history in sports retail having held the position of Managing Director of Sportspower and Sports Lover from 1986 to 1995.  After Tom and Judy successfully launched sports stores in the couple felt they would be successful in entering the marketplace with an outlet that specifically served the surfing community.  It is from those beginnings that we have continually expanded, now operating four stores under our JT Surf and Skate brand -- Gawler, Elizabeth, Munno Para and Harbour Town. We are also proud to be part of a larger enterprise, the Zorich Group.  For more information about this company, please click here to visit Zorich Group website.

 

But, for us, business is just part of the equation — passion for the communities that we serve has always been at the core of everything we do. 

This commitment to our customers is reflected in all aspects of our business, from the quality of our brands and products, through to our extraordinary customer service.  Simply put, we strive to do everything possible to ensure that our customers are well-equipped in all aspects, in terms of the actual products they buy, through to the knowledge, service, and respect we are able to offer them.
