Action Outdoor Hire - Gold Coast - Tallebudgera Creek

Winter Solstice

Winter Solstice

Today is Winter Solstice in Australia - the shortest day of the year - a day to celebrate for most Aussies, not because it’s the shortest day of the year, but because the days will start to get longer again!👏

So what are your plans for winter solstice? 

We went to the beach while it was still dark this morning and saw a lot of groms paddling out for a sunrise surf before school. How great is growing up on the Gold Coast?!! We saw a few people out on stand up paddle boards and kayaks around Tallebudgera Creek, a few fishermen, and of course all the usual faces out for an early bike ride, walk or run well before the light of day. It’s such a great time of day to be outdoors. 

After work today we’ll ride our bikes up to Burleigh Heads for the Winter Solstice Festival in James Street 5-9pm. There will be all sorts of free entertainment and plenty of winter warming food to indulge in. 

In between we will be open all of this beautiful day long delivering our hire stand up paddle boards, kayaks, surfboards, bodyboards and bicycles. 

Did you know it’s also International Yoga day today? If you’re out on the SUPs today, why not challenge yourself with a bit of SUP yoga!🤸‍♀️

Happy Winter Solstice!☀️

A birthday sunrise stand up paddle

A birthday sunrise stand up paddle

This fabulous fit and strong woman turned 60 today!🎉.. and what better way to start a new year and a new decade than a sunrise SUP with friends.

We hit the water at Tallebudgera Creek just after 6am and around 12°C.. we thought it would be a lot colder so we were a little over-dressed but pleasantly surprised.

A quick and hard paddle up the creek to start the day with a nice workout, then drifted back out with the tide in time to see the beautiful sunrise at the river mouth!🌅

Then a nice hot coffee at Neptune’s Kiosk aka Bam Bam’s.. hot tip: get the twice baked almond croissant!🤤

It was a magical start to the day for all, especially the birthday girl, who’s had a great workout and earned all the cake and drinks! Happy birthday!🎂🥂

If you’d like to experience a sunrise or sunset paddle on stand up paddle boards or kayaks for a special occasion or just because, give us a call to discuss our flexible hours or overnight hire.

Winter school holidays on the Gold Coast

Winter school holidays on the Gold Coast

Heading to the Gold Coast with the family these school holidays? It’s such a lovely time of year on the coast, and perfect bike riding weather. 

The Gold Coast boasts more than 1000km of on road and off road bikeways, and more than a dozen bmx/skate parks. Queensland cycling laws do allow cyclists to ride on footpaths, as long as you always give way to pedestrians. Yes helmets are required by law and come with all of our hire bikes.

You can find bmx/skate park locations or check out the bikeway maps and plan your bike riding trip ahead by logging onto www.goldcoast.qld.gov.au 

We have adults and kids hire bikes, as well as baby seats and tag along trailers. All of our hire bikes come with helmets and locks. We also hire skateboards, helmets and pads.  

We definitely recommend booking ahead of your trip as our hire bikes are popular at this time of year. We offer delivery to the Gold Coast and Tweed Coast.

Get outdoors and enjoy the winter sunshine!🌞

Learn to surf on a soft surfboard on the Gold Coast

Learn to surf on a soft surfboard on the Gold Coast

Keen to give surfing a go? 

Whether you’ve had a lesson with one of the awesome surf schools around the Gold Coast and Tweed Coast, watched a few YouTube videos, or just want to get out in the surf and give it a go, a soft surfboard is the best option for every beginner surfer. 

Soft boards are stable and buoyant making it easier to paddle and stand up. The super strong construction is difficult to damage. Most importantly, the soft deck and plastic fins greatly reduce the risk of injury to yourself and others around you. All of these elements add up to give you more confidence in the surf.

Call us to hire a beginner’s soft surfboard. We can deliver to your accommodation anywhere on the Gold or Tweed Coast, or meet you at the beach! Wetsuits available too.
