About NorthCore

NorthCore Surf and Skate was founded back in 2010 by long time Richards Bay resident Rheinhard du Toit, or RDT as he is known. He has always been passionate about surfing, bodyboarding, skating and sports in general and decided to share this passion and experience with others through his retail store, board rentals and surf lessons.

RDT is a former provincial team captain, committee member and valued member of the Northern KZN Bodyboarding Association and has represented the province at National events for over a decade. Rheinhard's passion for customer satisfaction has now spilled over into serving people as he now serves coffee and light meals as part of the shopping experience.

So if you are looking for a new board, the latest trendy pair of surf baggies or just keen for a slice of cake and a good coffee... Come and visit the team at NorthCore.. get your coffee and retail fix in one go!
