Hi all and welcome to TLS Aus & NZ,

Sarah & James

For us (Sarah and James), Lennox Head NSW locals, we have been in and around the surf culture and ocean for many years, and have become familiar with most surf hardware available in the market. With any new business venture, there are a number of things to take into account before any 'handshake' to seal the deal.

One of the most important factors when deciding to take on TLS was feeling confident we could stand wholeheartedly behind the brand.

One of the most important factors when deciding to take on TLS was feeling confident we could stand wholeheartedly behind the brand.

So, the decision with TLS wasn't difficult. A strong, reliable, long lasting product which is developed with impeccable attention to detail and quality workmanship, and vigorously tested in big waves resulting in proven performance... no more to be said. 

Add to this is the hands on approach taken by TLS International founder, Satoshi Sekino, a former pro-surfer himself, who is instrumental in all aspects of design and development guaranteeing a meticulous level of care and consideration goes into each TLS product. This hands on method can be rare in todays market, making TLS solid from the top down.

We saw the potential of TLS, and have hit the ground running by embarking on ways to build the brand recognition TLS deserves. Whilst it is a business, there is so much more that fulfils us both and increases our drive to 'do better' and 'be better' both as humans and to our current and future retail partners. 

We have the privilege of sponsoring some great surfers across Australia, who live and breathe the ocean, all things surf and have a heap of gratitude on board. Knowing we contribute even just a little toward that is awesome! Again, we wanted to ensure we could stand behind our team and support them with reliable products they can really trust in whilst witnessing their surfing journey's and careers.

With the fresh new vibe underway, new website, and new faces, we are both super pumped and committed to throwing everything toward TLS across Australia and New Zealand, with some exciting plans in the pipeline already underway.

Over the next few months, you will find TLS International athletes Connor O'Leary & Matt Wilkinson (Wilko) joining us out in the water for a photoshoot whilst promoting their favourite TLS products and doing what they love most.  

We're excited about the journey ahead. 



Sarah & James.
