Meet the Wild on the Beach Team

Murray, Sharon, Daniel and Dallas Walding have been involved in surf culture and surf retail since the mid eighties, but felt that it was time to branch out and offer something new- the result is Wild on the Beach.

Murray had a brief career as a surf movie exhibitor and since those days has developed an archive of vintage, original surf movie, beach party, jazz and pop posters.His love of surfing and poster art led him into writing- his first book was ‘Blue Heaven –the Story of Australian Surfing’. He followed that with a stunning and definitive look at gig posters with the successful ‘Plastered-The Poster Art of Australian Popular Music’.
Following that he put together the definitive look at Australian surf collectables- ‘Surforama. ‘In between books he kept busy writing for various newspapers and magazines, plus holding down the drumming duties with west coast Victorian jazz party groovers- the Beachniks.

Sharon is our store’s major stylist and is responsible for snooping out just the right products, whether its beach themed candles, or funky picture frames and getting the shop layout just right. Its Sharon’s sense of style and eye for detail that pulls the whole store together. The use of color and lighting are Sharon’s main area of expertise and as soon as you walk through the door, the light breezy nature of the store hits you right between the eyes

Dan spends his time travelling the globe looking for opportunities to bring back the most exciting products he can lay his hands on. He’s raving about his latest finds in Europe and we can’t wait to see what he’s found when he gets back into the country, arms laden with goodies for the shop.

Dallas is our design guru. Working from inner city Melbourne, he’s responsible for the tech stuff, keeping our website fresh and exciting; casting his eyes over the new on-line store, and keeping us abreast with all that’s technical and new.

Christina Pham, our art designer. Working alongside Dallas she is responsible for the stunning design motifs that punctuate the store and liven up the website.
