Beach Life - Douglas Lloyd Jenkins
Our freight rates are calculated, depending on the size of the item/s you have in your order. The rates apply for the largest item in your order.
For Example: If you make the purchase of 3x beanies and 1x snowboard, as a snowboard is a largest item within the order, the large item shipping rate is applied. All smaller items are therefore freight-free. We also cap the freight costs at $15/$20 (within NZ) and cover any additional costs internally.

As a general rule, orders will be dispatched from our Queenstown store, on the next business day after payment is received. Sometimes, we might achieve same day dispatch, however this is not guaranteed. All orders are freighted via standard security freight, utilising several different Third Party couriers, depending on product ordered and delivery address. Dispatch will usually take 1-3 business days from leaving our store. Freight for items/destinations outside of normal regions, should be negotiated prior to dispatch.
Click and Collect - With online purchases, the customer has an option to personally collect from our NZSHRED store at 19 Shotover Street, Queenstown. These purchases are freight & handling free-of-charge.
Please note all Paddlebaords and Surfboards are Click and Collect ONLY.
A fascinating account of how the beach has influenced New Zealand lifestyle, culture and identity.
Experiencing beach life is simply part of being a New Zealander. It has helped shape our annual summer holiday, the games we play, the clothes we wear and the houses we build. It has also played an important role in the development of Kiwi identity.
In this compelling and generously illustrated exploration of beach life over the last 90 years, writer, historian and style commentator Douglas Lloyd Jenkins examines how attitudes towards the beach have evolved and how the beach – a hot bed of hedonistic pleasures as well as a magnet for holidaying families – has in turn brought about important social change. Open to all, yet increasingly fringed with expensive property accessible only to the rich, the New Zealand beach has always been a place of extremes
In Beach Life, Lloyd Jenkins provides a colourful account of the pioneering trends and pivotal influences that have shaped Kiwis enduring attraction to the beach and the lasting impact the beach has had on every aspect of New Zealand society.
