Interview: Rhythm’s Marc Llewellyn Marc Explains The Burleigh Heads Surf Culture
SWELL: Walk us through a typical day working at Rhythm in Burleigh?
Marc: The boys normally have a little pre-work surf and the girls will do their pilates, yoga, walks or swims. A lot of us meet for coffee at Canteen then head into the office. Everyone’s pretty flat out all day but there’s definitely a lot of laughs, dance-breaks, fun and kookiness thrown amongst the seriousness.
SWELL: What is it about the Styles down there that are always 2 steps ahead of trends in the States?
Marc: Shorter leg trunks 17 “– 15 ”
SWELL: Best Campsite in Burleigh area?
Marc:There’s a couple of campsite’s in Burleigh ~ Burleigh Heads Tourist Park and Tallebudgera Creek Tourist Park ~ Although a lot of people will just camp out in their vans along the headland carpark.
SWELL: Best after-surf food in town?
Marc:Justin Lane Pizza, The Pocket and Canteen.
SWELL: Best/Worst Parts about the Quiky Pro coming to Town?
Marc: Best: You get to see some great surfing and lose your marbles at some solid parties. Worst: The crowds, picking up the pieces from the night before, the crowds and the crowds.
SWELL: Who’s super creepy white van is that? Probably wouldn’t go parking that near any schools….
Marc: Ahhh that was Ellis Ericson’s van in Indo. Our boy Jack Lynch was staying with him and they did a little mission to some secret points up the coast in it.
SWELL: What Advice would you give to tourists lookin for a good time around Burleigh?
Marc:Just enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and beauty of the place. The waves, the national park, the people and the restaurants. Be respectful and if you want to party, head up to Cambus Wallace in Nobby’s Beach.
