Rainbow Beach Learn to surf t-shirt's

What does the artwork on our t-shirts mean?

Meaning of the Artwork

The meaning of the artwork is about people of different backgrounds coming to Rainbow Beach, to learn to surf and be in our place of paradise.  


Symbols represent the journey from your home to Rainbow Beach. As well as the experiences you share when you’re here.  The message sticks hold great knowledge, respect, and stories about the ocean in which we swim.


When we go somewhere different, we are reminded, or learn new ways, of looking at the world and ourselves. Take this home with you.
