GODFATHERS OF THE OCEAN
ABOUT GODFATHERS OF THE OCEAN
Godfathers of the Ocean surf school was founded in April 2001. It was established by Krista Barry, wife of former World Professional Surfer, Michael ‘Munga’ Barry. Their drive and passion created a surf school business that inspires all ages to enjoy the thrill of surfing and the healthy lifestyle that it brings.
All Things Web was engaged to redesign an existing, ageing website, and develop the new site to be mobile-friendly and search engine optimised.
We designed the new site to represent the professionalism of the owners as well as convey the genuine passion for the school and what its trying to achieve in providing fun and safe lessons for its students of all ages and experience levels.
We built their new website on Joomla! CMS to make promotion of their popular surf lessons easy for their team to manage, especially during busy school holiday periods. It integrates with their booking system to keep calendar management and payment processing simple.
Our professional services include:
custom design, capturing the essence of the business’ values
developing the new website on Joomla! CMS, a cost-effective, flexible and powerful content management system which we configured and customised to suit the business needs
developing a custom template to bring the design concepts to life on screen, with particular care taken for mobile and tablet devices
dynamic content for key messages, videos and blog posts
integration with their existing booking system
integration with MailChimp, Instagram, YouTube, Facebook and Google Maps
online store to sell surfboards
custom online forms, using database storage to record submissions
training nominated administrators and providing custom documentation to manage online store and website content.
We now provide ongoing services to help the Godfathers of the Ocean team keep the website up to date, including further documentation and training as required, maintaining CMS software and security, and hosting.
