About us

GIANT South Coast was the third Giant concept store to open in South Africa, after the Durbanville and George shops in the Cape. It was the first of its kind in KwaZulu­Natal.


Owners, Wayne and Julie Tarr have had Wayne’s World, a bike and fishing shop in Kokstad for the past five years alongside their other businesses and, after a planning phase of almost two years, the new flagship store GIANT South Coast at Southcoast Mall, Shelly Beach, has finally become a reality.


Giant South Coast is privileged to have the backing of Dragons Sports, the SA importer of Giant Bicycles, in taking the brand to a new level locally and on an equivalent format to the international Giant Concept Stores. Giant is the world’s largest bike manufacturer and produces bicycles to suit anyone’s requirements, from children's bikes, through the recreational cruisers, right up to the full carbon performance race bikes used by top amateurs and professionals.


We offer an extensive range of spares,  accessories, nutritional supplents, a full workshop, as well as the bikefitting.com set up system.


A first worldwide is the fact that Giant South Coast also boasts a fresh water angling section, focused on bass fishing. Wayne, a former provincial elite triathlete and duathlete, is now a competitive veteran cyclist, as well as a Protea Bass Angler. He is on hand at the shop to ensure that customers receive  the best advice and service in both the cycling and angling fields.
