You’ll find over 150 surfboards made by craftsmen from around the world as well as the clothing brands, art and music to match
The concept at this men’s surf and leisure store, says shopkeeper Taylor, is that they only sell one clothing label at a time. During Time Out’s visit, they’re championing Banks – a local label that has American, Japanese and Manly roots. It’s quite the global mix, and their eclectic style includes khaki pants and stone-coloured board shorts as well as basic T-shirts. Accessories aren’t limited to one brand, so men of the Northern Beaches and beyond can pick up hair gel from Uppercut, cotton beach towels and felt Fedoras from Fallen Broken Street. Clothing aside, the Shop Next Door is a top spot for a new surfboard – they’ve got over 150 in store. Stop in for a long black at the coffee shop in the same store, and the staff will be happy to help you pick out a new wetsuit.
