In 1969, two Torquay locals, Alan Green and John Law, turned to making boardshorts in their home garage based on what they saw as a market opportunity. Authenticity, innovation, pride, confidence and a belief in limitless potential have been the foundations in Quiksilver becoming the largest and most prestigious apparel company in the action outdoor sports industry
Surf Dive n Ski
A comprehensive redesign to the existing cluttered and uninviting space transformed Surf Dive ‘n Ski at Byron Bay into a light filled and welcoming environment. The building was stripped back to show the original brickwork and concrete columns to create an urban feel for this fresh new concept. New fixtures were developed to suit the site with much of the timber being sourced locally. Reclaimed objects were obtained from local second hand stores within the Byron Bay area as an ode to the community and relaxed feel that is quintessential to this part of the world.

Volcom was founded in 1991 on the belief that there is a higher level of consciousness to be found within one’s self through the internal and external journeys that board-sports, music, art and film provide. The company prides itself on making quality apparel, outerwear, footwear and accessories that not only exemplify the lifestyle, but also enhance the ability to live it. By being the first to combine surfing, skating and snowboarding under one brand from inception a new future was forged and a generation of liberation was born. For over two decades Volcom has been TRUE TO THIS… the quest for Spiritual Intoxication.
The new JS Garage – a first-of-its-kind concept store right in the heart of town! Continuing our proud history with the area, which began in the late 90s through a partnership with the legendary Timperley brothers surf shops, the Garage is a hardware-focused shop stocking 150 of our latest board models – including the brand new HYFI technology. An essential range of accessories and limited release clothing will also be on the floor. Running the Garage are Tim Carroll and Wade Roberts, our two local experts who have both been in the surf industry for 10+ years. The boys have a long history of global surf travel and competitive surfing behind them, and easily met every requirement we had in our mission to find the perfect fit for the concept store’s day-to-day operations.
What was the former Maddog surf store in the heart of Byron’s industrial precinct, has recently been transformed to house what is the new Surfection store. This two-year-long surf shop evolution saw the original Maddog store stripped to its bones, paving the way for a fresh approach while treasuring the classic roots that continue to exist today.
The shop floor now boasts a carefully hand-picked and at times, exclusive board collection. Hung from the ceiling high rafters and curated in-store, high performance boards sit alongside classic collectors items. When it comes to board (and wave) preference, we don’t discriminate. The heritage of Byron and the surrounding hinterland has helped reshape Surfection’s approach to the current surfing landscape. It’s about appreciating the shapers’ craftsmanship, sharing the line up and surfing the perfect waves of Byron.

In April of 1969 Bill Conner was making and selling all kinds of fine handmade leathergoods. In the beginning, sandals were his most popular item but it wasn’t long until his original hats became his most sought after product. Bill’s Stockman leather hat was the first of its kind in Australia and he perfected a way to add a wire to the brim allowing the hat to become “shapeable”. Today his original design and construction method is world renowned and the quality of a B.C Leather hat is still unsurpassed.
Skullcandy came screaming into this world as the brainchild of notorious non-conformer and action sports product mastermind Rick Alden. One day as he was hauling to the top of a Park City peak for another powder run, he had to yank out his ear buds from his music player and use them to answer his phone. That’s when a simple but powerful idea hit him. What if there were headphones that could seamlessly switch from music to calls? And what if those headphones actually looked as good as they worked? That idea, on that chairlift, on that day, was the bedrock Skullcandy was built on.
