Surf factory outlets have sprung up all over the island and a few of the biggest are along the Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai, on your way to Kuta’s Dewaruci roundabout from the airport. You can’t miss them since they have ‘sale’ and ‘discount’ ads in front of them. But Bali has a selection of several serious signature surf stores
Drifter Surf Shop
Drifter is an entirely different approach to a surf store, but one that is more aimed at surf culture and the soul of surfing, conceived by Jake Mackenzie and Tim Russo, two surfers who live in Bali and have worked extensively in the surf industry. Step inside and you will find independent works by artists that are redefining a culture and generation. It aims to represent a side of the surf culture not marketed to the masses. The brands you’ll find here are those based on creativity as their core foundation and those that honor surfing for surfing. Boasting a coffee corner inside, Drifter is a place to chill and appreciate the fashion line of brands that you won’t find at regular stores in Bali.
Address: Jalan Kayu Aya, Seminyak
Deus Warung of Simple Pleasures
This neat shop along Jalan Kayu Aya in Seminyak is an extension of the Deus Ex Machina in Canggu. It is housing a full range of Deus Ex Machina fashion items and bags, handmade bikes, custom motorbikes and functional retro surfboards. In brief, it’s a great place for coffee, motorcycles, sandwiches, surfboards, bicycle tires, T-shirts, books, and wax. You can also find other surf brands in store.
