Updated: 9 February 2017
Surfing and the ocean are both a large part of the Australian lifestyle, but you cannot head down to the beach without the appropriate gear. We’ve found the best places to stock up on all your surfing needs before heading out on the water in your Billabong wetsuit.

Murray Smith Surf

Murray Smith – one of the most well-known surfing identities of Western Australia – started his own shaping business in a side room of his parents’ beachfront home in Scarborough. Relocating in the 1970s to his garage, Murray Smith Surf quickly took off the ground, and since the 80s, everyone who knows the name would head to his family-run business for all their surfing needs.

City Beach

The humble beginnings of City Beach back in 1985 lead this tiny shop in Brisbane to become a part of Australian life. Whether you are looking for hardware and accessories for your next day out on the water, or you’re looking for clothes, bathers, headwear or footwear, City Beach has a bit of everything – one place to easily shop all your favorite brands!

Address: 242 Murray St, Perth WA 6000, Australia, +61 8 9229 6380


Opened in 1986 by local surfer and shaper Chris McKenzie, Oceanline has since produced a variety of surfboards of all types.

Star Surf + Skate

In 1980, the late Western Australian surf legend Dave Kennedy opened Star Surf as one of the first shops dedicated purely to surfers, providing an extensive range of essentials from surfboards and wetsuits to wax. Since the passing of the legend in 2006, the new owners have continued Star Surf’s legacy as Western Australia’s board and beachwear specialists.
