Welcome to Boards In The Bay - Byron Bays longest running, independant surf shop - established in 2008.

Boards in the Bay is a true surf hardware store, located in the heart of Byron Bay CBD and just a stones throw from the ocean. We have everything you need to get in the water, and nothing you don't! 

All our Surfboards are Surfer built - mostly within a 95 km of the store - using the highest quality materials, and proven manufacturing techniques. Providing you with the best performance, durability and value possible.

No matter your surfing level, you will surf better, on board built by someone who actually surfs!

Our surf experts are on hand to offer advice no matter what your surf level - whether you're looking to learn the basics on your first surfboard, or need to tee up your performance shortboard with the right fins for the job.


Tom - aka The Boss Man
After competing as a grom Tom got stuck into the shaper side of things from an early age, learning the art of foam from legendary shapers like Al Byrne and for brands like DHD.
So if you're looking for some seriously detailed knowledge about shapes and board design he's the guy to chat to.
He opened the Byron Bay C-Skins store in 2008, stocking some of the best wetsuits in Australia, which then went on to sell boards, fins and more.
Since then the shop has been renamed to Boards In The Bay - and now works alongside brands like Album, DHD, Lost, Pyzel, Vissla and more.
When he's not getting you frothing on a freshie he's putting in the time in the shaping bay or scouring the coast for some empty peaks.
Boards of choice = Pyzalien 2, Pyzel Ghost or the Cape Collective Mod Log.


Having spent over a decade on the road chasing waves and blogging over at StokedForTravel.com, Chris has merged his love for waves and tech by bringing his expertise to the digital side of the store.
If he's not out cruising on a log at The Pass or chasing those illusive left hand banks he's probably reviewing the latest board drops on his YouTube Channel or bugging Tom for a new custom design!
Boards of choice = Lost Evil Twin, Pyzel Mini Ghost or Cape Collective Hyperglide
