Countless beach and surf wear
Before your popular boutique shops found their way to Bali, it was solely home to simple surf shops that genuinely caters to beach and surf bods. These shops are not there to compete with each other, but to provide a customer experience that goes beyond shopping. Cafe and surf shop, Drifter in Seminyak does not just sell surf wear and equipment; it also brews coffee made from Sumatra beans in a shop that harkens memories of endless days at the beach. You can also visit Deus Ex Machina, a shop and dine store that has grunge style surf wear, skateboards, and motorcycles.
To be honest, the surf shops in Bali have an aesthetic that can definitely fit your specific style.
Furniture and decors galore
