Quiksilver continues its strategy of opening its latest generation of stores in the most iconic boardsport locations worldwide. Following on from France, Portugal, Spain, Russia and Australia, Quiksilver has opened its latest Boardriders store in Bali, Indonesia, making it the 15th Boardriders in the world.
The ultimate location for surfers, the new Bali store is located right on Echo Beach (Canggu), a stretch of coastline famed for its left hand “Sandbar” beach break and one of the most consistent high performance right hand waves in Bali that is affectionately known as “The Right”.
On a 500m2 site, Quiksilver has used its strong architectural style of combining urban elements of concrete, brick and metal with organic coastal finishing’s of wood and glass. To bring these elements together Quiksilver have planted many tropical palms and trees at the entrance of the store that works in with the live wall of plants that welcome customers as they enter the store.
Natural wood embellishes the Quiksilver collection whilst a white salt-washed coastal wood is used for the Roxy areas that enhance the Pop Surf and Fitness collections. The DC collection is presented in its urban street setting presenting a range of skate inspired apparel, sneakers and skateboard hardware.
Accessible through three separate entrances, the Echo Beach Boardriders was designed around a surfboard carousel carrying up to 50 boards that travels around the perimeter of the store before rising to the hardware mezzanine so that customers can take boards from the carousel for a closer inspection. On the shop floor are another 100 boards from some of the world’s best shapers and manufacturers including Mark Richards, Channel Islands, Chilli, Christian Bradley, Brett Warner, Hayden Shapes and more.
In recognition of Quiksilver’s art inspired heritage, original Quiksilver artists Peter Webb and Clayton Barr added a large mural to the store as well as scripting the story of some of Quiksilver’s most iconic art “Ghetto Dog” and “Warpaint” on the store walls.
As well as being a retail store the Boardriders also includes The Quiksilver Café -Echo Beach which offers a fresh menu of surfers big breakfast, premium coffee, muesli and smoothies for the early birds, and sandwiches, snacks, fresh pure fruit juices, cold beer for lunch and dinner.
The Boardriders is a great place to:
