Essential Surf & Skate is just that – all about surf & skate sports! We are situated in Helensburgh & Sutherland, NSW, Australia. Essential Surf & Skate was established in 1999. Essential Surf & Skate started out with two partners who had a vision but more importantly the desire to work in a way that supported their addiction – surfing. From that true love of the ocean and beach life and the feeling of freedom of being in nature,Essential Surf & Skate has grown to become the one of the best surf & skate stores on the south coast. Essential Surf & Skate carries all major brands and many alternate labels and is constantly searching the globe for the best of the best. Some of our key staff have been with us for 15 years plus. We have a dedication to employing a team who, like you, love the surf. This ensures you are getting the best first-hand advice available. At Essential Surf & Skate we love to see first-timers catch the buzz for the surf. If we can help you with the best gear or just some advice or directions, then we are happy. Hope to see you in-store or in the water soon!
