Backdoor Surf

Backdoor Surf

Backdoor is named after Backdoor Pipe, a famous surf break on Hawaii's North Shore, and first opened shop on Victoria Street, Hamilton in 1988. Since then, Backdoor has grown to 15 stores throughout the North Island.

As New Zealand’s largest authentic surf, skate and streetwear store, Backdoor is committed to finding you the best clothing from our home-grown heroes; ilabb, RPM and Federation, alongside our international favourites Billabong, Volcom, Ripcurl, Rusty, Hurley, Nike SB and more.

Stocking hundreds of new surfboards from JS Industries, Channel Islands, Firewire, DHD and others, our hardware programme is one of the best in the country. Looking for a wetsuit? Whether it’s the best value for money, or the highest performance suit we have you and your family covered all year round.

We also have a growing selection of decks, completes, and hardware and our skate programme is managed by guys who know what they’re doing, so you can pop in for the best deals and expert advice.
