Stormriders came to life by the need for a contemporary youth apparel store with a slant for boardriding, in whatever form. Our first Stormriders store opened in December 2010 in Port Macquarie’s CBD, stores in Bathurst and Orange followed in 2011, Kempsey in 2012 and Settlement City Shopping Centre (Port Macquarie) in 2013. In the last few years we have also opened stores in Tamworth, Armidale, Forster and Dubbo.
The Stormriders name came from a snowboard shop in Mammoth Mountain, California, that Anthony Wilson (owner) come across in the mid 90’s. Liking the name so much he registered the name in 1996. When the new “lifestyle” retail concept started taking shape the Stormriders name was a hands down winner.
Stormriders is a unique retail experience and look is best described as “vintage industrial” with an eclectic mix of displays and fittings. Signature features include polished concrete floors, exposed ceiling, plywood wall panelling and Hi Bay industrial lighting.
The Stormriders brand and product mix remains fresh and on point by constantly looking to introduce new brands and categories. Our focus on a diverse collection of brands allows us to quickly adjust to changing fashion trends.
Passionate employees who live and breathe the industry, coupled with fresh tunes and quality sound hopefully provides a memorable experience for our friends and customers.
