The DSS crew doesn’t take itself too serious… forged by mates over many years of riding and building trails together, it’s a combination of the good times and the bad times that got us here. Whether we are frothing hard on shuttle runs, getting drenched in a rain soaked run, getting sunburnt carving out new features, or running scared from brown snakes! we just have a shared appreciation and passion for the trails. From this we saw a chance to bring together our artistic and creative talents and just have fun in the space.

We think our work speaks for itself with combined clients from National and International brands, which includes Street Plant, Warner Bros. Pictures, New Line Cinema, Universal Studios, Scram Skateboards, Arrow Wheels, Little Black Bike, Restless Longboards, NBL (National Basketball League), Adelaide 36ers, Adelaide Lightning and Adelaide Thunderbirds to name a few.

We aim to make comfy, quality riding gear –  but the key is to keep it fun, with killer art and killer designs.  RIDE WITH MATES!

This is the Dead Sailors Society!


We have chosen to run our shop with 2 purchasing options – We do hold some stock and sell what we have at the time, but we also allow our customers to purchase any of our items online through our ‘Back Order’ setup. This is different to most stores, but this allows us to manufacture only what we order. Which means it’s better for the planet, and we won’t end up throwing away unsold items.

There is an approximate 3-4 week period for goods to be handled, this begins from the purchase phase through to manufacture and delivery. We can’t always guarantee that all items will arrive in this time-frame, especially on some international orders and during busy holiday periods, but we will always do our best to meet that time-frame! We’d rather be honest and let you know how it works.


We work, ride and play on the lands of the Peramangk, Kaurna and Ngadjuri people.

We pay our deepest respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
