About Us

LSS is one of the oldest retail businesses in Launceston.  It has only undergone a few name changes and owner changes in its 40+ years of operation.  LSS has always been owned and operated by local Launceston families and proudly employs a team of 15 local staff of all ages.

LSS is one of Australia’s largest single door independent surf stores.  It offers to Launceston one of the largest ranges of surf clothing in a single location in regional Australia.

In 2013 we are very proud to sponsor:

Tom Kelly Sponsorship

We are very excited to be offering support to local junior surfer Tom Kelly. Tom is a 17 year old from the East Coast of Tassie and the current state junior longboard champion. He also performed well in shortboard comps and this year came second in the schools competition after surfing 4 heats straight in horrendous conditions. It's great to have Tom as part of the Sport & Surf team.

Currently there are no job vacancies. Please check back again soon.
