Lots of you have been asking where you can go to check out the new apparel line in person and we have great news on that front. We have partnered with Island Water Sports a core surf shop in South Florida and the Apparel line is now available in store at the Deerfield Beach store. IWS is a second-generation surf store and a huge part of the surf and skate community in South Florida, and we are stoked to have them come aboard as our first retail outlet.

To celebrate we have an Indies Trader prize pack consisting of trunks, work shorts, work shirt, fishing shirt and hooded surf shirt up for grabs and any customer who purchases an Indies Trader product from IWS between Jan 24 and Feb 24 and posts a picture to Instagram of themselves with it in the store and tags @indiestrader will go into the draw to win the pack.

As you all know travel is starting to open again and while 2022 availabilities are thin on the ground for Indies Trader lll the 2023 schedule for the Mentawai Islands and the 2023 /2024 schedule for the NDA Islands is now open if you would like to secure a spot head over here for Indies Trader lll or here for Beran Island.


ABOVE: A little something fresh from out on the fringes via Trader lll and yes that's all we're saying.


As you may remember around the end of last year we produced and bottled a very special collection of 50 bottles of Indies Trader White Spirit. We are now able to release this collector’s edition offering in Australia after a pandemic induced round of jumping through hoops that had us wondering if we were the clown or the circus.

Distilled by our friends at Grandad Jacks craft distillery at Burleigh Heads the White Spirit has been aging for nearly two years and by all reports is a masterpiece. Each bottle comes in a special box wrapped in indies Trader tissue and accompanied by a 36-page book that tells the story of our beloved MV Indies Trader … the “Brick”.

Currently the White Spirit is only available to our Australian customers via the online store here, but we have a little something in the works that will have it available for our USA customers soon.
