My one-week full camp (surfing and adventure) was an incredible experience. I was initially leery about the idea of a surf camp – I had never surfed before, and not being a sedentary-style traveler, I was nervous about such a singularly focused getaway. I could...More

This is not really a surf Shop Sr, we do have rash guards at a $35 value but only from out company, we don't sell corporate brands. I would suggest WOW surf as the main and oldest surf shop in town!
