Surf’s Up for Shopping, All Over Florida

By: Jeanette Scott

ADD TO FAVORITES

Florida’s lifestyle, flavored with picturesque beaches, sugar white sand and clear blue and turquoise waters, is synonymous with coastal living. The shopping in the Sunshine State echoes that – with more than 100 surf shops that are among the state’s top shopping hot spots.

Whether you’re a serious surfer wanting to catch a wave, a beach bum looking to relax with sand between your toes, searching for a memorable souvenir, or just hankering to indulge your fashionable side, surf shops are your one-stop-shopping destination.

They offer a bit of everything –surfboard rentals and lessons, beach must-haves such as sunscreen and towels, the latest trends and styles in men’s and women’s clothing, and accessories from iconic beach brands like Roxy and Quiksilver.

The surf shops in Florida run the gamut from world-famous to locally owned mom-and-pop shops.

Here’s your guide to just some of the top surf shops in the Sunshine State – starting with a look at some of the big brand surf shops, followed by an easy-to-use surf shop directory, organized by region/city.

THE BIG BRANDS

Several surf shops have multiple locations in Florida. Ron Jon’s is perhaps the most well-known, with billboards across the state and a strong association with Florida lifestyle that carries an international following. Eight of their 12 stores are located here – in Cocoa Beach, Sunrise, Orlando, Key West, Fort Myers, Panama City Beach, Clearwater Beach and Cape Canaveral.

Next up is Maui Nix, another Florida must-see with eight locations including three in Daytona Beach, and one each in Fort Lauderdale Beach, Destin, Coconut Grove, Pembroke Pines and Clearwater.

Island Pursuit stocks clothing and gear for every kind of adventure, including fishing, and their three Florida locations include Sanibel Island and two stores in Sarasota.

Finally, Innerlight has all of your surf and beach needs covered with four Florida locations, in Pensacola, Pensacola Beach, Destin and Gulf Shores.
