Ron Jon Surf Shop Locations for Surfers in Florida
With multiple locations , Ron Jon Surf Shop is a Florida institution.
When it comes to surfing in Florida, one name is synonymous with the look and attitude of all things "surf" in the Sunshine State. Since 1959, Ron Jon Surf Shop has been providing the equipment, accessories and attitude that power the surfing community's never-ending quest for waves.
It all began when Ron DiMenna opened the original Ron Jon Surf Shop on the New Jersey shore. Two years later, the "One of a Kind" Ron Jon Surf Shop in Cocoa Beach opened its doors to a burgeoning generation of Florida surfers. In the 30 years since, Ron Jon has opened shops in Orlando, as well as in Key West at Old Town, Fort Myers Gulf Coast Town Center, Panama City Beach at Pier Park, and Pensacola.
Today, Ron Jon Surf Shop in Cocoa Beach covers more than two acres, offering surfers - and surfer wannabees - an endless selection of apparel, equipment and entertainment. Open 24 hours a day and located just steps from A1A, the blue, yellow and orange art deco castle is a center of activity for locals and visitors alike.
In addition to the endless columns of fiberglass beauties for sale, the Cocoa Beach shop rents and sells every imaginable beach toy or product, from body boards and beach bikes to kayaks and wetsuits. When visitors return from their adventures on the beach and in the waves, they can peruse board shorts, souvenirs and red-hot bikinis, before cooling down next to the indoor waterfall.
To keep folks coming back, Ron Jon boasts an always-surprising calendar of events, highlighted by autograph sessions and demonstrations by top surfers. Bands stop by night and day, filling the store with music. Surf legends such as Pete Pan conduct free clinics in the surf just a stone's throw from the store, offering youngsters a chance to experience the thrill of catching a wave and "retired" longboarders the opportunity to hang ten one more time.
