A real surf shop. With competent personnel and quality equipment. Stay away from the crappy tourist joints in town with crappy equipment. Any needs, purchase or rental, they will fix, at competitive prices. Service minded pros. Will be back!

Great place to learn about the technical aspects of the surfboards and in this way to choose the correct board that suits you best. Friendly owners with a lot of knowledge and a lot of different boards to choose from beginner to the surf-addict

Was happy to find this place since the personal really helped me a lot in finding the best spot, with transport and everything. They seemed very friendly and professional, and being in the business because their love surfing, not being after the money.
