The Pit Surf Shop takes special care when catering to beginning surfers, helping countless first-timers dial into the board most suited to their age, physical condition, knowledge and experience. With a huge stock of boards ideal for learning to ride (whether you’re looking to rent or ready to buy), numerous experienced surf instructors and a full surf school on site, The Pit staff is ready to help you get started today. Veteran surf travelers and locals alike also turn to The Pit for high performance shapes, gear and accessories that are fine-tuned for local barrels or exotic surf travel destinations. But this surf shop is not just for surfers; it is also home to the shop-within-the-shop SkimCity, a retailer of skim boards, skim clothing, skim accessories and skim DVDs. Skaters love the wide selection of street, park and longboard skateboards. The Pit also offers paddleboarding sales, rentals and lessons. The Pit crew will also keep you looking cool, out of the water or in, by continually filling the shop with the hottest brands of surf culture and beyond plus all of the accessories you seek like Skull Candy earphones and earbuds, sunglasses, hats, wallets, purses and even surf-inspired decor items for your home or cottage. In a final twist that makes this shop like no other, they partner with Booty Treats Ice Cream & Shave Ice to host fantastic Teen Nights downstairs on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays from mid-June through late August.
