Wave Riding Vehicles has been on the beach since 1980, and in that time their wave of porpoises logo has made their surfboards one of the most recognizable on the East Coast. The shop is huge, with equipment for all the board sports: surfing, paddleboarding, bodyboarding, skimboarding, snowboarding and skateboarding. They offer surfboard rentals and a full line of surfboard repairs. In clothing, WRV carries top name brands as well as plenty of unusual and hard-to-find labels. The women’s section in particular is full of boutique choices of clothing and accessories. They also have tons of swimwear for women, men and kids. In addition to this location in Kitty Hawk, they also have stores in Virginia Beach, Haleiwa, Hawaii, and now in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. One thing that's great about this surf shop is the vibe of appreciation for your business.
