Rhode Island Surf Co. – So Rhode Island

Posted

What it is:

A family-run store taking cues from surf culture and coastal Rhode Island. Find premium surfboards and surf accessories, wetsuits, fins, apparel for the whole family, coastal home goods, surf-inspired art, and beach essentials.

 

Where to find it:

This surfing hub lives inside the historic Brown Building in downtown Westerly, across the street from the Westerly Post Office. Curbside pick-up and shipping options are available, too.

 

What makes it a Rhody Gem?

Take a step inside and immediately absorb the iconic surf vibes in a sensory experience – smell the fruity surf wax (through your mask, of course) and take in the groovy music while you set out for your coastal recreation essentials. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, a passionate team member can help match you up with a hand-crafted board or recommend any number of other curated apparel or art. Rhode Island Surf Co. works with surfboard shapers from around the country to provide custom boards and hosts community events to showcase local craftspeople, too. Owner Walle Hutton says, “We are constantly collaborating with artists to promote community and spread the passion of surf culture to everyone.” During these times of social distancing, let their friendly staff find your size and specifications for you while you take in the shop’s scenery for a personalized and immersive experience.
