This is an awesome surf/skate/beach rental shop tucked away behind Gilligan's in Siesta Key Village. A lot of the clothing in the store is designed by Blake, the owner. He also makes the skate boards and suff boards. They also have quality boogie boards - not the styrofoam ones that snap in half. There are these new long ones that you can actually surf.

My wife rented paddle boards with a friend who had recommended the place and Blake recommended they start out down by turtle beach on the lagoon until they got comfortable. The friend had gone their several times. On her initial visit, they were going to rent paddleboards, but the owner recommended they try another day as conditions were too windy and choppy.

If you're looking to rent bikes, kayak's, paddle boards, scooters, etc. They got em. If you're looking for interesting / unique shirts, board shorts, bathing suits, dresses, etc for yourself or as gifts, they've got that too. One of the more interesting stores on the key. Stop by, you'll be glad you did.

We happened to drop into this hidden little surf shop one day after grabbing coffee at Lelu Coffee shop. It is behind the coffee shop off of their back patio. How cool!! This place has skateboards, surfboards and clothes all made by the owner. Don't miss it, go search it out!

This place has a nice selection of shirts, shorts, and other water related items. Seems to carry lots of sizes and selection was nice.

I was looking for good quality and not the overpriced tourist stuff. They even had a selection of boards to pick from.
