1962 to 2022! 60 years in business serving the Pacific Beach and San Diego surf scene! 

30 years of ownership under me, Randy Strunk! We are proud to be an institution and fixture here at the beach. We will be celebrating the month of October with specials and a new 60 year t-shirt designed by Butch Cornelius, the artist who designed the original logo when he was a 10th grader at Mission Bay High!


If you're visiting our website for the 1st time - know we are San Diego’s original surf school and oldest surf shop. Our roots run deep and our staff is a full stoked and knowledgeable  group of surf instructors! Our surf lesson experience is unparalleled from our location to better equipment and the best curriculum designed to get you up and surfing right away!!! Plus a hot outdoor shower to rinse off after your lesson or surf rental!!!


We have all your surf needs covered from quality foam surfboards and bodyboards to a fine quiver of fiberglass  surfboards for rent from Rusty Surfboards, Hank Warner and more!!! We have a fine retail shop to meet any needs you have for your stay in San Diego. Want to cruise the Boardwalk or ride to La Jolla or Ocean Beach we have you covered with bike and skateboard rentals too!


Hard to believe 30 years have passed, I’m still surf stoked as ever! A big thank you to all the local surfers who have supported our store for decades and to all the families and tourists who have trusted us with your loved one’s for our surf lessons and surf camps! Also we cannot forget the legions of surfer’s who have worked here past and present that have shared their talents and aloha to help keep our little shop so popular!!!
