Village Surf Shoppe, 500 Atlantic Ave. Garden City, SC 29576
Village Surf Shoppe began in 1969 by Eric Eason. Eric would rent surfboards to tourists beneath the Garden City Pier which gave Eric the idea of opening his own surf shop, and with just a few shirts, some wax and a few boards, Village Surf Shoppe was born. This was one of the first surf shops along The Grand Strand and it has been at the same location since 1969. Kelly Richards bought the shop from Eric in 1988. Kelly had previously repaired and built Perfection Surfboards for the shop, Kelly was also on the Villlage Surf Shoppe Surf Team.
Village Surf Shoppe has been a very important part of Myrtle Beach Surfing and has 4 USA Team members riding for them. Village has all the major lines and is always hunting new fresh brands. We concentrate on customer service and making sure you get what you need to enjoy surfing. Village has been a big part of the history of East Coast surfing and will be a big part of the future.
