About Us

We’ve been providing high-quality surf equipment, accessories, and clothing to the Sonoma Coast since 1986 and have been consistently voted Sonoma County’s Best Surf Shop for over 15 years!

Owners Ben and Sarah Dougherty strive to maintain a laid-back, relaxed feel at the original Bodega location as well as at the new location in Valley Ford, located in the beautiful and historic “Dairyman’s Bank” building.

Come by our shop on the way out to the coast today and let us help you fulfill your surfing needs. Or better yet, just stop in for the experience! Also, check out our popular line of clothing, surf gear, and accessories now available in our new, online store.
