Owner description: Founded for Surf Lessons, Bicycle Rentals-Repairs and Surfboard production; 2006 in Cocoa Beach, Florida, 3aRides Surf, Skate and Bike now employs its own team of surf instructors, bike & skate smiths-including master surfboard craftsmen named Bagel and Jeff Haney-who lovingly shape its signature paddleboards, longboards, and surfboards. Managing Member Craig Hiller says one of his favorite parts of the job is watching people succeed at their first Surfing Lesson who never dreamed they could do it, like the 67-year-old grandmother who amazed everyone when she soundly trounced her grandchildren in a surfing challenge around Thanksgiving of 2010. 3aRides Surf, Skate & Bike is located in downtown Cocoa Beach, 1/4 mile from beaches, surfing, showers and refreshments. The 3aRides shop is (within 1/2 mile) nearby the Cocoa Beach Skateboard Park and Cocoa Beach Golf Course. The 3aRides Surf, Skate & Bike shop features branded and locally hand shaped epoxy composite, carbon fiber, polyurethane fiberglass in high performance surfboards, classic nose rider surfboards single, twin, tri, quad and five fin setups that are handcrafted at our factory located in Cocoa Beach, Florida.

My 9 year old daughter is a huge fan of Bethany Hamilton. Being from the mountains, has made her dream of surfing a bit challenging. We were looking for an opportunity to let her try surfing and learn what is involved. We found 3A on the Internet. Randy from 3A was a patient and kind instructor. He made her feel... More

Hi, this is Mark, from Byron Bay, Australia. We lived in Cocoa Beach for a few months, so I bought a second hand 5'11" for here, kinda wide but good for Brevard County waves. We had to leave (work) on very short notice so no time to advertise on Craigslist or anything. 3A bought the board for cash on a... More

Upon arrival on a beautiful day, was a nice establishment, the owners were very friendly, you can tell, they care about their customers. Matt (Surf instructor) greeted us, and we got right to the surfing lesson. Matt was friendly, with lots of experience on surfing, if you like real people he is it. I have been surfing for two years... More

August 2014. Great price in town for rental and surfing lesson. We had Mr. Randy teaching us, 11yrs old boy and myself over 50 yrs old. He was fantastic! We highly recommend 3A Rides to anyone visiting Cocoa Beach area. (We stayed Satellite Beach area where 15 min south of Cocoa Beach). We rent a surfboard after our first lesson,... More

This shop went out of the way to find a road bike for me to rent when there weren't any available. I had talked with owner Craig Hiller a few weeks previously about wanting to rent a decent road bike on my family vacation in Cocoa Beach, and he assured me that one would be ready when I arrived. However,... More

My family and I recently vacationed in Cocoa Beach for a long weekend and visited several surf shops looking for a surfboard for our son. We saw their webpage and decided to visit, best decision we could have made. They had a large selection to choose from and the staff took their time to make sure it was a good... More

Australian family visited for a few days. Rented wetsuits (brand new off the rack) and a great short board. Got the advice on when and where to surf - this resulted in great time in the water. No comparison to bigger businesses in the area, when you go and deal with real people, great things happen. Thanks Bilt.

Terrible Service and product not as specified. After waiting 6 days instead of the fast 2 days turnaround promised, I received call from shop that 50mm tires did not fit the bike and that they put on 38mm instead. Idea was to be able to ride on the beach. When I told the owner that I was not satisfied by... More

I travelled a small distance from Melbourne beach to Cocoa beach after being disappointed by surfboard rental options in the local shops, and could not have been happier with the outcome. As mentioned in other reviews, Craig was extremely friendly and helpful and went out of his way to get me the exact surfboards I was looking to rent for... More
