Great locally owned surf shop that is actually a surf shop. Not big and full of Chinese items marked up for tourist. This is the REAL thing and most locals shop here vs the other "surf shops" on the island.

The new renovation is amazing! SSSS has to be one of the best looking shops on the east coast. Everything is custom and hand built! They've also matched that same quality with their product. Highly recommend!

Great clothing, shoes & sunglasses selections with a knowledgeable staff. Recent upgrades to the shop and it looks so fresh! Love keeping an eye on their social media accounts for sales and new merchandise. The best place in EI for locals and tourists to shop!
