Island Water Sports Miami Surf Shop
Founded in 1981, Island Water Sports is Miami’s oldest and most complete surf shop. Our specialty is board sports with the largest selection of surfboards, stand up paddleboards, skateboards, wakeboards, bodyboards, and skimboards in Miami. Also carried in the store are leading apparel brands Quiksilver, Billabong, Volcom, Hurley, O’Neill, Rip Curl, RVCA and Roxy. Our motto is “If we don’t do it, we don’t sell it”.
Beginning in 2013, to celebrate our 30 year anniversary, Island Water Sports Miami has decided to expand all board sport categories. Our paddleboard department is now twice its original size and is capable of carrying over two-dozen more paddleboards. In addition to paddle boards, our paddle board accessories have grown as well. We now carry four different brands of paddles, along with many other SUP accessories. Check out our paddleboarding page for details.
Island’s second category to be expanded is surfboards. Our goal for 2012 is to increase our inventory by 25%. Now Island Water Sports Miami has the largest selection of surfboards in Miami. We also boast the largest selection of Channel Island Surfboards in Miami. Check out our surfboard page for details.
The third category to be expanded is wakeboards. Liquid Force wakeboards is the only brand we carry. For 2012 we decided not to carry more wakeboard brands but to expand our inventory from Liquid Force. Check out our wakeboard page for details.
The last category to be expanded is skateboards. In this section our main goal is to increase our longboard skateboard inventory. We did this by building three new longboard skateboard racks and adding Loaded longboard skateboards to our inventory of Sector 9 and Lost Skateboards. Check out our skateboard page for details.
