in hatteras, its gotta be hatteras island boardsports. the guys there know what they're talking about and know how to keep me coming back for more. and the new shop they're about to open is gonna kill it.
freedom surf in va beach is a no brainer. they've got a rad style, great customer service, and stick to their roots.
finally, in ocean city, its malibu's. lee knows everything about all the merch he sells. and every kid that works there surfs religiously. and each surfboard in there is sick in its own right.
i'm obviously a "mom and pop" surf shop kinda guy and all of these shops are great examples of this.
