He will ask you questions to find out where you want to take your surfing instead of just pushing product out the door to make a sale.

    Yeah Jeff is a good guy , I have bought a few boards off him in the past along with other surf needs.

    know what you mean about weaving your way past the bikes and sporting goods to get the the Surf stuff Thats why I only go there if its a last resort

    Agreed on Woody's disagree on OO. If you ride a log, OO is a good shop. Pretty pricey tho and not a great shop for shortboarders. also, if a shop isn't open year round is it really a shop for surfers?

    Absolutely hate Wild Ocean tho!

    Yo Kevin Cook is the man! My first board I found at a garage sale was like 50 bucks it was a 5 10 custom shaped by a guy named Kevin Cook. At the time I had no idea who this guy was but a couple of years ago I was in surf shack looking for a board and turns out the guy helping me out was that guy. He laughed pretty hard when I told him. I brought that old POS board into him, he was soooooo stoked! It was one of his first boards and he was utterly amazed that the thing was still in one peice. Anyway the guy is absolutely all about surfing and lives to help out other surfers find the right board or wetsuit.

    P.S. I think its 30th Street In ship bottom

    Definitely agree with Wild Ocean. As far as OO - I guess they lean more to longboarders but they carry a lot of short boards. He's not open all winter cause the Crest is sort of dead in the winter and the years he tried it - it really wasn't worth it. The Crest is not like OC where theres people in the water all winter long and its kind of in the middle of everything. No matter how you look at it - surf shops are still a business where people need to support their family. If its not profitable to stay open whats the sense. But hey, thats why I use Surfers Supplies and Heritage in the winter months and they are closer to where I surf in the winter.

    Jeff at OO is ver knowledgable and get set you in the right direction . If you know what you want in the winter he will open the shop for you by appointment cause like said the crest is dead in the winter.

    Chris & Kelly at Woody's are great . They have a staff that knows about what they are selling and are very knowledgable aswell and can hook you up with what will suit or needs skate shortboard, longboard they got it covered.

    Wild Ocean I wouldnt piss on that store if it was on fire. They Have the little army and act like they own the beach in Wildwood. If you got in there store they kinda try to make yo look stupid and sell you something even if it dont suit your needs or you skill level.

    Thats the only shop I would never got in to . They dont know how to treat there customers. And if you have a buisness that kinda important I think
