Since the shop first opened in 1991, the staff at Killer Dana have worked to uphold its original mission of "capturing the stoke of an old-fashioned 'sand on the carpet' California surf shop." Though their surf-tore views may be traditional, their extensive in-store stock offers a distinctly modern spread of equipment and apparel for everything from surfing to wakeboarding to moto sports. Thrill-seekers can suit up in swimwear and wetsuits from tried-and-true brands such as O'Neill, Roxy, Billabong, and Quiksilver.
Robin White, owner of Azalea Salon and Boutique, and her staff style male and female manes with environmentally friendly hair products from Kevin.Murphy and Eufora. Seating clients at stylist stations equipped with vintage dressers and gilded mirrors, staffers manipulate manes with single-process color, highlights, and feather extensions. They also perform Brazilian blowouts and keratin treatments, which let them smooth unruly strands without asking clients to lay atop ironing boards.
The salon’s nail technicians pamper hands with manicures and feet with pedicures or detoxifying ionic treatments, which work to draw out toxins with the help of a warm bath and buzzing ions. Inside treatment rooms, aestheticians armed with SkinCeuticals products revive façades with custom facials and peels and whisk away unwanted hair. Before appointments, clients may sip complimentary beverages, peruse the boutique's selection of eclectic gift items, or sun in the outdoor garden while counting backward from 1,000.

Dedicated to spreading nautical know-how, Aventura Sailing Association has been supplying aspiring seafarers with sailing instruction, boat rentals, and knowledgeable skippers since 1976. Captain Mark Howe helms the association's sailing school, which instills students with safety guidelines and sailing theory in a classroom setting before taking to the waves for hands-on experience with navigation and popular pirate songs. Instead of suffering the expenses of boat ownership, Aventura Sailing Association members are free to rent vessels from the association's stable of well-maintained 30- to 43-foot sailboats, paying only for the time spent atop the waves. Membership ($55 for each additional month) also grants discounted pricing on sailing school, access to various sailing events, and the opportunity to shadow more experienced sailors and glean subtle tricks of the trade.
