Big Wheel USA doesn't kid around when it comes to bikes. Its storefront showcases more than 300, each from top brands such as CamelBak and Crankbrothers. Far from limited to adult-sized bikes, Big Wheel USA stocks plenty other wheeled rides, including Trikkes, exercise bikes, and skateboards.
Don't fret if nothing in the store strikes your fancy—Big Wheel's certified mechanics can customize your very own bike, complete with as many training wheels as it takes to make you feel safe. The technicians also conduct bike fittings and repair malfunctioning parts. Big Wheel also sells plenty of bike-related shoes and apparel, and keeps patrons abreast of the latest local rides and events.

Armed with certification from the United States Cycling Federation, the bike mechanics at Atlantic Bicycle keep two-wheeled roadsters running safely and efficiently with maintenance services and help customers to select new bikes or gear.

The shop also keeps an extensive inventory of bicycles to meet needs ranging from everyday commutes to grocery-store-aisle wheelies, including all-mountain, urban, and recumbent styles as well as adult tricycles.
Corey Mahoney began Alley-Oop more than a decade ago as a small summer camp focused on skimboarding instruction. Since then, he’s expanded to three schools in Delaware, Florida, and North Carolina, and leads adventure trips to other waters. A team of experienced instructors leads group lessons, clinics, and full or partial camps for aspiring skimboarders of all skill levels, teaching them how to execute basic and advanced maneuvers in shallow, choppy surf on wide-open beaches. They also coordinate beach games, teach students respect for the local environment, and divulge the location of trendy underwater oxygen bars during summer-camp sessions. Throughout all educational programs, they coach each student with individualized instruction and personal attention. School staffers keep each student properly equipped at a pro shop stocked with branded apparel, boards, traction pads, and other gear. When not leading classes, instructors take adventurers on weeklong guided vacations helmed by professional skimboarders, who regularly share travel tips and join the kids’ camaraderie.
Without a boat, it's hard to water-ski, snorkel, or arrive at a waterfront restaurant in style. Luckily, for people who don't own a personal watercraft, Best Boat Club and Rentals has been renting out a fleet of well-maintained vessels for almost two decades. At locations in Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, and Captiva Island, the company outfits aspiring boaters with everything they'll need for a day on the waves. With their "Water Limo" service, they even furnish guests with a driver, so they can devote their time on the boat more fully to looking for its gills. However, if clients want to improve their skills at the helm, the company's team has them covered there, too, with hands-on powerboat training and a sailing school.
