Windsurfdeal's true showroom isn't inside its Palos Verdes location. It's on the water. The Pacific Ocean waits only a few miles from the shop's boards, begging guests to take the gear for trial spins on the waves. Equipment from the likes of AHD and KA skims the water and jumps through the air, each with its own distinctive qualities. To feel the difference between a Nah Skwell Fit and a Kool, guests can swap out their boards as many times as they'd like during a rental period. Or they can slow down with a leisurely standup-paddleboard ride, working their cores and learning the basics from an instructor. And unlike a lazy cartographer, Windsurfdeal's team doesn't forget about the East Coast—they ship gear to airports throughout the United States, in most cases delivering items in just one day.
