Early misconceptions about "surfing the net" led to a rash of ill-fated incidents involving confused adults attempting to convert computer monitors into flotation devices. Ride the waves for real with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of apparel, footwear, sunglasses, and more at Aqua Surf Shop's Haight Street location.
Aqua Surf Shop caters to all levels of surf enthusiasts with a wide range of sun-centric apparel and boarding equipment. Its team of local surfing dynamos stocks scores of clothing brands, including Volcom, Hurley, Insight, Element, Obey, Lifetime Collective, and more. Slip into a pair of men's Hurley One & Only board shorts ($44), or Sanuk standard shoes ($50) to garner attention from spectators and amorous sand crabs. Women can flaunt well-tanned skin while wearing Hurley's asymmetrical Tail Feather dress, emblazoned with bold floral prints ($39), or choose from other swimsuit brands such as Ella Moss, Vitamin A, L*space, and Vix. Rainbow sandals ($50) extend durations of surfside walks, and wave-slaying DVDs such as One California Day ($34.99) offer a look at the California surfing experience. Aqua Surf Shop also has a plethora of swimwear, board shorts, and accessories, including watches by NIXON and Freestyle and sunglasses from Von Zipper, Electric, Spy, Smith, and Raen.
Those seeking additional surf-related guidance may enlist the independently operative advice of the Aqua Surf Shop owners Devin Dargell and Aleks Petrovitch. Inside the shop, patrons easily converse amid whimsical tiki carvings, wild beach prints, and the glaring absence of glittery dolphin snow globes.
