Family owned and operated since 1978, Island Water Sports staffs its shop with amateur and professional surfers to facilitate a knowledgeable water-riding community. Standup paddle surfing, which originated in Hawaii, involves standing on a surfboard while using a paddle to maneuver across the water. An upright posture provides participants with a higher viewpoint, increasing visibility and decreasing the risk of wrinkly toes. Those who desire to be closer to the waves can opt for a four-hour board rental and use their wave-riding techniques to attempt the elusive hang 15. Use four hours of board bonding time to explore your choice of watery bodies including the open ocean or your local pool.
Island Water Sports
The late founder of Island Water Sports, Kirk Cottrell, first opened shop in a humble 500-square-foot space in Pompano Beach in 1978. His legacy continues to thrive more than 30 years later, as his son Cheyne commands a staff of amateur and professional surfers dedicated to spreading Kirk's passion for wave riding through lessons, board repairs, and sales of gear and accessories. Now situated in more than 7,000 square feet of space, the shop facilitates every aspect of the surfing and skating lifestyle. Group surf clinics and surf camps sharpen budding surfers' longboarding chops, and board repairs rid surfboards of dings.
