Mission Surf outfits sun-seeking seafarers with boards and apparel for expeditions to the beach and Mission Bay, both of which lie within walking distance of the shop. Surfers choose from a stock of short boards and long boards in epoxy and soft top for carving through the waves with four-hour half-day and nine-hour full-day rentals. An included wetsuit keeps bodies safe from the chill of the sea and the lobbed banana-cream pies of beachfront slapstick routines. Alternatively, oarsmen can opt for paddleboard rentals, which allow for relaxing rides across either the open ocean waves or the placid waters of Mission Bay.
Even though it derives its name from its street address, Mission Surf could also be named for its literal mission: to get people out in the water. The water-sports shop does everything it can to encourage its customers to surf and paddleboard, from renting out equipment and wetsuits ideal for enjoying a sunny day or attending underwater business meetings. In addition to its surfing gear, the shop also carries bikes from renowned brands including Kona and Linus.
