Whalebone Surf Shop : There wasn’t a street sign, traffic light or lawn in Nags Head, North Carolina when Jim Vaughn set up shop. But this little town on the Outer Banks had pristine beaches and perfect, peeling  Atlantic wind swell. That was all a young surf-retailing pioneer needed. 

Vaughn and his business partner rented an 800 square-foot house from a Catholic priest who had converted the dive bar next door into the Holy Trinity church. Vaughn carpeted the attic above the shop and called it home. 

In the winter of ’76, Vaughn bought out his business partner and changed the name to Whalebone Junction Surf Shop.

Since then Whalebone Surf Shop has been serving the needs of surfers on the Outer Banks of North Carolina and Virginia Beach, Virginia since 1998.

Hansen’s Surf Shop: Hansen Surfboards was established in 1961 on Oahu’s famous North Shore by Don Hansen. In 1962, Don moved the shop from the small shack on Kawela Bay to a larger building just across the street from Cardiff Reef in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, Ca. It was here that Don’s surfboard shaping business really began to grow. By the mid-1960’s, Hansen Surfboards was shipping surfboards to many parts of the world. Many of Don Hansen’s original shapes are still available today at Hansen’s.

In the early 70’s, Hansen’s transitioned into a retail business and quickly became one of the most popular and well-known surf shops in Southern California. Their single location in Encinitas is now the largest surf shop in San Diego County!

HSS : Located just across the Pier on PCH & Main St. in Huntington Beach, Huntington Surf & Sport is a staple of Huntington Beach. Aaron Pai was 23 years old when he bought Huntington Surf & Sport, “I was out in the water one day, and a guy [Ernie Hernandez] asked me if I wanted to work in a surf shop and I told him yes. The surf shop just so happened to be Huntington Surf & sport, so I was actually the first employee hired at HSS. I sold wax and T-shirt; that’s about all we had back then. That, and a few wetsuits. A couple of months went by, and the owners weren’t getting along so they offered to see the business to me. Long-story-short is I borrowed 60,000 dollars from my parents and purchased the business in 1979 (business.transworld.net)”. It also has one of the best coffee/bagel shops in HB (Java Point) located inside the shop. You can get your bar of wax and a morning coffee all in one stop.
