About Sebastian Inlet Surf & Sport
As the closest surf shop to Florida's most famous surf spot, we try to bring the vibe of a Costa Rican hideaway to the Atlantic shores of Florida. Situated between the ocean and the Indian River Lagoon, we teach comprehensive surf lessons, rent surfboards, SUPs, fat bikes & other gear and have an outdoor training area we feel is completely unique. We stock local brands, support local artists and musicians and are heavily involved in the local community. We work closely with Surfrider Foundation, the Barrier Island Sanctuary, the Friends of Sebastian Inlet State Park volunteer group and the Brevard County high school surf teams. We also have a store within a store in Archive Books and Records, a resource for vinyl, CDs and vintage books. All in all, our goal is to live up to our calling card as "A surf shop like no other."
