History of the Business

In the Spring of 1998, they opened The Surf Shop in Qualicum Beach. After two and a half years at that location, the economy was struggling and their lease was about to expire, so they decided to close the retail store and continue renting gear to their many loyal customers directly from their own home.

In 2001, they were fortunate enough to buy some acreage in the country, which just happens to be situated beside the only Highway leading over to the West Coast of Vancouver Island. They renovated the existing Barn and were pleased to announce the opening of ISLAND LONGBOARDS in the Spring of 2003.
