Globally Recognized. Locally Grown.

Sweetwater Surf Shop was established in 1976, and is still run today, by a family of long-time locals. We’re situated a block from the best surf break in town in downtown Wrightsville Beach, N.C., a town recognized as one of the top ten surf towns in the U.S. by Surfer Magazine.

In addition to one of the largest surfboard and wetsuit selections on the east coast, we offer board rentals, boutique-style après surf threads, and the friendliest expert staff in town. Stop by. Shop around. Get to know us. Then get in the water!
