Concierge.com's insider take:
The East End's go-to surf shop isn't quaint or retro—quite simply, it's got the goods. That means polarized sunglasses by Oakley and Maui Jim, racks of wet suits and sporty swim trunks, and Freestyle and Rip Curl watches. Air and Speed may be the first choice of pros like Kelly Slater when they're in the area, but the shop caters to all ability levels and even to non-surfers. (Some customers just swing by for a gander and some sunblock.) Buying a board will set you back from $550 to $1,200; rentals are also available of soft-top longboards, epoxy short boards, and stand-up paddleboards—as well as Electra beach cruisers, in case you feel like riding something that's not a wave.—Darrell Hartman
