GulfWind is a cool shop and Addison set us up with a good rental board to add some extra fun to our quick fall break trip.

Great service and excellent selection. I got quality body boards for the family here. They worked great on our vacation. Will return here for a surf board in the future.

Excellent customer service with superb selection of equipment! I came into GulfWind looking for my first longboard. Instead of overwhelming me or treating me like a “newbie” they explained everything I needed to know. I left with an awesome new board and lots of wonderful advise. The father-son staff are really nice and treated my family with kindness, respect, and a genuine interest. We will definitely be back for years to come!

Dan (the owner) is the nicest guy you will ever meet. So knowledgeable and ready to help with anything you need! Also, he had the only shortboards in town! Loved Dan and his shop! Will for sure come back and rent from him again! Thanks again, Dan!!!

Had a great experience buying a couple skim boards here. Owners were knowledgeable and super friendly. Highly recommend this shop if you’re looking for skim board or paddle board.

We were from out of town looking for my sons first skim board. Staff (father &son) were super helpful knowledgeable and friendly. Unfortunately the board had some manufacturer issue and was cracking /chipping along the edge after 1 days use and my son was devastated. The staff was incredible and made it right no questions asked. I was so relived as my son had saved / worked hard for this. You don’t find service like this anymore, first class!! I wanted to be sure to review for others to know and no surprise every other review / customer has left 5 stars as well with similar comments about how great their experience was. Definitely recommend these guys!
