About Us

35 years, that's a long time! That's 35 years of providing the Ottawa area's board sports community with the best gear from the most innovative brands. That's 35 years of being the first and longest running snowboard shop, skateboard shop, windsport shop (OK, maybe not the first), surf shop, and of course wakeboard, wakesurf, water ski and so much more! From the shop's humble beginnings, Surf Side continuously strives to bring our customers the best possible gear at the best possible price. Not only that, but we also pride ourselves with providing our customers with so much more than a standard retail experience. We like to promote more of a pro shop atmosphere. You get the the information from people who have actually used the equipment, not some part time high school student who's more concerned with their social media accounts rather than selling the right equipment. We'd rather give our customers accurate information upon which they can base a decision to purchase any given product. We leave pushy sales approaches and inaccurate information to the other guys. At Surf Side, you can be sure you're getting the right gear to satisfy your current needs and future progression goals, because we care. We care how much fun your new gear gives you. We care that you get the best possible quality from the brands we carry. We care about you getting better at the activities you partake in. We care about providing the best possible value for the dollars you spend in our shop. We care about keeping relevant and updating the brands we carry to respond to our customer's requests and industry trends. Most importantly though, we care about having fun.
