Third Coast Surf Shop was founded in 2005 with a simple mission: to spread the joy of the beach and surfing lifestyle in the Great Lakes region.
Owned and operated by Great Lakes surfer Ryan Gerard, the shop offers surfing, skimboarding, sandboarding, and stand-up paddling rentals & lessons, as well as a comprehensive selection of gear for all of these sports. Also find West Coast-inspired clothing, beach toys and accessories, gifts, and the Midwest's largest selection of surfing equipment — everything needed to experience the beach and surfing lifestyle.
Third Coast Surf Shop also specializes in providing unique services such as kids' beach camps which run also summer long, distinctive events throughout the year, and full service kayak and stand-up paddleboard livery rentals on the beautiful Galien River. Experience an hour or an afternoon of paddling in an incredible wilderness preserve on this mellow, winding river.
Third Coast Surf Shop is the place to go for unique experiences in Michigan's stunning Great Southwest.
