Slave to the Wave Surf Report and Photos


Fun little waves in St. Lucie County this morning. Winds were on it a bit but we did manage to get a few fun thigh to waist high waves out of it.


iws mark richard's sumer tour

To say we are excited for the Mark Richard’s East Coast tour would be a complete understatement. It’s not every day that surfing icons walk into your shop, but on August 15th we will have 2 of the biggest influencers of our industry with us for the night.

Quiksilver CEO Bob Mcknight and legendary board shaper Mark Richards will be grillin and chilling with us on Monday August 15th at IWS.

Come check out a video of MR, then hear Bob chat with him on then, now and whats ahead. Grab a picture with the legends, hang with local surfboard enthusiasts, eat some grub, drink some craft beer and remind yourself why we love this sport as much as we do.
