Surf Shops In Broadbeach

Don’t walk into these shops and expect to find a huge range of local and international shaped boards, you may get a leg rope and wax but the range is more suited to the tourist looking for convenience. You could wander a little further south to the Pacific Fair Shopping Centre where you will find Billabong, Surf DiveN Ski, Quiksilver, Roxy, City Beach and some other surf clothing shops but these surf shops only have display boards and fashion.
