Most surf shops nowadays are more fashion boutiques than core surf shops, this is partly due simply to the better mark-ups available on clothing than hardware. Fortunately here in Braunton that is not the case on the whole with most stores being more hardware orientated in particular Surfed Out. Founded in 1999 the team haveContinue reading “Surfed Out”
