Surf 'N Sea
A North Shore water-sports store with everything under one roof. Purchase rash guards, bathing suits, T-shirts, footwear, hats, and shorts. Rent kayaks, snorkeling or scuba gear, spears for free diving, windsurfing equipment, surfboards, and bodyboards. Experienced surfing instructors will take beginners to the small breaks on the notoriously huge (winter) or flat (summer) North Shore beaches. Warning to fishing enthusiasts: a fishing pole is the one ocean apparatus they don't carry. www.surfnsea.com.
