First in the water since 1975
The original CCS opened in 1975 in the outskirts of downtown San Luis Obispo, California and it didn't take long for interest in the new business to grow. In 1978, the shop was doing well enough to warrant a change of location, and Central Coast Surfboards expanded and moved into downtown SLO along with a big selection of surf gear and skateboards. The quickly growing business added international surfboard sales, sailboats, windsurfing, snowboards and men's and women's apparel.
In the 80's, Central Coast Surfboards extended its retail knowledge to mail order and began selling product on a worldwide level.
Fast forward four decades and CCS continues to offer premium products and excellent customer service seven days a week in downtown San Luis Obispo.
2017 saw a change in ownership for CCS, with founder Mike Chaney trusting the shop to the hands of Scott Smith, a California native who has called the Central Coast home since 1991.
Scott can be found in the shop daily alongside General manager Corbett Horn, working hand in hand with their knowledgeable staff to provide you with the best surf shop experience you will ever have. Don't be surprised if you see a little sand between their toes, they are surfers after all...
