The Village Surf Shoppe

 


Kelly Richards is the owner of the Village Surf Shoppe which has been in Garden City, in the same building since 1969.

 

 

He moved to Myrtle Beach from Arkansas when he was ten and learned to surf and craft surfboards from the owner at that time, Eric Keason. In 1988, he was able to buy the Shoppe. Perfection Surfboards is his brand name and his boards are in more competition finals than any other. When asked about how the end of Clark Foam would effect him he said to "buy now or wait a year."
   
   
Although Myrtle Beach isn't known for the big waves, we do have more of our locals winning in competitions all over the country. It's a great place to learn. The waves are bigger in the fall because of hurricane season and most consistent in the spring. Summers are gentle and that is when The Village Surf Shoppe offers their Surf Camp. Wed. & Thurs. morning during the summer (9am - 12noon)
   
   
   

The workroom were Kelly builds Perfection Surfboards.

Jed is the surfing instructor for the Surf Camp.
