This is a place that I went to when I was in high school. I remember walking in and seeing the “clairemont” logo. That’s the sign that said “clairemont surf shop”. I thought that this was a place where I could go to have my own custom surfboard, but it turned out to be more of a surf shop. They had the usual high-end board and accessories, plus they had a bunch of different boards.
Now that I’m an adult and I’ve had experience with a similar custom board shop, I can tell you that I’ve never had the experience with a “normal” surf shop. They’re not like a place where you go check out their boards. I’ve had that experience with my own house.
The best part about Clairemont surf shop is that theyre a small business and theyre open every day. Also its very casual and not stuffy. Theyre not like a place that you go to get your board custom made.
Clairemont surf shop is a family business, but it’s not just a family business. It’s a small business that really cares about the customer and the customer is the center of the entire place. So you feel like youre part of a family and youre part of the community. There is a lot of attention to detail and quality of workmanship.
