Ocean Minded is excited to feature Beach House as our shop of the month this May. Located just a block from the beach in sunny Santa Barbara, California, this is a true destination shop that is highly respected by the local surf community. Since 1986, Beach House has provided the most extensive selection of surfing and beach gear while focusing on quality customer service for both local surfers and traveling tourists alike.
City View. Santa Barbara is Central California’s gem. The city has perfect weather, right swell, excellent waves and a great mix of people. Beach House was originally located in the heart of downtown, Santa Barbara (209 W. Carrillo Street), but in the 80′s, they decided to make their move closer to the beach and have never looked back. As shop owner, Rodger Nance explains, “it’s all about location, location, location.”
From the Street. Located across the street from the beach, Beach House is an 11,000 square-foot, warehouse style building that houses over 100 classic longboards. In addition to new and used long and shortboards, Beach House also has a huge selection of apparel for both men and women from your favorite brands that will not leave you disappointed.
In the Store. Customer service is a top priority at the Beach House and they greet every customer with equal respect. From a shovel and bucket for the kiddos or classic Hawaiian shirts for Dad… to the hottest bikinis for the fashionista or custom shapes for the core surfers, the Beach House has something for everyone.
Be Ocean Minded. Since day one, Beach House has carried Ocean Minded footwear and they truly believe in the importance of being Ocean Minded. Because the ocean drives the surf business, the Beach House believes it is part of their job to educate their customers and make sure they are aware of how important it is to keep our ocean clean.
Live… like it’s your last day
Protect… your family first, then your environment
Respect… your elders if they earn it
The Knitty Gritty.
