Excellent family surf lesson with Will & Leland. Took great care of all of us. We had a great time learning with them and highly recommend Mangrove Surf Shop!
Amazing trading platform, quick withdrawal I have been using this platform together with the most recommended forex and Cryptocurrency strategy on the internet from Mr. Ethan Payne and so far I have no complaints about making $7000-$15000 every week he is great and I am thankful I was lucky enough to have met him.

We had a great experience at Mangrove Surf Shop. Sean was so friendly and helpful. This was our first time to the Atlanta Ocean and our boys wanted to learn to surf. Sean set up a lesson with Tom for the next day. Tom was great and had them standing up and riding waves on their own by the end of the lesson. Later we came back to rent two surfboards. Our boys loved surfing and can’t wait to do it again next year.

Our entire family had a surf lesson today including 5 kids. The instructors did an awesome job helping us all learn and especially with the kids. The shop itself is very nice and had a nice selection of clothing and surf necessities. I highly recommend we will be back for sure.

Hired Mangrove to give my 6 yr old grandaughter surfing lessons. Instructor Liz showed up at our house on time fully prepared and did an amazing job with Skylar. Patient and understanding and had her surfing in from 40 yards out. Very satisfied and highly recommend.

What a great one stop shop for all things surfing and even some extras, no electric bikes though, just analogue LOL. I have bought fins, a couple boards and clothes from here where the staff was extremely helpful, accommodating and knowledgeable. Be sure to support this local family owned shop, a true community asset with events and offerings to promote staying local.

My daughter loved her lesson with Brandon. She has had lessons on various beach vacations but she felt this was the most informative. Mangrove is our spot when we come to St. Augustine. Thanks guys!

I was in need of a hat and what I found was memories.We were staying across the way for a week, and I wanted a new hat for the beach. This is a small family owned business, and they were so helpful. Ended up finding an amazing swimsuit where all the other shops had wash away bikinis, and a hat. Later we came back to rent two surfboards for our kids, and this is when the memory making began. Our youngest, 9 y/o daughter was standing up the first day, the second day she was paddling out with her dad , spotting “swells” and riding solo. She named her board “Alice” and she cried when we had to return it, but she said some other little girl would get to ride Alice and that made her smile.We will be back next year to visit Alice and The Mangrove.

The place for all surf essentials. A true local shop focused on community and making sure you get what is right for you. Clean, well organized with such helpful staff. The owner Chris is incredibly down to earth and makes you feel so welcome. Cade is super knowledgeable and helpful. Don’t bother with any other surf shop, you found the one.

My family and I came to St Augustine for a family vacation. I wanted to rent a board from a local shop and I’m so glad I found Mangrove. The atmosphere is amazing, the selection was great, and Sean went above and beyond, getting me set up with the perfect board and gave great advice about surfing in Florida. I’ve rented from a lot of shops, and this place is the best I’ve ever worked with. I’ll be returning!

Ive purchased from aqua creep and a few others in the area. Difference is honestly the customer service. The crew at mangrove makes you feel at home, there's nothing worse than going in with a few questions only to have kind of a condescending tone and Mangrove is the furthest thing from that. you walked out knowing more than what you assumed you would and they're just friendly. Also they're more of a core shop so they're going to have none of that high production volume garbage. Shawn is my dude!!

What an amazing experience. 5 of us took a surf lesson during a family trip over Spring Break. Chris answered all the questions with numerous texts before the lesson. The whole staff bent over backwards to accommodate us from the moment we arrived. Jack and Josh did such a great job as instructors. They worked their butts off making sure we had fun in less than ideal surf conditions. I would totally recommend this place. My niece who lives in FL is already trying to talk her mom into her next trip.

This place is the coolest surf shop I've been to in a long time. As a lifelong surfer it's very hard to find a shop that is local and true to the soul of surfing. This place has the complete package locally owned by surfers for surfers. Truly a joyful place to get anything. I wish I had a shop like this near me I will definitely be coming back to mangrove you guys are the pure essence of surfing and the spirit of aloha. They are friendly and knowledgeable about the life. Great job guys, you owe it to yourself to stop by and check them out. I got a great deal on a used longboard fin, can't wait till the water warms up a little in VA beach to give it a go.

Wow, these peeps are fantastic; Mangrove has a positive vibe that radiates local love, from the art in the shop to the surf instructors. The surf shop offers rentals, lessons, and overall good vibes. Chris, the owner, has made Mangrove a sweet community that welcomes all. Sean, the manager, was great to work with and super flexible, and Brandon was a true local surfer and excellent instructor. He was patient and supportive, and it was easily the best surf lesson I have had. If you are a tourist, be cool but visit. Stop in for a sick t-shirt, baby onesie, or greeting card if you're a local. Thanks a bunch to Mangrove for making my vacation so relaxing and fun!

What a cool surf shop. Chris, the owner, is a local and a native and he knows his stuff. The staff is friendly and helpful. I arranged a surf lesson through their insta page for my daughter's 16th birthday and it was a huge success. Reasonably priced lesson that included board and wetsuit. The shop is filled with all the surf requirements as well as trendy beachware, local art and more. This is the place to go for a local experience, not a tourist one.

The owner Chris has put together a great surf shop experience! My first visit was eight months ago when I was staying in area - loved the experience and was excited to bring in the rest of the family a few days ago. Chris not only remembered me, but brought up relevant details of my last visit - very impressive!!

He knows the industry, knows how to find great products, knows how to add value, and knows how to value customers!

Always great experiences with this shop. Adorable, functional, and original gear and apparel to shop. Plus I love the board I bought from them so much! When I later broke my first leash, they expertly and quickly helped repair it for an amazing price.I love supporting small family run businesses and this place is a keeper, St Augustine!

Great surf shop! I rented a surfboard for 3 days and had a blast with it! Everyone I interacted with while picking up the board and dropping it off was kind and ready to answer questions. Also bought a couple of shirts and a sticker! Definitely worth it to go out of your way to support this small business!

Such a positive experience! My girlfriend was not very happy about my idea to take lessons. After an hour with Morgan we rushed back to Mangrove to buy her a board. She was STOKED! Got right up and rode to the beach several times. I talked her out of a board this time. We will be back for another lesson. Very laid back. (I can’t believe I just wrote that).

14/10 would definitely recommend Mangrove Surf Shop and surf lessons! The shop has an awesome vibe and some really cool products. Chris, the owner, is kind and welcoming and feels like an old friend. I appreciated him squeezing me in for a surf lesson on short notice. I had my surf lesson with Justin and it was awesome! I was able to ride some great waves and it was a lot of fun.

From the moment I stepped foot into the surf shop I was instantly welcomed and felt part of the Mangrove family. By far the best surf shop in the St. Augustine area! Tons of sweet boards to choose from and finally boards that are affordable compared to other shops.

Awesome family owned surf shop. Shopped around St Augustine and Jacksonville Beach looking for a good fish for a good price. After speaking with Dustin, I knew I was in the right place. Highly recommend Dominion Fish if you are wanting a quality fish that isn’t overpriced. Dustin was great to work with. Very knowledgeable and took the time to help me find the right set up for my board. An added benefit is that a lot of the products he sells are made locally in the area. Support local!

We had our 2 boys do private 90 minute lesson as they had never surfed before. Dustin did an amazing job he even had our daughter on a board surfing and she is only 5. I highly recommend him he explained everything clearly and so that the kids would understand and they had a blast.

Such a great little surf shop. I been to a number in the area but this one is just special. Great for beginners and those looking for a local shop with local products. Went today to have my board fixed and talked with owner Dustin who is really knowledgeable, friendly and passionate about his shop. Highly recommend for those looking to start surfing, these guys are really helpful. My daughter's board was fixed a few months back and it was done so well you would have never known it was damaged. Will be coming back for my next board very soon.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience taking a surf lesson from Dustin. He was very accommodating making sure that our lesson time was when the waves would be optimal and the weather perfect. He was able to help us both, having different levels of ability and we learned a lot and had a great time. Highly recommend mangrove surf shop for surfing lessons and equipment!
