Try It Before You Buy It

Make sure you love that board before you plunk down your cash! We’re happy to let you try out a surfboard or paddle board before you buy it. Stuart Beach is across the street from the shop to test out a surfboard. Causeway Beach is down the road to get a feel for a paddle board. Just call us to set up a test ride. We want you to be happy with your choice!

Surf Apparel + Accessories

Beach Apparel and Surf Wear at Island TraderAll surf shops carry apparel. But not like the Apparel + Accessories from Island Trader.

That’s because we buy manufacturer’s samples and end-of-season closeouts direct from surf industry sources. Only the good stuff, iconic brands. Beach T-shirts, hoodies, hats, zips, shoes, bags, sun glasses and more for men, women, boys and girls.

We source five-star-quality goods at eye-popping low cost. Then we mark it up just a buck or two so you’re blown away by our price.

The apparel and gear at Island Trader is so good that it’s like shopping at one of those shiny mall surf shops. Except all the price tags would be wrong…

Island Trader’s Vintage Surf Board Museum

Want to see some very cool boards from the 1950s, 60s, 70s and 80s? Then come check out the Island Trader Vintage Surf Board Museum! It’s free to look around and we’d be happy to tell you all about the stories of these early boards. Some are for sale, too!
