Dave was a great help in matching this very active 63 year young lady with an appropriate size paddle board. He took a... lot of time to make sure the weight and fit was appropriate. He insisted that the board be tried on the water before I purchased it. Dave is an experienced surfer who welcomes “mature” paddlers to this great sport!!!read more
Loving my new board�
David was extremely helpful in my search for a stand up paddle board. Great little shop, great products and prices.
I saw a board for sale. Long story short. I met the most amazing surf buds ever. End of story. The coolest surf shop... and prices that don't belong. I'm from Ft. Lauderdale, and that's the only place for my surfing and style needs. Friends only please!read more

Dave is without a doubt the foremost authority in our area on SUP surfing. By that I mean there are dozens of places... you can buy SUP's here in the greater Stuart area, but few have the surf specific advice and service you'll find here. Dave is a lifelong surfer who, like many of us in middle age, discovered renewed passion and stoke for surfing through stand up paddle surfing. He is eager to share his knowledge and advice so you can enjoy the best experience without the trial and error with equipment that is common when entering a new sport. Even if you just want to get out on the water and could care less about waves Dave is still your best source for advice and guidance. Do yourself a favor and stop in and tell him what you're looking for, you'll find a knowledgeable owner who won't steer you wrong!read more
Unique and fun. Definitely worth stopping by not only to shop but to chat with David!
Great deals on everything store wide !! Chris is very helpful
Dave is an exceptional shop owner. He genuinely wants you to be happy with the product you purchase. I live in New... Jersey and Dave shipped a board to me, without a scratch and in a timely manner. Who does that!? I love the board and appreciate the service above and beyond the norm. Can't wait to visit his shop when I'm down that way.read more

David is awesome, and his shop is awesome. We spent over an hour at his store trying to decide on the right board to purchase. David was so patient and answered all our questions about different long boards. We bought a beautiful board and we couldn’t be happier. We’ll be sending all our friends here!

When looking for a paddleboard, I can highly recommend Dave, the owner at IslandTrader. Dave is an experienced and mature surfer who did a “super” job matching this 63 year “young” lady with an appropriate board and paddle. I had originally been directed to a shop across the parking lot, but did not get a positive feeling from the teenagers managing the shop even though I explained that I am an experienced paddler. Dave was a wealth of information and insisted that I paddle the board before I bought it. For a great experience,go visit Dave at Islandtrader!

It was a great experience purchasing a Stand Up Paddleboard from Dave at Island Trader Surf Shop. We started looking for a SUP at a neighboring surf shop but got a "bad vibes" from the teenagers behind the counter. A short walk across the parking lot and we found Dave. He was a wealth of information and matched these active "60-somethings" up with the perfect board. Thanks Dave!!!

Awesome surf shop! David is an amazing source of information, knowledge, and expertise when or comes to surf boards and surfing. The store is full of great boards and has a very cool surf board museum... on the ceiling. Great prices from someone dedicated to making sure you have the right board for your body size, experience level, and desire. By far the best surf shop in Stuart, Florida...all of Florida...on the planet!

Island Trader has great prices and an excellent selection of quality surf products. His 50% off clothing is amazing and he has the surf knowledge and experience to answer surf questions. I have purchased several sup boards from Island Trader over the years and I was able to try before I bought (This is a huge benefit). His vintage board collection is very cool, it's worth a visit to his shop just to see all the different vintage surfboards.

Families looking for great surf gear at an incredible price should check out Island Trader. My two girls and I all found used 'starter' surfboards. Dave at Island Trader saved me some cash, and we took our new finds right across the street to test 'em out at Stuart beach!
