Surf shop: the ultimate surfing store has everything a surfer needs | Photo: Quiksilver

Are you buying a new surfboard? Have you run out of wax? Do you need a ding repair? Do you want to try a new wetsuit? Discover the most comprehensive list of surf shops.

Where's the nearest surf shop? How can you find a surf shop when on vacation? Surf stores are surfers' last refuge.

It is where we can dream, touch, learn something new about innovative gear solutions, and explore the latest apparel trends.

According to historians, the "surf shop" concept was born in the early 1950s in California, when surfboard shapers felt they needed a proper store to sell their craft.

Today, a great surf shop offers a broad range of products, including surfboards, wetsuits, leashes, wax, traction pads, board bags, clothing, accessories, boardshorts, and cool t-shirts.

More recently, surf shops have also become service providers so that you can get access to surf rentals, stand-up paddleboard (SUP) tours, surfing lessons, surf yoga classes, and even photo and film productions.

Surf shop owners and employees should advise you on the best gear for specific needs and present you with alternatives for your initial preferences.

There are thousands of surf shops worldwide.

Most surf stores and outlets are located in coastal cities, towns, and villages, but with the advent of artificial surf pools, they're popping up even in landlocked regions.

Please help us build and keep the list of surf shops up-to-date by letting us know which ones we missed and those who closed their doors.

The most successful competitive surfer of all time, Kelly Slater, rode what may have been the last heat of his 24-year professional career.

We can't choose our height, and 80 percent of it is genetic. But if you're into surfing, taller and shorter surfers feel noticeable differences in getting acquainted with boards, paddling for, and riding a wave.

Big wave surfing is an industry with an industry.

Ryan Crosby is the new chief executive officer (CEO) of the World Surf League (WSL).
