I came here when I purchased my first long board skate board. I had bought the board from a friend with out any trucks or wheels. The store manager helped me pick out wheels, trucks, bearings, and bushings. He even gave me a sweet discount as well as put the board together for me free of charge. He was very helpful when it came to choosing which items to get, as he simply told me which would be the best set up for me, especially since I was a beginner at all of this.
He also sells gear for surfing and several different surf brand attire.
Actually from what I hear this is the only Surf Shop on any UC campus, which is pretty cool. Of all places though UCSD deserves to have one since it is one of, if not, the best surfing school in the nation. Muir Surf & Sport is located in Muir College in between the dorms and El Mercado. If you know where the mail boxes are at Muir, then you'll be sure to pass right by the surf shop. They have a great selection of surf boards, skate boards (long and short), accessories such as leashes, rash guards, skate board wheels, stickers, and clothing racks. They also have stuff for rent which is cool if you don't have your own things and don't really plan on buying a board anytime soon. The owners and employees are really helpful and relaxed, sometimes you can catch them skating or surfing out at Blacks so they know where you're coming from. Overall it's a great shop to check out, even just to browse if you have time in between classes.
This place is awesome. They have tons of sweet boards, I've gotten two from Scott myself. The prices are competitive. Scott is awesome, he'll help you out with whatever you need, and give you some good deals. He'll help you fix your board up too if need be. Buy your surf/skate stuff from here, especially if you're from UCSD. Support Scott and make sure the shop stays on campus!
This is a pretty sick surf and board shop. The could fix up your board for real cheap if not for free. The guys that work there are pretty chill and laid back. A couple of my friends have gotten all their boards from there and they are very satisfied with their purchase. It's a cool surf shop as well.
