The Shark Moves Off The Roof

If you have driven by the store lately, you may have noticed that the shark has come down from the roof. She has been a landmark on the beach and has been stuck in our roof since 1986. She held up to Andrew’s 160+ mph hour winds in 1992, then hurricane Wilma, and even did not budge during the whirlwind of storm activity inf 2017. Through hurricanes and 30+ year’s this shark has been a faithful icon.Our beloved shark is heading out for a touch up and will be back on the roof in approximately one month. Stay tuned for her unveiling party!



A Remodel for Our 40th Year

As we head into our 40th year, we are excited to announce that Island Water Sports will be getting a fresh new look. Last year we completed a huge interior remodel that includes a surfboard museum, higher ceilings, and new interior displays. This year look for even more changes.

Redesigned interior of Island Water Sports completed in 2017


We brought new life to the store, highlighting our brands like QuikSilver, Roxy and Hurley.


What is happening?

This year, thanks to a partial grant from Deerfield Beach Community Redevelopment Agency’s Commercial Facade Program, we will be working on the exterior of Island Water Sports. This week, construction went into full swing. We are excited to share our progress along the way with our customers.
