Island Water Sports is located in Deerfield Beach, on the east coast of South Florida. At Island Water Sports surfing is not just our business, it’s our blood. We are owned and operated by second and third generation surfers and skateboarders. Kirk Cottrell opened the shop in 1978. His son, Cheyne, took his first steps as a child inside the store and now Cheyne oversees the operation with the help of his mom, sisters and close family friends.

While overseeing the shop, Cheyne also maintains a professional surfing career. Many of our other staff members are also top rated amateur and professional surfers, which ensures that we have the most up to date product knowledge and experience! IWS has the most comprehensive selection of products in South Florida, for all varieties of action sports. We have dedicated our lives not just to surfing and skateboarding, but to serving the local and traveling surfer and skateboarder. Our staff are always ready and willing to offer advice on products or just swap stories after a session.


We love our home – especially when there are waves. Check out our site for daily surf reports and access to Surf Cams up the coast. We strive to be your one-stop site for local surf report and surf cameras along the East Coast of Florida.
