SanDiego.com Deems Hansen’s the Best One Stop Shop for Surf Apparel in San Diego


As a San Diego native and avid surfer, I have spent my fair share of time in local surf shops. I’ve perused the racks of countless shops for the perfect fitting wetsuit, new favorite board and durable flip flops for a summer in San Diego since I was a kid. It seems every street corner in Southern California is home to a surf shop looking to stand out among the rest, but there is one that always sticks out in my mind and keeps me coming back – Hansen’s.

Located in San Diego’s popular surf community, Encinitas, Hansen’s is heralded as the largest surf shop in San Diego County. Hansen’s combines the board-sport world by focusing on surf culture and surf gear, but also recognizing the inherent connection between surfers, snowboards and skaters. Packed with everything from Channel Islands short boards to skateboards and even snowboards in the winter, Hansen’s Boardroom is a boarders dream while the main shop houses everything from clothing, shoes and accessories to surf inspired home décor.

As a staple in a community known for great surf spots, an abundance of surf culture and countless shops all competing to be the coolest around, Hansen’s still manages to outshine the rest. Located in north county San Diego since 1962, Hansen’s is guaranteed to bring the surf community of San Diego the best and biggest supply of surf gear and apparel in town.
