About Surf Ride
Starting as a seedling in the 1970’s, Surf Ride has grown from the ground up, sprouting first in Oceanside, and branching out to a second location in Solana Beach. With both store fronts rooted along the Pacific Coast Highway, Surf Ride is committed to providing our customers with as many product choices as possible. From the Ocean to the Streets, our vision is to get everyone as stoked on riding the elements as we are. To keep up with the rise of the internet world, our team has developed an online shop, providing product to your doorstep with the click of a button. We hope to see you soon.
Vans creates footwear and apparel for boarders the world over. In 1966, the Van Doren Rubber Company opened up for business in Anaheim, CA. Vans’ simple canvas shoes soon became a staple at the beach and throughout Orange County. In the mid Seventies, the first skateboard-specific shoe, the Era, was born. Within a few years, the Vans Sidestripe came to represent a look that still epitomizes the SoCal surf and skate scene. While you’re just as likely to see a pair of Vans Classics on the streets of Berlin, Rio or Tokyo as you are in Anaheim, you know that 40 years of Southern California soul are behind them.
Vans supports and promotes surfing through a full line of surf footwear and apparel, events such as the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing™ and through sponsorship of many of the world’s top surfers such as Joel Tudor, Timmy Reyes, Karina Petroni and Nathan Fletcher.
