Bob Wise started surfing the bracing waters of Ocean Beach in the ‘60s and launched his own surf shop on Wawona Street in ‘68, intending to shape and glass the boards of his buddies. Today, Wise claims the distinction of owning San Francisco's oldest surf shop, though he has since expanded and relocated to the other side of the park. The Cabrillo Street store sprawls across three stories and overlooks Ocean Beach. The well-appointed stock includes surfboards by Surftech, Firewire, Torq, Lost Surfboards and many more. The spot is particularly known for its range of wetsuits from the likes of O'Neill, Rip Curl, Body Glove and Xcel, as well as an impressive array of boots, hoods, gloves and rash guards. The generous size of the store means there's room for extras that you won't find at nearby surf shops, like GoPro waterproof cameras and surfboard travel bags.
