Ron Jon Surf Shop!
I've been going to Ron Jon Surf Shop in Cocoa Beach as long as I can remember. The original store was founded in 1959 in New Jersey by Ron DiMenna. From their website, "His pastime soon became a passion and homemade surfboards would no longer do. When his father heard that he wanted his own custom surfboard from California, he suggested, "Buy three, sell two at a profit, then yours will be free." Dad was right, and RJSS was born."
The store in Cocoa Beach opened in 1961, and now covers more than 2 acres. It's open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.
There are additional stores in Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Key West, Fort Myers and Panama City Beach, Fl., Myrtle Beach, S.C., Tampa and Miami (Fl.), JFK International airports, Cozumel, Mexico, Grank Turk, Turks & Caicos and Las Vegas, Nevada.
In Cocoa Beach there is also a Surf Grill restaurant, Cape Caribe Resort and a Surfer School.
There is a massive selection of t-shirts. Actually, there is a massive selection of anything to do with the beach!
A nice staircase to the 2nd story.
And, a nice waterfall under the stairs.
And, you can also take the elevator.
Or relax on a bench outside.
And of course, the parking is always free! After a hot day at the beach it's always a great place to stop by even if it's just to window shop!
