Time to Get Outside and Play!

Summer is here!! It’s time to get out and PLAY! There is no arguing that the Gulf Coast has some of the most beautiful beaches, so why not enjoy them to the fullest. Innerlight Surf Shop has been serving the Gulf Coast for 50 years and one of our favorite things to do is get people geared up for a day at the beach.  Our secret formula for a successful summer is the 5 S’s: Swimsuits, Sunglasses, Sandals, Sunscreen and last, but certainly not least, Surfboards. 


We carry a diverse line of swimwear for kids, teens, and adults.  Brands such as Roxy, Billabong, Rip Curl, Maaji, and more.  Nothing feels quite as good as a new suit so stop by and see what we have to offer.


The beautiful white sand beaches and emerald green waters of the Gulf Coast are best enjoyed behind some quality shades.  We have sunglasses that can fit all budgets from the basic shades that will get you through the day to some high end polarized glasses from brands like Smith, Maui Jim, and Costa Del Mar.


Don’t forget about your feet!  Who wants to be putting on socks and lacing up shoes while at the beach?  We dare to say no one.  Flip flops are easy to slip on and off all day while enjoying the coast.  Innerlight carries plenty of sandals for kids and adults at all price points to meet your needs.  Some of our most popular brands include Reef, Olukai, and Rainbow.


We’re pretty sure you will only make the mistake once of not wearing sunscreen, but we can’t stress enough how important it is to wear.  However, not all sunscreens are created equal.  We would have to say our favorite brand is SunBum.  SumBum not only offers different types and strengths of sunscreens for all skin types and beach activities, but they are also environmentally friendly.  Their sunscreens are vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free, sulfate free, paraben free and reef friendly.  Oh, and did we mention their sunscreens smell amazing? Stop by and grab some and you will see why they are a favorite.


While summertime doesn’t bring the biggest waves on the Gulf Coast, it does bring warm waters and perfect waves for learning.  We’ve been serving and surfing the Gulf Coast for 50 years and love sharing the passion of surfing with everyone. Whether you are a beginner or seasoned surfer, we have something for you.  From soft tops that are great for kids to custom shaped boards to really dial in the perfect shape for you. Check out some of the boards we have to offer and let us help set you up with the perfect board for the Gulf Coast.  Also, we know surfing isn’t for everyone, so don’t worry we have skimboards, bodyboards, skateboards, and paddleboards as well.

So there you have it, our not so secret recipe for a successful summer.  Don’t let this summer pass you by without getting out and enjoying our beautiful beaches.  Because everyone knows the best medicine is a little Vitamin Sea!
