Strongwater Surf Shop

Co-owner Kevin Brown—better known around town as KB—is fond of proclaiming Strongwater the “first surf shop in the mountains in the world.” It’s a catchy way to sum up Strongwater’s pioneering spirit. Since 2008, the shop has given locals a crash course in all kinds of river-bound pursuits: whitewater kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding and river surfing. KB now considers that last sport to be Strongwater’s strongest ongoing contribution to the wide world of water. In fact, he says, the shop has orders for its custom boards coming in from all across the globe. He attributes Strongwater’s reputation to the fact that their work isn’t just a business. “This is our lifestyle,” he says. Strongwater: 614 S Higgins Ave • 721-2437 • strongwatermtnsurf.com
