Keep It Salty
The family-owned Salty Dog Surf Shop has a great mascot and backstory. Salty Dog was born in a surf wax shipping crate in the back of the shop. In no time, this little guy became a surf dog often seen surfing, windsurfing, and skateboarding. Seriously, this is one cool dog — so cool that you’ll never catch him without his shades.
Duck into Salty Dog Surf Shop to rent a surfboard or shop for Salty Dog-branded beach gear. They’ve got awesome shirts, tanks, totes, hats, stickers, koozies, vizors, keychains, lanyards, mugs, sippy cups, and jewelry.
If you find an item you like, you may want to pick up two. Once you return home to tell your bestie the epic tale of Salty Dog, think of the smile on their face when a matching gift suddenly appears!
