The concept of the original surf shop has been revived with the opening of Strictly Hardcore Surf & Shape at the corner of 37th Street and Avenue R in Galveston, Texas.
While shop owner James Fulbright has been shaping boards at the location for nearly two decades, the shop’s opening is the first opportunity for visitors to see the shaping take place firsthand, browse a select inventory of hard and soft goods – including board bags, apparel and surfboards – and soak in the ambiance of a bygone era when the surf shop was located a bit off-the-beaten path and served as a gathering place for surfers of all abilities.
Open 9 or 10, sometimes 11, mostly noon or 1
Close 5 or 6, sometimes 4, mostly 2 or 3
Closed for: Big surf, luaus, no like work
Seriously: Open Monday through Saturday at 10 a.m.; Sundays at 11 a.m.
