This place was really impressive because it was so huge. You need to be sure to take some time wondering around to see everything. It has these wonderful murals on the store front, which are a huge eye catcher. Lots of wonderful antiques to see in here too.

I had been driving all round Carlsbad looking for a place to mail my VT Meeting signed postcards and couldn't find even a streetside mail box. I stopped at this surf shop and asked the sales lady. She couldn't think of an answer, but graciously allowed me to use the shop's mail box, which was very kind of her.
What to buy: Surf boards and all the stuff that goes with the sport of surfing. They also sell swimsuits and accessories.
