March 8, 2014 - Get ready for a new season!
Stupendously - that’s how our 2013 season went in Grand Bend and beyond! In fact, our 2013 season went so incredibly well, we couldn’t even find time to update this website. That’s going to change in 2014, as we have major news in the Endless Surf family worthy of frequent updates. But first, we want to send out a massive thank you to everyone for yet another outstanding season: Mahalo Grand Bend! This town and all of its great people and visitors make this thing worthwhile. Now, onto to 2014! In addition to the standard collection of killer new gear and clothing soon to be in stock for our spring opening, we will be expanding the Endless Surf footprint into Huron County. Endless Surf, along with other local entrepreneurs, will be opening Huron County’s first and only wake and eco park providing cable riding in a sheltered and safe inland lake just 20 minutes from the door of our shop. Welcome to Windmill Lake – opening Victoria Day Weekend, May 2014...stay tuned!
May 21, 2013 - We're back, with 50% off ALL last season's STOCK (that means everything) through the end of May!!!Wow! I think that's the longest we’ve ever gone between website updates. By no means does this mean that we haven’t been busy. We’ve permanently moved the entire retail operation closer to the beach. With the massive amount of friends we had coming through our doors down at 83 Main Street as our rental shop, we have now made 83 Main Street our new permanent location for retail, rentals, everything! So, if you didn’t already figure this out during the gorgeous holiday weekend that we just had, we have left our lower level location up the street and settled into our new home at 83 Main Street, just a few doors off the beach. Come out and see the new store! We’re also back to in-season / Summer hours (Monday - Wednesday: 11am to 8pm, Thursday - Sunday: 10am to 8pm, holiday Mondays: 10am to 8pm), which means you’ll be able to pop in any day of the week. And in case you didn't notice the headline, any item still in the store from last season is now 50% off through the end of the month! This stuff is moving quickly, but there's still some left, even after the busy weekend we just had. So, come on out for the deals before it's too late.

BIG NEWS!!! Andy put in some good-sized orders for killer 2013 gear and clothing down at the Surf Expo, so he's gotta start making some room in the shop for this new merchandise. This means that effective today, the BUY ONE GET ONE FREE sale is back at Endless Surf through Thanksgiving Monday! Some 'bigger ticket' items may be excluded from this sale. Excluded items from this sale however will still be on sale through Thanksgiving Monday at 10% to 40% off depending on the item. Come visit the shop today or call 519.238.2813 for more details.

Haven't seen the shop in a few weeks? Well, the Fall season is the best time to pay us a visit if you're looking for some deals! Team rider Ben has whipped up a video (see below) tour of our latest offerings, most of which are on sale through Thanksgiving! In other news, if you're a fan of the website and the Endless Surf culture, but live in a distant location that prevents you from making it out to see us in Grand Bend as much as you'd like to, we will be launching an online retail store at Endlesssurf.ca for the 2013 season. More news on that to come!
September 5, 2012
Thanks to all of our Endless Surfers for yet another killer season along the shores of one of Canada's greatest beaches! As always, Endless Surf hours through Canadian Thanksgiving weekend are now a bit lighter than they would be prior to Labour Day. We are still open every day, just not as long. And the rental shop is only likely to be opened up on weekends, so if you're in town looking for rentals, visit us at the main shop first and make sure to check out our Mid Season Fall Hours before you making the trip to Grand Bend. This coming weekend, our fearless leader Andy Oke will be down in Orland, Florida for the 2012 Surf Expo checking out the latest gear and clothing to be showcased in the shop for 2013! Needless to say, we are all super-pumped to learn more about some of the new technologies and cutting edge designs that we've been hearing about from Naish Kiteboarding, Hyperlite Wakeboards, and many of our other beloved brands carried in the shop in Grand Bend. We'll get back to you soon with photos, news, and info from the trade show.
In other news, Ben Dobri's team rider status for Endless Surf is now official as his biography has been posted on the Team page (along with some more cool videos like this one:
August 14, 2012
Hey Endless Surfers! We've had a great month of wind, sun, and flat water. This is probably why we haven't been on the site to say for so long. Consequently, we've got some great news to post! First of all, big thanks to everyone that came up to help out at Wakestock and also to all of our new customers that visited our display and picked up some killer Endless Surf gear. The weather was a bit rough this year up in Collingwood, but the event was off the hook as always! In other news, Endless Surf is now the official Ontario distributor for Ocean Rodeo kite and surf drysuits. Over the years, Ocean Rodeo have perfected their craft as manufacturing some of the most flexible, comfortable, and user friendly drysuits on the market. The Pyro Pro for example, is said to be the only choice for kiteboarders riding in cold water and even colder weather. Plus, they make drysuits designed for surfing, sailing, and other watersports that require extreme protection in extreme conditions. Needless to say, we are not only very proud to be the new Ontario distributor for Ocean Rodeo drysuits, but even prouder to be the exclusive dealer for Ontario's West Coast.
Last but definitely not least, we'd like to introduce our latest team rider Grand Bend local Ben Dobri!
July 10, 2012
After a solid couple months of success down the strip from the main store, it's time to introduce Endless Surf's affiliate shop at 83 Main Street in Grand Bend just a stone's off the water. Not sure if you're ready to make the plunge and buy a paddle board or cruiser bike? Now, you can rent these items, among many others, at great rates down at the Endless Surf Rental Shop! Check out the shop now.
July 1, 2012 -
Happy birthday to Canada and the USA and to anyone else that's lucky enough to have a July birthday. In fact, rumor has it that Mr. Andy Oke, the fearless leader of Endless Surf, has his birthday falling on a Friday this year: Friday, July 13th! That should be a good one. Buy him a beer if you see him out on the 13th. On second thought, maybe just wish him a happy birthday, as Andy will likely have already consumed enough beer. Happy Canada Day everyone! Have a good one.
June 12, 2012 - Another month of endless killer weather is upon us + news on annual Canada Day Endless Surf Demo
As if our incredible holiday weekend in May wasn't enough, June has produced even more record breaking summer weather! So, in the spirit of this excellent weather, we wanted to pop on the website and make sure that everyone knew about our latest promotion: Buy any SUP (stand-up paddle board) & paddle, and receive a FREE SUP LESSON with purchase! This promotion runs through the end of the first week of July, as we will be holding our annual Canada Day Weekend SUP demo day with Boardworks Canada and we would like our participants in the demo to be able to take advantage of this promotion. This year, we will also be holding a kiteboarding demo assisted by our favorite kite school Surf Culture Canada! The tentative date for the demo day is Saturday June 30th.
May 10, 2012 - Full weekly hours and new stock as of Victoria Day Weekend!

March 21, 2012 - We're back - GRAND OPENING FOR THE 2012 SEASON IS THIS SATURDAY, MARCH 24!
It's been a long time since we updated the site as we have been away most of the winter testing out new gear and scouting for new soft goods for the store. We have tons of great stuff arriving at the store starting in April. Until then, all clothing items are on sale at 75% off. This is an unheard of discount for a surf shop, but we gotta make room for the new stuff. This sale ends when the store closes on Easter Monday, April 9. We'll be open from 12-6 every Saturday and Sunday through Easter and then open with the same hours on Easter Monday. On April 10, we kick back into our mid spring season hours open daily from NOON to 6pm. See you in the shop!

November 18, 2011 - We're still open in Grand Bend!
We wanted to send out a big thanks to everyone that came in and took advantage of our buy 1 get 1 free sale last weekend. It was a huge success. If you missed it though, we do still have a variety of select 2011 items on closeout and we are open every Saturday and Sunday from NOON to 6PM right up until Christmas.
November 10, 2011 - Christmas comes early at Endless Surf - REMINDER!
Don't forget about our sale this weekend folks. This is likely to be our biggest sale of the year, so it's not one to miss! We're extending our off season weekend hours slightly by opening up this Friday, November 11 at noon to 6pm and then keeping those same hours on Saturday and Sunday. This buy one get one free sale includes everything except kites, kiteboards, and SUPs. That means that even wakeboards, bindings, and paddles are part of this sale! From t-shirts, shades, and shoes to surfboards and wetsuits; buy one, and you get another one of equal or lesser value for free. See you this weekend.
October 29, 2011 - Christmas comes early at Endless Surf!
For one weekend only, the Grand Bend Chamber of Commerce is running their second annual 'Christmas Comes Early' open house and shopping extravaganza, in which Endless Surf is participating. For the weekend of November 11 to 13, we will be open on Friday from noon to 6pm and open again on Saturday and Sunday for our regular fall hours. As a participant in the shopping extravaganza, we are running a buy one get one free sale all weekend. This 3 day sale applies to almost every product in the store except kites, kiteboards, and SUPs.
October 4, 2011 - New Galleries Posted
We've posted a couple new galleries showcasing the epic Lake Huron weather from this past weekend. Visit the gallery page and take a look.
October 1, 2011 - High Quality Surf Weather
The Endless Surf has been taking advantage of the insane weather we've been having. The strong NW winds have brought massive waves to southern Lake Huron as we quickly learned at our Friday evening Surf session in Kincardine, ON and our Saturday SUP session in Bayfield, ON. On the kiting front, local Jelly Fish Boards pro riders Matt Santoro, Terrie Boddaert and Mike Sloan were tearing it up today in 30+ knots of wind. They were the only riders at Kettle Point and Main Beach in Grand Bend going strapless. Why paddle your surfboard into the waves when you can just have your kite pull you in? We'll be getting more 10+ ft waves tomorrow. Come out and hit it with us!
September 14, 2011 - New photos
September 6, 2011 - News news news!
We're starting a new September with lots of Endless Surf related news.
- On August 26, 2011, our very own Jason Kloss made national headlines by completing a 65km swim across Lake Huron to help raise money to support the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society. Members of the Endless Surf Paddle Team were at Jason's side for the home stretch of his swim. Of course, Jason didn't need us for that last 7km as he did swim the entire crossing unassisted, but we were still extremely honoured just to be there with him and help him to support such a worthwhile cause. To learn more, please visit http://kloss2cross4cure.ca/. Jason is still accepting donations towards his final of goal of $15,000. He's getting close! Donate here. And to see Jason complete his swim. We also posted a small collection of still shots of Jason's swim in our gallery. Check it out!
- You can also check out this video of his finishing the swim:
- Team rider and co-owner Andy Oke placed 4th in the Intermediate Class at the Sarnia Boarder Pass WakeUp Call competition this past weekend. Team Rider Dane Johnston also represented Endless Surf very well in the Junior Class at WakeUp Call just as he did at Wakestock and the nationals in Peterborough this summer. Big props to Dane and Andy! And as if those two having stellar rides at WakeUp Call wasn't already enough to make it a killer Endless Surf weekend, we also had a great turnout for our SUP demo at the Boarder Pass the same day.
- In day to day news, we're recruiting new kiters and paddlers by the day and general traffic in the store has just been amazing! Maybe all the crazy weather we've been having has sparked a new interest in extreme sports. Whatever the cause may be, keep it up! Thanks for your generous support throughout another great Summer and thanks for keeping the planet greener by getting involved in green sports.
- Finally, our Mid Fall Season hours have now kicked in. We're still open 7 days a week through Canadian Thanksgiving to meet your green sport needs! Our hours are as follows (see contact page for full details on business hours):
- Monday - Friday: NOON to 6pm
- Saturday and Sunday: 11AM to 7pm
August 25, 2011 - It's finally time for some Grand Bend kiting!
