It was not until the early 1970’s, when the city’s no-surfing ordinance was lifted, that the well-tempered waters of Narragansett Bay were inhabited by much more than swimmers and sailors. The secret spots, rocky coves and pristine beaches of Newport have become the envy of surfers of all levels and abilities across the country and no one knows how to outfit them quite like the Newport locals themselves at Breakwater Surf Co..

When the intimidating, notoriously “dangerous” sport of surfing got a makeover in the 1950s that included new materials (polyurethane, foam, fiberglass), new structural features (fins, stabilizers, nose lift) and new riding techniques the true beginnings of a surf industry and surf culture really took shape.
