Stopping at the Ron Jon Surf Shop in Cocoa Beach has become a tradition. This year was no exception, in fact we stopped there twice this time. The first trip I grabbed a t-shirt and a cool stocking stuffer for husband. I gave it to him on Christmas Eve and he wanted to grab one for our friend who was house sitting. Hence the 2nd stop on the way back to Orlando.
Parking can be a pain here, people often park and walk the block to the beach. Usually we have better luck in the larger lot near the bus parking. I will admit when we want to quick spend 15 minutes checking out the waves we have left our car in the lot after making a purchase.
This is the flagship location and its open 24 hours a day. On Christmas this place was open! Across the street is a little rental shop for chairs, boards and the like. Here is more rental info: http://www.ronjonsurfshop.com/location/beach-rentals-cocoa-beach.aspx
Sometimes upstairs they have some items on discount. We always head up there for the juniors section for Daughter. She likes the souvenir shirt that does not make her look like a tourist, like Roxy items.
