Surf Happens has a new headquarters.

Surf Happens, founded in 2000, is owned and operated by mom-and-pop team Chris and Jenny Keet.

“We are looking to create a different kind of surf shop,” said Chris Keet, “offering artisanal surf goods and eco-minded products that promote a healthy and positive lifestyle.

“For the past 18 years, we have offered our clients advice in wellness, training, and environmentally conscious living. Now we have a place to invite the community and share the products we believe in,” Keet said.

The new space will serve as the surf school’s headquarters and the Surf Happens Surf Shop.

The shop will offer surfboards, surf-specific training equipment, health and wellness items, local surf art and apparel, and eco-minded products.

The surf school offers year-round surf lessons, surf camps, rentals, parties and events, including the annual Rincon Classic. Surf Happens has been operating summer camps at Santa Claus Lane since summer 2000.
