YOUR “INLAND” SURF SHOP SINCE 1975.
Inland Surf Shop was owned by local Bill Murray (not the actor) from 1975-1994 until it became FreeRide Surf & Skate Shop. We enjoy hearing all of the stories from back in the day and how much everyone loved Bill. We work hard to continue the same tradition of stoke in Gainesville.
We all have the same true love for the ocean, sand, and endless waves…our drive just takes a little longer.
Unlike the other psuedo-surf shops around, you won’t have to sort through “I LOVE CALIFORNIA” t-shirts. We love Cali too, but we’re in Florida. Be proud.

We’ve got you covered!
DING REPAIRS. BECAUSE SURF HAPPENS…
FreeRide’s crew can fix most minor dings on any surfboard. You can either purchase a fiberglass or epoxy ding repair kit or for a minimal fee drop it off and we’ll fix it for you.
If the repair is severe, (i.e. board is cracked in half, fin box ripped out) we’ll send it out to our shaper in St. Augustine and he’ll bring it back to life.
Take care of the dings! If not, your surfboard could become heavy, water-logged and begin to delaminate.
Consider getting a board bag for the times you’re out of the water. The bag protects from both dings and the yellowing from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
WE BUY AND SELL USED SURFBOARDS
Yes, we purchase used surfboards. No, we cannot provide you a quote over the phone. Bring in your board any day of the week to get an estimate. Keep in mind, we only buy used surfboards based on what we need in our inventory at the time. You also have the option of trading your surfboard in for credit/trade towards another surfboard we have in stock.
LET US HELP YOU DESIGN YOUR OWN CUSTOM SURFBOARD
We work with some of the best shapers in the state and for that matter, the world. You choose the size, shape, style and color. Then our master shapers and artists will make you a one-of-a-kind piece of art designed to perform and last unlike cheaper mass produced “pop outs.”
