If you're a surfer, or you just want to give surfing a go, Warm Winds surf shop has everything you need, plus more to shoot the curl at Narragansett Town Beach. Located just a 1-minute walk from the beach, Warm Winds has a wide selection of surf, skim, and bodyboards to even snow and skateboards. If you're an avid surfer, then you can browse their basement full of all styles of surf and bodyboards. On the other hand, if you just want to try surfing for a day, they have six rental boards ranging from 7'6" tp 8'6". However, if you are going to rent a board, try to get there around opening (10am) so they have a board left!

The main attraction of Narragansett is with no doubt Town Beach (as one could obviously tell with the size of crowds during summer!).

The smaller of the two surf shops right near Narragansett Town Beach, Gansett Juice has a modest selection of surfboards and wetsuits, as well as short boards and long boards for rent. The price for renting a surfboard is the same as Warm Winds, $30, but Gansett Juice has a better and cheaper selection of rash guards. If you are going to rent a surfboard, I do highly recommend purchasing a rash guard, and Gansett Juice sells quality rash guards at only $20.
