Before hitting the beach, bring the whole family on over to Free to Ride, a fun, laid-back boutique and surf shop. Free to Ride's storefront represents the culture of Capitola, California and surfing. For men, women, and children, the shop packs in clothing and accessories that's ideal for both warm beach weather and those cool nights when the fog rolls in. But Free to Ride carries plenty of skim boards, boogie boards, and beach toys. Bathing suits and sun lotion are conveniently available too. Free to Ride is also a great place for an inexpensive beach souvenir. Free to Ride stocks up on everything surfers need to get back out into the water, including wet suits (children sizes too), fins, wax, and a distinct selection of quality surf boards. Free to Ride is one of the only spots where people can find Source and GP surfboards, which are both made locally in Santa Cruz.
