              Aquaholics started in 2002, with the philosophy that we wanted everyone to be comfortable coming into the surf shop. Surfers can be a little intimidating and we think the best way to keep the line up friendly is to lighten up the vibe. We are always happy to talk equipment and we’re even happier to learn something new ourselves. We’ve taught a lot of people to surf and we love to hook people up with the right equipment for a satisfying experience that will last a lifetime. We stand behind our products and we use what we sell.
Stewart was one of the first surfboard lines we carried and we still sell them as soon as we get them in. There’s no substitute for hand crafted quality and years of knowledge and experience. From the beginner friendly to the comp boards we love to have what people need.

We are located in an old church in a New England fishing village. We may be “trendy” in the “summah”, but we’re hard core in the winter. We surf year round, and nothing draws a crowd like a good old fashioned Nor’Easter. Kennebunk (Gooch’s) beach faces North, and we’re the first beach coming North (or East, as we say around here) that takes a North East wind, so we get it good. You might get a layer of ice on the visor of your hood of your 5 or 6 mil suit, but will also get some epic waves.

Don’t miss Aquaholics Special Surfer Night, the third Tuesday of June, July and August. We take kids and adults with special needs out for a surf session. We recruit at least 2 volunteers per Special Surfer, so please sign up if you’re going to be in the area. You’ll be a hero, and you’ll be glad you came!
