Tampa Bay Surf Shop

Watersports West is proud to serve the Tampa Bay area with everything surf related from surfboards, paddleboards, kiteboards, kayaks to wetsuits, lycra, rashguards, boardshorts and all other surf apparel. We are a dedicated surf shop where fun on the water is our passion. In addition to stocking hundreds of paddleboards, kayaks and kiteboards, we stock a full selection of apparel for men and women to make sure you’re properly outfitted for any weather condition Florida throws our way.



Even though our winter doesn’t last long here in Tampa Bay, we want to make sure you’re comfortable and never miss a day on the water. We stock a variety of full body wetsuits that range in thickness, cut, flexibility and point of entry. Companies like O’Neill, Quiksilver, Billabong and Rip Curl have really stepped up their game with the quality of neoprene they’re using. The newer suits are more flexible than they’ve ever been while remaining affordable. If you’ve never owned a wetsuit or have had a wetsuit in the past, stop by our shop and one of our professional staff members will assist you with a suit that fits your budget and is practical for your needs. Shop Men’s Wetsuits  or  Shop Women’s Wetsuits

Mens Wetsuits

Mens Wetsuit AccessoriesSometimes a full body wetsuit isn’t what you need, which is why we stock a variety of neoprene accessories like booties, gloves, beanies, wetsuit tops, bottoms and shorties. Whether you’re swimming in a pool, paddleboarding or kiteboarding, we have wetsuit top for you. There’s pullover and zip-up tops for both men and women with different thicknesses, materials and fits. You can mix and match different neoprene accessories to build your own suit rather than having to fit into a full body wetsuit.

Ladies Wetsuits



LycraLycra is an elastic fabric that can be either tight fitting or loose fitting for performance wear. The lycra we carry for both men and women has UV protection built in to it. This lycra can be used for chafe protection from the watersport you participate in or for underneath your wetsuit or boardshort. Many of the company’s lycra product we carry (Quiksilver, Roxy, Volcom, Ripcurl, Billabong, O’Neill) are designed for every day use due to their comfortable features.

Sandals three
We carry a ridiculous amount of sandals! We literally have more than four walls covered from top to bottom with sandals. We carry a full selection of sandals from Olukai, Reef, Rip Curl, Sanuk, Rainbow and Roxy. We have a variety of styles and shapes to fit any occasion. The Olukai sandals have a higher arch support making them feel like the comfiest sandals, as well as being a doctor recommended sandal for hip, back or knee problems. The Reef are an all time classic and we carry a full range with many different shapes and materials. And of course, most of our sandal stock is boater and water friendly!

The newer fabrics are also way more water resistant than ever before making them dry fast and last longer. We always keep a selection of last year’s models on sale. No matter if you’re a surfer, paddler, kiteboarder, wakeboarder or just a beachgoer, stop by our shop for the largest selection of boardshorts in the Tampa Bay area.

Hybrid boardshorts fit the bill for those that want casual shorts with all the comfort and materials that regular boardshorts use.
