Since opening in 1993, Hayle's Down The Line Surf Shop has always been a true surfer's surf shop, with surfboards, wetsuits and surf hardware being the core of our business.
Every year we traverse the globe as part of our relentless quest to bring the world's newest and best equipment to UK shores. And having done so since the 1990s, we've built a great rapport with some of the world's leading manufacturers - which translates into high quality and cutting edge technology for our customers.
Having introduced some of Australia's finest surfboards to Europe over the past couple of decades (JS and DHD for example), we've now started to bring in some of the best that America has to offer in the form of Lost (Matt 'Mayhem' Biolos), Ryan Lovelace, Bing (Matt Calvani) and Christenson. And in 2015 the amazing new surfboard models keep coming - from all of the above as well as Pukas, Channel Islands, Vouch and many, many more (#weleadthepack).
Surfboards are our speciality, but we also know what's what when it comes to wetsuits, stocking all the leading brands, including O'Neill, Patagonia, Rip Curl and XCEL. Between us we've fitted thousands upon thousands of wetsuits so we know all about those little nuances in fit which make all the difference.
We all surf and we all travel; between us we have covered every continent. We are a real, bricks and mortar shop located in the town of Hayle - right on the doorstep of some of the UK's best surf spots.
Our shop opening times are 9:30 - 5:30, 7 days a week, and our website is always open 365 days a year!
