There are many surf shops on the Jersey shore, but Ron Jon is the original. This shop is huge and has plenty of merchandise for serious surfers and casual shoppers.

This is the ORIGINAL Ron Jon's Surf Shop. You have to stop here at least once. There's also 3 different levels of shopping. Pick up a free decal.

This store doesn't even compare to the other Ron Jon's dotted along the coasts, this is the OG! From the outside it looks like a Las Vegas hotel, from the bright yellow and turquoise paint, inside has a surf shop feel with lots of boards,...More

World known & you cannot have a trip to the shore with out stopping at Ron John's. Bathing suits & Beach wear. You don't have a surfboard, no problem because you can rent one. Bright & Friendly place to shop.
