GulfWind Paddle & Surf is your go to Surf Shop and Paddle Board store in Santa Rosa Beach, South Walton County, along Scenic Highway 30a, and surrounding areas.

Paddleboards, aka Stand Up Paddle Boards(SUP), have become a very popular activity over the last few years, and GulfWind Paddle & Surf has been a huge part of providing locals, tourists, and others the best boards and SUP equipment the sport has to offer.

Looking for an Electric Bike? We also offer some of the best E-Bikes in South Walton County and the Florida Pandhandle. We are a Prodecotech Dealer, and proud to be one.

Easy access to the Gulf of Mexico, the Choctawhatchee bay, inlets, and inter coastal water ways make South Walton an ideal place to pick up the sport of Paddle Boarding. It’s great exercise, great for getting to fish in hard to reach coves and bayous, and just plain relaxing and fun.

Steve Ortner, owner of  GulfWind Paddle & Surf isn’t some dude trying to sell you a board, he’s a paddle boarder and paddle fisherman himself. He has been riding SUP’s since before the craze took off.

Regardless of the type of board you’re looking for, Steve and the staff at GulfWind can put you on the paddle board that’s right for you, give you pointers, and take the time to teach you all the tips and tricks of using your new paddle board.
