"Life Liberty & the pursuit of waves"

This all started with a dream. Both owners had a passion for the ocean, surfing and board building. 40 Toes Virginia Beach Surf Co is veteran owned and operated, and our motto around the shop quickly became “Charlie Mike,” or continue mission, after we opened up and immediately faced the COVID impacts.

As with so many other Americans and small businesses across the country during this time, we persevered and thrived under adversity to get to where we are now.

Don't take our word for it


This awesome surf shop is tucked away from the hustle bustle of VB but it's definitely worth leaving the beaten path! we stopped in for the first time today with plan to check it out and just grab t-shirts. Ended up getting a tour of the whole facility! I learned a ton about how boards are made. Such a cool spot and they are super passionate about building surfboards. Definitely coming back this summer, possibly to make our own boards!




Fastest and most reliable ding repair crew in the area..hands down. These guys WILL TAKE CARE OF YOU! Reasonable time lines and pricing. Only place I'm ever bringing a ding back to.
