What do you get when you combine surfing gear, the hottest clothes, and 24-hour shopping? A teenager's dream come true – Ron Jon Surf Shop. A Cocoa Beach tradition that now also has Florida locations in Fort Myers, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Panama City Beach and Key West (and soon in Clearwater Beach).
Ron Jon's started simply enough. It was 1959, and on the New Jersey shore a kid named Ron DiMenna was discovering the sport of surfing with fiberglass surfboards. His pastime soon became a passion and his homemade surfboards would no longer do. When his father heard that Ron wanted his own custom surfboard from California, he suggested, "Buy three, sell two at a profit, then yours will be free." Dad was right, Ron Jon Surf Shop was born, and as they say, the rest is history.
Inside the hot flamingo pink and tropical green Ron Jon's in Cocoa Beach, two floors are packed with everything from bathing suits to boogie boards, sand pails to surfboards, jewelry, knickknacks, and lotions. All of it available 24-hours out of every day and most of it bearing the Ron Jon logo.
The Ron Jon logo is so valued that it is not unusual to see it on teenagers and beach goers all across the state.
