Patagonia Cardiff

When the Malloy brothers – Chris, Keith and Dan – began developing a surf line for Patagonia in 2004, the prospect of opening a California-based surf store was part of their plan. In late May of 2006, that plan became reality.

The store occupies the first floor of the former Cardiff Mercantile building, located on San Elijo Avenue just a few blocks south of Birmingham. Professional surfer/writer/photographer Devon Howard is the manager.

Rather than just carrying outdoor-industry-specific product, this store caters to the needs of core surfers and watermen – both male and female. We offer our own Patagonia surf apparel using organic cotton, as well as board shorts made from recycled materials. Also available are surfboards, wetsuits and bodysurfing gear, as well as paddleboards, free-diving and other surf accessory products.

As part of our environmental mission, we will provide ongoing support for local environmental groups with products and/or donations. We’re also pleased to offer the use of the large open patio to environmental organizations for meetings.

Stop by for a visit and talk story with our staff. We look forward to meeting you.
