About Us

Formed out of our love and passion of the grassroots skate and surfing culture on the Gulf Coast, we opened The Compound Boardshop in 2003.

15 years later, The Compound has become the premier supplier for the surf, skate, skim, and fly fishing communities in Sarasota and the surrounding cities. We have to say a big THANK YOU! for all of the support and countless friendships we have formed over the years. We believe in being heavily involved in the local communities by hosting video premieres, surf and skim camps, skate camps and contests, as well as beach clean-ups and fly tying classes.

In addition to our local community outreach, we also spearhead Compound Cares, a non-profit organization that utilizes a unique approach through surfing and skateboarding to empower children from various walks of life to create sustainable opportunities. We also sponsor many local and nationally recognized talents in hopes they too, can make their dreams come true.
