Definitely closed. The shop was burned. I haven't talked to Pi since I've been back on island only one week, so, I can't say if they'll try and open again. Doesn't look good right now.
Coconuts is remodeling and probably name change as well and should be opening soon.
I live West and many changes since Maria. Lost Dog moved one door north.

Pi is living in TX with Q. Bill is living in MI. I sure do miss them and working at FCS. They won’t be back to reopen as the building burnt down. A real tough blow to Fsted and the cruise ships. The land owner for a long time was trying to get the out of there. He is a dick and a real liar. Khama come for dat man. Coconuts looked like a hot mess before I moved back to STT. I can’t imagine anyone investing in that place. Barely holding up. RIP FCS.

Sadly Freedom City Surf and Grill received devastating damage from Irma, Jose and finally Maria, totaling the surf shop and badly damaging the Grill. Maria's wrath hit FCS directly.

I never liked Freedom City Surf nor the people who ran it. Plus, the access to the beach in that area is rocky. I certainly won't be missing them.

I am so sad that they are gone. We tried to go every Sunday from the East End. They were always friendly to us. Yes, the beach is rocky but so good for snorkeling and finding treasures. Just a different opinion.
