The Blue Water Terrace Restaurant, out on the East End of STX, now has surfboards for sale?
Mostly mid-lengths and longboards. Nice looking boards, handcrafted up on Long Island New York, where the waves are similar, but the water quality is not.

Waves not similar to LI but boards would work fine

I guess we used to get more "punch" up there at times, but I do not miss the gray / green water and paddling out in icy, slushy, waves this time of year.
I had a three duck dive rule in the winter. If it looked like more than three exposed face submersions on the paddle out, I'd pass on the waves and just drive to the diner for an early breakfast. More than three times plunged under 39 degree water and my face would be in pain.
Even the thought of crawling into my old 4/5/6 winter wetsuit sends chills up my spine.
