It all started with a surfboard back in 1959...

Ron Jon Surf Shop was founded in 1959 on the New Jersey shore.  After gaining popularity with surfers and beachgoers over the years, the company expanded - opening stores in vacation destinations along the East Coast from Long Beach Island to Cocoa Beach to Key West and beyond.

"The Original" Ron Jon Surf Shop opened in Long Beach Island, New Jersey in 1961. Two years later Ron Jon Surf Shop founder, Ron DiMenna, headed to Florida and opened the "One-of-a-Kind" Ron Jon Surf Shop in Cocoa Beach.
