The freeway Surfstores have always been the major support for extreme sports in Malta specifically where board sports are concerned. The first and only Surf shop on the island is based at level 2, The Plaza Shopping Centre in Sliema, with another branch situated in Bugibba. The Plaza shop is where one finds the technical division of the surfstores with a wide selection of equipment always on hand for our clients to drool over.
Wind, water, air and land. Four of the most important elements that characterise our planet. To these amazing ingredients add man and his soul, and you have the most exciting mixture for freedom of mind and body.
