About Us.png

We are an experience-based lifestyle boutique, a coastal concept store in the Midwest.  We are influenced and inspired by the mountains and the waves... and the people that are drawn to them.  We want you to go outside, to feel the sun and the dirt, the water and snow.

In addition to being a specialty store offering curated collections, we are also a board shop, where you can: buy or rent equipment related to paddling sports and sailing, take outdoor classes on the water, or enroll in one of our indoor Urban Surf Fitness classes.  We are your travel scout, offering advice for your upcoming adventure.  We even host our own travel retreats if you just want to tag along and not worry about the planning.

In short, we are your free-spirited friend that you love to visit, because you always have fun when we are around.  

We want to educate you, too.  Because it's not enough to "work hard, play hard"... educating ourselves is the best way to advocate our shared responsibility of acting as stewards of the community and our environment.  Community, friendship, camaraderie... they are not just buzz words.  Rather, they represent the principles which we genuinely embrace.  At the Neighborhood Offshore, we practice what we preach.  When you shop or rent with us, you're choosing to support a local business...a business that emphasizes environmental preservation and demonstrates a commitment to building up the community.  We have teamed up with Eden Reforestation Projects, and with every transaction at our shop, we plant 16 trees.  That's right.  Every transaction, every day.  So feel good about playing with us...you are not just having fun, you are also growing the community of local outdoor advocates and literally helping the environment.
