Samantha (“Sam”) Scordato is the 25 year old proprietor of the OG Surf and Skate, a specialty store that sells surf boards, skate boards, accessories and life style clothing (bathing suits, shirts and what to wear when boarding.)  When she told me that she carries wax and leashes, I looked again to see if I had stumbled on a sex shop.  But no such luck.

The business used to be located beneath the Majestic Hotel. Some of you may recall that shop. Currently they are in the strip mall outside the gates of the Grove, but only until that lease is up.  But Sam will be the only employee at the Main Avenue OG store, and they are now open—daily 9:30-7.

Sam carries beginners (“starters”)  equipment for both sports as well as more advanced gear. She says that she prefers to deal with “small brands” instead of major suppliers because she, herself is a small business.

The S and S shop  (to be distinguished from S and M shop which will open on Main next year) will be open year round. Sam says that winter is a prime time of year for ocean surfers.

Today Sam and her parents are busy organizing the shop, so you can stop by and say hello. She is an effervescent  young lady, less than five feet vertically, but with an extra large personality.  Her shirt says “Brooklyn South Homicide Squad” so evidently she knows somebody who knows somebody.
