Konasports was started in 1969 by my father Mike Sciarra, and has been a well established store for almost 40 years. He started the business making surfboards in his father’s garage in Wildwood, NJ. It has since grown into a retail store and about five years ago we decided to expand our business by taking it online. We launched an ecommerce website giving more exposure and accessibility to our product line.
Konasports was built on two main values - family ties and the surfing lifestyle. My father grew up on a surfboard and will still hit the waves to this day. Surfing is still a big part of what we do. I surf, my brother surfs and a large number of our employees surf. Our business practices reflect the surfing lifestyle by taking each day as it comes, planning and practicing for every big “break”, and perfecting our business to run smoothly and with style.
