About Vic or Bob

Wheels N Waves has been in business since 1974 and is Maine's oldest surf shop. In 2013 Wheels N Waves was named Maine's Best Surf Shop by Downeast Magazine.

In 2011 after many years of renting, we were able to purchase this great new location, which has a 2 bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor. In 2013 we opened our 2nd location in downtown Ogunquit and walking distance to Ogunquit Beach. The Ogunquit location is smaller, but still offers rentals and sales of most things we offer in Wells.

Vic or Bob purchased this apartment in 2011

Surf Shop apt

  • 5 of 5

This spot was perfect for us. Large apartment close to everything. Moody Beach and Wells beach both within a short bike ride. Owners and shop staff were all very friendly. Our dog had fun too, she thought she was a 'shop dog' for the week. We would stay here again.

Quite, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My dog and I absolutely adored the stay above the shop. It was nice not having neighbors, and the shop closed at 6. So we had a large area to ourselves. Its perfectly located between everything you could want to do. And theres a couple places to eat right down the road. The apartment itself was huge. The site pictures do the apartment no justice. It was a great stay, and I can not wait to go back!

Exactly what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town to visit family and this place was exactly what we needed. It had everything we would need to feel comfortable and they let me have the dog here all at a wonderful price. The dog was super comfortable right away and so we're we. Thanks again! We will definitely be back here again when we visit family.

Winter in Wells

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a Xmas getaway and found a nice place in Maine our favorite go to place from CT. The surf shop wasn't open to try out their services on Wells Beach in December but our hosts couldn't have been more pleasant and the apartment more than adequate for a nice, quiet mini vacation over the holidays. It was warm and had all the conveniences with more than enough room for a bunch of beach enthusiasts in the on-season months. Grocery nearby and nice restaurants still open in the winter were appreciated. Ogunquit, Portland Head Light and Nubble Light Station nearby attractions. Enjoyed our stay, thank you very much! Janice and Mike

We loved the comfort of it all!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I so enjoyed our stay that we extended it another night! The apartment was very comfy- we really enjoyed the big comfy bed too!Our 2 little dogs adjusted quite well- and settled in to their home away from home- and one of them is blind too! It was very close to everywhere we wanted to go- we did the majority of our Christmas shopping while there as well. Vic was very nice and very pleasant and down to earth- we felt very welcome! We are so hoping to make it again next Nov. for a repeat time of fun! Yvonne & Clyde Savery, Hinsdale, Ma.
