Nantucket is a surfing hub with something for water sports enthusiasts of every level. There are plenty of beaches to show off your skills and have the time of your life. If you are new to the sport, the staff can probably direct you to recommended surfing schools and instruction provided on the island. STOKE ACK also has a variety of skate-inspired clothing gear and wear.

It is a clothing and accessories store located at 48 Centre Street, whose central theme is surfing. It offers a wide variety of one-of-a-kind surf accessories comprising both new and vintage stock. Moreover, there are RAEN sunglasses and  STOKE branded garb wear. For men, you can choose from tees, shirts, shorts, pants, sweats, swimwear, and shoes. For women, you’ll find tops, shorts, pants, dresses, skirts, jumpsuits, beachwear, swimwear, shoes, sweats, and sweaters.

Other than surf wear, STOKE ACK has a coffee shop where you can enjoy coffee in a surf-themed side room. Megan Keller, a highly-skilled barista and connoisseur, will ensure your taste buds are well catered for. You can have a coffee or a glass of juice with a delicious baked goodie as you enjoy the soothing background music, catch up with friends or read a book.

There is also a hidden garden in the back space of this shop that is wonderful when other locations are busy, and this is a nice oasis under a weeping willow tree with plenty of chair and table combinations.

Music is quite important to STOKE ACK; hence they are intentional about what they play. It mainly comprises the 80s with a mix of punk, post-punk, new-wave, hip-hop, and other music themes. If you like what you hear, you can get more of it from their radio show, Rogue Wave, on the local radio station ACK 97.7 FM every Saturday from 8–9 pm EST.

The STOKE ACK clothing and accessories store is open daily and operates from 11 am to 4 pm on weekdays and from 10 am to 5 pm on weekends. You may physically visit their shop or order a delivery or shipment from their website. If you are in Nantucket, you can have your goods delivered to your doorstep the same day you order.
