Permastoked with Derik Hyatt

Tarah Coates: The Surf’s Up in Kincardine and Goderich at SurfSup Eco Shop

June 26, 2020

In this episode, Derik Hyatt chats with the really cool former Wind Turbine Technician turned Owner of SurfSup Eco Shop and Rentals in Kincardine, Ontario, Tarah Coates.  We discuss the women’s revolution of surfing on the Great Lakes, the pros and cons of owning a surf shop in Southwestern Ontario, going green, the origins or Tarah’s stoke, how she transitioned from creating wind energy to riding wave energy and much more!

You can connect with Tarah online at and and on Facebook at @surfsupecoshopandrent and Instagram at @surfsupecoshopandrentals and @surfsup_ecoshop and on Twitter at @SURFSUPecoshop or you visit her in person and take a SUP or surf lesson at either her Goderich or Kincardine location.
