'The Isle Surf and Skate' Turns Hobbies into Business: Giving You the Business
An Erie man has turned his hobbies into a business serving some outdoor enthusiasts.
The Isle Surf and Skate, which is located on W. 12th St. near Potomac Ave. in Millcreek Township, is a surfer's haven.
Dan Parra had the idea for the business nine months ago and worked to make it a reality with the blessing of his wife.
It offers boards, paddles, wetsuits and other gear for surfers.
There's even a special skateboard room where the boards can be assembled in less than a half-hour.
The Isle Surf and Skate plans to expand in the future.
The couple would like to offer a mobile unit near Presque Isle where beachgoers can grab a boogie board, umbrella and beach chairs for a day at the beach.
