Maine Surfers Union is a surf and lifestyle retail space with an in-house shaping bay to make our own surfboards and your custom board. MSU is the brainchild of Charlie Fox, a lifetime water enthusiast who grew up surfing in the Northeast before moving to California where he experimented with shaping and found a passion for surfboard design.

Wanting to bring that passion back to his home state of Maine, he opened a brick and mortar store in Portland’s Old Port. Located at 15 Free Street, Portland, Maine we offer hand-shaped boards 100% made in the US along with top of the line surf products and men’s and women’s clothing. As one of few surf shops this far North on the East Coast we aim to share the stoke of surfing, which to us is a lifestyle based on an appreciation and respect for the outdoors, the ocean, and fellow surfers.
