HOLDEN BEACH — Tony Dillard wants to bring the surf culture back to Holden Beach.
He thinks just the way to do it is through his not-so-new surf shop at the busiest intersection near Holden Beach.
Holden Beach Surf and Skate has been an entity near the quaint island for last 20 years as previous owner Don Wheeler built the surf shop into one of the locals’ favorite shopping spots.
On New Year’s Day, Wheeler turned the reins over to young, enthusiastic 27-year-old Tony Dillard.
Dillard has big plans for the store.
