Our downtown location is really two stores in one; one side features kites, wind spinners & banners, toys, and games. The other is a surf shop with a selection of clothing, beachwear, sandals and accessories that changes almost daily as fresh shipments arrive.

Driving Directions to MACkite Surf Shop:
From the East: (Grand Rapids, Lansing, Detroit, etc.)
Take I-96 west to exit 9. (This is a LEFT exit.) Merge onto M104 and take this road through Spring Lake. Take the left lane up the ramp and cross the drawbridge. You'll now be on US 31, or Beacon Blvd. Move to the middle lane before you reach the light (Jackson Ave.) as your lane becomes right turn only. Go through three lights; the third will be Washington St. Go one more block to Franklin Ave., just past the Mobil gas station, and turn right. Seven blocks down, between Second and First Streets, you'll see our shop on the right, with free parking behind it.

From the North (Muskegon, Ludington, etc.) or South: (Holland, South Haven, St. Joseph, etc.)
Take US 31 to Grand Haven. From the north, your directions to our store will be the same as above once you cross the drawbridge. From the south, watch for signs directing you to the waterfront. The sign which reads "Waterfront- Next Left" will direct you across the median onto Franklin Ave, which you can take to the free parking behind our shop.

Take I 90 East
Take exit 21 (towards Detroit) to I 94 East
Get on I 196 N / US 31 N (exit 34 towards Holland / Grand Rapids)
