“Be Like Water”

Nichols Surfshop, New Smyrna Beach

Nichols Surf Shop

Nichols Surf Shop has been providing surf lessons to people of all ages and abilities since the 1980s and has developed a unique teaching routine that takes just two hours, with one hour on land and one in the surf.

Nichols also rents AND delivers SUPs, Kayaks, Bicycles & Surf Boards, and offers Kayak Ecotours to make your play in New Smyrna Beach all the more enjoyable.

This website was pure delight to build, as the owners of Nichols are pure delight! You will love working with them.

The Ecotour Guides are Florida Master Naturalists & lead ecotours for visitors and locals alike. I was an ecotour guide for Nichols for years, until my move back to the mountains!

Responsive & Evolving

Any website is ever evolving with the times.

The old website was static HTML. Now we have phones, ipads, laptops, big screen TVs – all of which are used to surf the web.

As a result, the old html cannot shrink and grow. This was the first reason for the re-design. The second was to add sections that showcase all that Nichols offers New Smyrna Beach.

Next we will be adding a section highlighting the surfboard repair that is done at the shop.

Custom Website,

David Toporowski

Dave wanted a simple website. This was another built before responsive coding was needed. As he wanted to focus on his art and keep it simple we have left it as is.

The header is made from a slice of his art and his signature. The images are showcased in a simple, but effective, lightbox style.

Project H20

Protect Our Lagoon, Project H20

Project H20 was a wonderful program to educate the public on the importance of keeping the Indian River Lagoon healthy. Unfortunetly, they ran out of grant money and no longer have a live website. If you wish to learn what you can visit www.befloridiannow.org

There is also a .pdf of the entire website for the client to review that you can download, as it is full of useful information for anyone living near water.

Yard Signs were also created

We also created yard signs for  the community. 

This project was beautiful and meaningful. I wish that there were projects like this in every neighborhood!

Linda’s website was featured in “Practical WebDesign” Magazine back in 2006.

I built her a website as my final project when I returned to college to study web design in 2006 and then submitted it to an international contest in which I placed in the top 20.
