Owner and operator Mark Zucchero opened the first Flying Point Surf & Sport store in 1996 on Main Street in Southampton, New York. Nine years later, Mark's wife Shannon Zucchero, a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, came aboard to help grow the business.
In 2007 the couple opened "F.P. in the Harbor," located on Main Street in Sag Harbor. In 2009, the Zuccheros opened Flying Point Sunglass Studio in Sag Harbor, which carries both designer and sport brands. Due to the success of the sunglasses studio, the couple decided to expand the men's Southampton location in the winter of 2010 to accommodate a Tommy Bahama mini boutique, a sunglass Boutique and a fully outfitted men's apparel and sports store.
In 2010, Flying Point Premium Surf in Bridgehampton opened, which sells surf apparel and accessories. In the winter of 2012, Flying Point expanded in Sag Harbor and opened up a women's surf boutique 2 doors down. This new space houses women's and children's apparel and hard goods. In 2013, having outgrown their space in Southampton, the Zuccheros acquired a two story building at 79 Main Street. Following that in 2014 Flying Point opened its first store on the North Fork on Main Street in Greenport.
Since the opening of the first store twenty years ago, Flying Point Surf & Sport has remained dedicated to its customers, offering the best service and the highest quality products in the industry.
