The Team at Outside Brands presents… Outside Savannah
In the Summer of 1979 on Hilton Head Island, S.C., Mike Overton launched Sailin’ Shoes Windsurfing on a card table in the back of the South Beach General Store, selling windsurfing lessons to island visitors. Over the course of the next 44 years, the windsurfing venture matured into one of the largest adventure companies in the Lowcountry, Outside Brands.
With the company roots firmly planted on Hilton Head, S.C., Outside has successfully branched into Palmetto Bluff and most recently, Savannah, Ga. Boasting five divisions: leisure recreation, specialty retail, team building, destination management and an associated non-profit, Outside Savannah has much to offer the Coastal Empire.
A Different Point of View
One of the most spectacular ways to view the historic gem that is Savannah, is from the water. Outside offers a variety of trips that depart from the waterfront daily. Outside Savannah’s most popular tours are the Savannah Port Tour and Georgia Dolphin Discovery. Whether visitors are history buffs, nature lovers or thrill seekers, Outside’s menu of activities offers the perfect adventure.
Experience Page Island
In the 90s, Outside acquired Page Island, a 40-acre chain of hammock islands tucked between Daufuskie Island, Savannah, and Palmetto Bluff. Upon arrival to Outside’s private island, visitors are awestruck by its natural beauty. Outside helps craft the perfect day for this destination, offering individuals and groups the opportunity to unplug from the real world and immerse themselves in the wonder of nature. Trips to Page offer an array of exhilarating activities, including dock-jumping, tubing, kayaking, paddle boarding, hiking and fishing.
Gear Up for Your Adventure
Outside’s flagship Hilton Head retail store opened in 1986 so that folks looking for adventure would have the gear to go with it. Today, Outside Savannah’s retail store, located on iconic River Street in the Plant Riverside District, offers everything one needs for a stylish, active lifestyle. Patagonia, Kuhl, Yeti and OluKai are just some of the top brands offered in this outside outfitter’s paradise.
A Recipe for Success
Outside has grown tremendously over the last decades but is proud to still be a locally owned and operated company. Overton credits the success of Outside Brands to the team that runs it. “All of us at Outside share a passion for the rich nature, history and culture of the Southeast Coastal Region. Our passion is contagious as we focus on enriching lives via connecting people to exceptional products and places.”
