View Full Version : Atlanta Swim Shops: Are there any?

Help! I've been trying to find a swim shop in the Atlanta Metro area and haven't discovered anything online. Does anyone know of a good shop where I can get fins, a kickboard, etc. around here... or hell, even just in Georgia?

I know there are teams in Atlanta, so you'd think there'd be a good shop.

I tried the sporting goods stores in my area (south of Atlanta) but no dice -- it's all rec stuff. Maybe some of that gear is good, but I've been out of the pool so long by now, I can't tell, and the staff there have no clue.

I'd feel better if I could find a place that specialized in swim gear, or had someone on staff who's a swimmer.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. I've already gotten some valuable tips on workouts, training books, etc. here, so I feel like something of a sponge, but I can't help coming back for more. It feels great to be back in the pool after so long, and I need all the help I can get to get back into form.

I generally shop at Kastaway or Swimoutlet.com but if you ever need prescription goggles, City Sports in Atlanta Station sells them at a reasonable price. Not sure if they carry other gear. I believe there is also a store at the Atlanta Swim Academy in Marietta.

Thanks for the suggestions! There's some stuff I can get online, but other gear, like fins, I need to try on.

Next time I get up to the Big City, I'll stop by a store.

I ended up getting fins at Sports Authority, of all places, and they fit fine. For other gear that doesn't require trying on, I think Swim Outlet is the way to go.

Ask for Sue or Matt Palm. That is my Mother and Brother. They work in the Sandy Plains store and run the Kastaway operations in GA.
