About The Tower

Standing proudly in Ft Myers Beach, the Legacy Tower is the last remaining structure from the original West Coast Surf Shop property, owned and operated by the Primeau family. Initially founded by Norm and Bev Primeau, who moved from Rochester, Michigan to embrace the coastal life, the shop grew from a humble beginning in a repurposed gas station to a landmark of local retail, featuring prestigious brands and becoming a community hub.

Surviving a devastating hurricane, the tower now symbolizes resilience and continuity. It holds a special place in the hearts of locals and visitors alike, embodying the spirit of community and the legacy of a family that turned a simple business into a beacon of local culture and friendship. The Legacy Tower continues to offer the same family-oriented atmosphere and connection to the community that Norm and Bev cherished.
