Check out the newly redesigned Korduroy TV website.

This is our Christmas present from Korduroy mastermind, Cyrus Sutton. It's a varsity sized Indo Board that he made. We're still getting the hang of it, but you should see Cyrus on this thing...

More of Andy coming soon.

I think the boat parade starts tonight in Newport.

We hung our Christmas lights on the inside of the shop, because we're festive on the inside.

Lumberjacks going home for Christmas

Sent 2 lumberjacks home with happy surfers yesterday.

A 9'7 for Pierre and a 9'2 for Dylan (our Gantez Warrior amigo)

Also, we just got a fresh batch of Almond boards in from Waterman's Guild, so stop by.

Getting Tail

Surfed my new 9'6 Surf Thump this morning. Absolutely love this board. It's the magic outline. Oden is waiting for waves so he can release the Sea Kitten.

You don't say....

Sneak peak at Dave's new Surf Thump, and Camo Den's mysterious Kitten of the Sea....

Jason Stanson one of the nicest human beings you'll ever run across. You'll often see him going for paddles up and down the coast, or stopping at like 27th street to snag a few waves.

Here's a photo from his recent trip to Fiji with his wife, Lisa.

Check out the Lumberjack we did for him in the flash intro to his website.

{ nafun }

Nathan Adams just launched a myspace for his music. If you missed him a couple weeks ago at the shop, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at his musical giftings.

We're working on getting a cd done so we can sell copies here at the shop.

In the meantime, listen to nafun here.
