Virginia Beach

Nathan and his 9'6 Pintail are headed for Virginia Beach this morning, for the Joel Tudor x Vans contest this weekend.

Good luck Nate, have a blast.

KenYa Feel the Love?

Taylor and Jeff, getting all kinds of strange, in Kenya a couple weeks ago.

Taylor can't figure out what decade it is.

And I have no idea what Jeff is doing, just hope it's not half as bad as it looks...

// Stoked and Broke Premier //

Stoked & Broke = 3 thumbs up.

Can't say enough good things about the film. Or Cy and Burch for that matter.

Call me biased, but I was beyond stoked on the film.

Cheers dudes.

Liquid Nation Ball

I went to the Liquid Nation Ball at Fernando Aguerre's house last weekend (the Reef guy)

He has the most impressive collection of ancient and vintage surfboards I've ever seen.

Almost too many to comprehend.

LNB7 raised over $200,000 for charity that night

10.5" Pintail Fin

Available here.

10.5" D Fin

Available here.

10" Huck Fin

Available here.

With a little help from my friends...

A few neighborhood kids who insisted on washing my front windows in exchange for stickers.

In an effort to be fair, (and took avoid angry phone calls from confused parents) I upgraded them to a free t-shirt each.

Thanks Frankie, Jack and Jackie, the shop looks great.

Andy Davis stopped by the shop today to say hello.

Super friendly and talented individual.

Very inspired by this dude's art and kind words.

Trunked It...

I was finally able to surf in trunks yesterday.

Helping Hand

Tyler Warren lost his board yesterday during the US Open. Kelly Slater was nice enough to save it for him.

(Al wasn't so lucky)
