Mid 70's Lightning Bolt single fin...

Hanging above the painting of Gerry is my mid 70's Lightning Bolt single fin...7'6"...shaped and signed by Mr Pipeline! Resin bolt and resin bolt pinelines on the deck, Gerry's signature, "a pure source" along the bolt...a great rider and a real beauty!

Mr. Pipeline - Gerry Lopez

A good friend - Melissa Dayton has painted a mural in each of our shops as we move locations...the most recent is a painting of Gerry at Pipeline - circa mid 1970s. It's 8' by 4' and hangs above our counter...

Around the shop...

Throughout the shop, there's a lot of cool things...from boards to photos to paintings! I'll post a few, so you can get a feel of what we're all about.

3rd Annual Kenny Tooker Longboard Classic

On October 4th, 2009 we helped run the 3rd annual KTLC...what an awesome day had by all! The waves were fun, the weather was great and the people that were therewere the best! Thanks to Krissy who runs and inspires the entire event and to everyone that helped out, making for a great day! We had more competitors than last year and the "old guys" division is growing...just as Kenny would have wanted it! I think Currie said it best in the Coast Star...That Kenny was looking down on us!
Since the festivities, I have seen a bunch of people that were at the event and everyone said they had an awesome time! Yesterday I spoke with Scott Dilatush and I think he had the best take on the whole day. He said that it wasn't really a contest, but a tribute to someone that had such a positive impact on all of our lives that we make the time to celebrate Kenny's life with such an awesome event! Ican only Hope that I have even half the impact that Kenny had! Eric

Our final back yard movie night of 2009

This summer we started Back Yard movie night...for those of you that haven't made one, it's a super rad time! We project the movie on a 6 by 9 canvas in the front of the the flick, talk some surf, eat some food and drink some drink! An awesome Saturday night for families and friends! We ran movies from Endless Summer to Searching for Tom Curren as well as The Present, Picaresque, Fresh Fruits for Rotten Vegetables and Shelter. Festivities were sponsored by a variety of folks from Hyperflex Wetsuits, Insight Clothing, Sanuk, Skullcandy, Dakine, Victoria Skimboards and Smith Sunglasses...thanks to all that participated and showed up!
