The Surf Shop

The appropriately named Surf Shop in downtown Ft. Bragg is run by some of the nicest folks around. It recently swapped ownership, but the small-town, local feel hasn't changed. They stock a solid selection of boards for the varied North Coast conditions, including a few of mine from time to time. Here were some goodies available for purchase as of last week:
5'9" double-winged quad fish. The design that knows no bounds. 21" wide with a single concave bottom, double 6oz glass on the deck and single on the bottom. Beautiful opaque 'merlot' resin work by Leslie (though I think it looks more 'beaujolais'). Lokbox fiberglass removable quad fins and, because I hate the look of plastic on my surfboards, a matching merlot (beaujolais) fiberglass leash loop. Bitchin.
7'0" roundtail egg. 2+1 fin setup, buttery full-board resin tint by Leslie. This egg has a bit more entry rocker than some of its small-wave brethren. Good for the steeper beachbreak we see up here at waist high and up.
Give them a call if you're in the area, or you're interested in having them box something up and ship it out: (707) 961-0889.
The buoy's reading 12.8' at 17 seconds, so I'm going to go now.
