Mollusk SF

For those of you who haven't had the pleasure of stepping inside a Mollusk store or 2 (or 3) then fear no more as I took some snaps for y'all.
Mollusk stands alone on the cnr of Irving and 46th Ave,
an hour one way from the Mission on the Bart and Muni trains.......way down near the ocean.......way down where the sky clouds over and looks freezing cold outside yet thankfully only "sweater weather".

My friend and I hung out with the lovely chaps talking, shooting and perusing their amazing book collection before eating some mouth watering Mexican that the boys recommended.
Ahhhhh good day, good day.

sweet as

..... the Sugarmill are hosting their 3rd surfboard meet this weekend... always good to see what folk have been stashing in the back shed & rafters.

there's live music, shaping and art, plus snacks and movies... sounds like the perfect Saturday arvo with the bonus that for every board sold on the day $20 will go to the Queensland Flood Relief Appeal so you can feel virtuous for that purchase... just trying to help out

TCSS team rider Sage Joske has been busy of late, shaping up a storm and talking the talk. Current articles about his shaping & surfing appear in Surfing World and on the Patagonia website/journal.

Always an interesting read - Sage is as eloquent an interviewee as he is a surfer

Herbie Fletcher's sculpture 'Wrecktangle' taken from his site here, designed and built for boutique hotel 'The Waikiki Edition'. Very nice indeed.

Some Summery Sounds

Photo Credit Elle Green

Purveyors of Summer Soundtracks and suppliers of backyard shindig soundwaves,
The Villainares have released their debut EP.

'Let your hair down and raise your glass to the resurgance of cool!
The new 'Sometimes' ep from The Villainares has an infectious,
tropical surf groove reminiscent of the smooth underwater sounds
the whale shark might hear whilst feeding harmlessly on Plankton.'

Buy it on iTunes and Damo will be able to buy some new socks.

Solitary Arts in-store at TCSS

... new year, new gear...We are stoked to announce the arrival of the Solitary Arts range of tees & skateboards online at the TCSS store... well, some of it anyways. We have a couple of tees and skateboards in stock now to get you started.

Geoff McFetridge & Yong-Ki Chang run Solitary Arts out of California and we're giant fans of all they do.

We have limited stock available of White Yolks & Black Eggs tees... but most importantly we have Big Red & Piano Pinner skateboards available. I've bonded with Big Foot down at the local skate park - thanks Wylie for showing me where the LED's are... handy for late night rolling.
