We told you a few weeks ago that we were giving our San Clemente shops new identities. Making a mens specific surf shop up on the corner of Camino Real and Del Mar (100 South El Camino Real – San Clemente) and creating, a first of it’s kind, women’s surf boutique on the block of Del Mar (151 Avenida Del Mar – San Clemente). We couldn’t be more stoked about the results!
Our men’s shop is filled with all the softgood brands you have come to expect from us… like, ROARK, Patagonia, RVCA, Brixton, Hobie by Hurley, Volcom, Katin, Quiksilver, Billabong, Hurley, ect. Plus, Adrienne, our men’s buyer, is busy looking for more unique brands that you can’t find anywhere else. As far as our hard goods/ surfboards go, Trevor, our hard good guru, is knocking it out! Over 40 surfboards by Hobie, DXTR, Donald Brink, Tyler Warren, Gary Larson, and Josh Martin are loaded in, with more shapes on the way. Custom orders have been being taken daily, and we are blown away by the quality of work that is coming in and out the door. Andy Cowell and Kris Carlow have been doing an insane job of working with the Hobie Surfboard builders to bring you the best rides from the past and present, and beyond future designs too. Boards change almost daily, so make sure you stop in often.
Aside from the boards and clothes, the shop has a huge growing wetsuit section, boogies and beaters, waterhawks and handplanes, watches and wallets, sandals and sneakers, and even a section of beach necessities like Hobie towels, chairs, and the ultra beloved, bocce. We are still, and always will be, a beach living and loving surf shop for all generations. All things sand and water.
Below Kris gives you a video tour, and we added in some photos too to give you an idea of what we are up to. In the next two weeks, we will give you a tour of the Surf Boutique!
We kept some of the boards a secret… but Kris shows you everything else in our newly redesigned Men’s Surf Space on the corner of Camino Real and Del Mar streets in San Clemente, California.
A little gallery…
Come on by and say hi, we love seeing you! Don’t forget to ask about custom order boards too!
On Sunday, our good friend, Donavon Frankenreiter, stopped by our Dana Point Hobie Surf Shop for a meet and greet, and to play a small acoustic set…. So Chill, right??!!
For day Two of Boardshort Week we get visual…
Nothing makes it easier to get through a looooooonnnnggggggg day of office time quite like a little a mid day break spent watching surfing clips on Vimeo or You Tube. This being our week dedicated to Boardshorts, we compiled a pile of clips dedicated to surfing in trunks! Enjoy….
Quiksilver Scallop Boardshorts: Enjoy the Original::
When Quiksilver boardshorts arrived on the scene in 1969, they were the first to use two snaps and a Velcro closure to ensure they stayed on in the heaviest surf conditions. The first to utilize a yoked waist and scallop legs to maximize comfort and ease of movement. Today the tradition of creating functional radness is carried on with new fits, fabrics and designs.

Coffin Ryder : A Shortstraw Short Film from The Critical Slide Society ::
About the coffin ride: In days of old when surfboards were heavy and difficult to turn, manoeuvre’s were invented to add flair to the ride. A surfer could actually fall from trying to turn on a wave, and if they were lucky enough to land on their back on the deck of their surfboard; they could quickly improvise and by putting their hands in a mock prayer pose, lay claim to a ‘legitimate’ manoeuvre. Some surfers even made the coffin ride functional allowing them to get seriously tubed in seriously small surf.

A Hatteras Odyssey : A 1975 Roadtrip ::
During spring break in 1975 Dave Bence, Frank Dorenkamp, Pat Fulks and I went on a surf trip to Cape Hatteras, North Carolina from Alexandria, VA. The surf was good but we keep going and drove to Florida to surf at Sebastian Inlet and New Smyrna Beach in Florida. Great trip! The Cape Hatteras lighthouse has been moved since then. Filmed with my 8mm camera. Music by Wishbone Ash: The King will Come & Blowin Free.
Enjoy the Freedom, Dane Reynolds’ Signature No Frills Boardshort ::
Dane Reynolds and Craig Anderson spent some time cutting loose south of the border in one of Mexico’s finest playgrounds. After a few waves, the boys settle in nicely with a few beers, tacos and visits from the locals. Muy bueno.
