Are you having  a  good time yet?  It  is amazing how much groups of you know about  surf shops and surfboard manufacters.   You all are helping me build a puzzle of surfing in the sixties.  We need more photos, copies of price list and decals.  Of course photos of those rare small surfboard manufacturers boards!  But it time to get a little more serious.  Response and reaction great let’s do it again!  Show us your moves or I mean knowledge?

Where were these two shops/brands located?  Did they move their location?  What is in the location now?  What made these shops special?  Who were your favorite employees?Do you have any pictures?

This is kind of fun?  I must mention my friends on the form at longboard.net they have been super helpful finding me photos and providing information, thank you to all who have helped me.   Now it’s your turn to help?  Send me photos of sixties storefronts of surf shops?  I need all the information you can provide.  You can use the questions above as your guide.  I want surf shops who were dealers also not just manufacturers!  One added question from above did these shops/manufacturers produce local shapers?

You got plenty of homework!  Remember a photo with you’re reply is worth a 1000 words. In this case part of the puzzle!
