Looks like Masa and Chris, along with the whole crew and a lot of helpers, pulled off an amazing job of raising funds for relief effort to help the people affected by the Tsunami and earthquake in Northern Japan. I hear they raised over $20,000 in one night! Hopefully this will make a significant impact in the lives of many of our Japanese friends.
Come on down to Surfindian and fondle them.
Thanks to my friend Laurent Kramer for the pics!
Chris and his crew at Surfindian have expanded and are opening the old Star Surfing Co. space as a new, high end board shop. I have the pleasure and honor of being in the lineup there. Other shapers/labels you may have heard of include, Skip Frye, Donald Takayama, Pauk Strauch Jr., Tyler, Hydrodynamica (Richard Kenvin/Carl Ekstrom), and Michael Miller. That is one intimidating lineup, but I am stoked out of my mind to be included. Look for a Surfindian/mast surfboards collaboration in the future.
Boards are starting to trickle in. The sign is up. Surfindian in Pacific Beach is opening a surfboard shop in the old Star Surfing Co. space. Chris, Russ and the crew have been working overtime getting the space ready. It looks like a very cool, hip board shop. The line up looks like it will include Donald Takayama, Tyler, Joe Bauguess/RK, Mast Surfboards, and a few others. I’m honored to have my boards in such good company. Opening soon, with the Grand Opening in May.
