We're absolutely FROTHING over this new trio called the "Mexican Blanket Series" with a carefully selected bundle of some of our shop favorites.

July 13, 2017

Through the grapevine of spirited surfers, we had the pleasure of meeting one of South Africa’s strongest up and coming junior pro surfers. From the rough streets of Durban, orphaned at 8 years old, Ntando Msibi fell just short of becoming another tragic poverty statistic too many young South African kids become.

Earlier in the year, we asked Bill if he knew anybody that would be a good fit as a humble, stylish and wave hungry surfer that could put our longboards to the test and help us progress the traditional end of our quiver. In an instant, he had a name and a grin...
