The End of an Era

After 15 years, Ron Ziebell will be closing his brick-and-mortar store Alternative Surf. I decided to stop by Alternative Surf this morning, if nothing more than to express my appreciation for all that Ron has done. I chatted with Ron a little bit, bought some stuff, and then wished him luck in his future endeavors. It's really a bummer that he's closing shop.

As you might imagine, there's a good sale going on at AS. 30%-50% off everything. Toobs boards are buy-one-get-one-free (I think Science boards are BOGO, too). This sale is going on until the end of the year.

I decided to check out a couple of the local spots this morning. Nice shape, but small.

After my spot check, I decided to go slab hunting. Haha

Sad to see this place close
