Two miles East of Abbot Kinney Blvd and two blocks West of Centinela. Beautiful things and ample parking abound.
Evolution. For us 2012 has been a year of digging deep and gazing the expanse, scanning the horizon, choosing which waves to catch, reaching out and strengthening at the core. It’s all part of the growth and while at times it feels like pure struggle it’s when we reach the top of the hill and look out at the view that we become one with the beauty all around us, rejoice in the glory of the day, the journey, the sun as it warms our skin and the love all around us.
We are not alone in this radical moment of change, 2012 has been a year of evolution for many of you as well…
We wish you all a wonderful celebration of evolution this New Years Day. 2013 is here now, let’s make it a year of manifestation.
March 2013, Yes it’s true… after 17 fantastic years on Abbot Kinney Blvd. Surfing Cowboys, the guardians of California lifestyle, are moving. It’s been an amazing ride and we’re pleased to say it will continue just up the road in greener pastures.
We are sincerely grateful to all our friends and supporters, for without you this business based on passion and dreams would never have sustained so long and become the success that it is… offering generations a place to gather and find items to cherish.
We’re not going far… just 2 miles East to 12553 Venice Blvd, Mar Vista CA 90066 our new phone: 310-915-6611. We look forward to seeing you there.
On the left a 1960′s Tiki Board. Great logo, strong visual design and classic shape at a rare 8’6″ length.
In the center, a 1940s youth size hollow wooden paddle board, titled The Skipper. An amazing find in a youth size and in such pristine, original condition .
At right… The Malibu. Made by the first production surfboard company in Malibu City limits. Consider it a historical icon.
Sold separately, although we think they look great as a group.
We’re often told of Surfing Cowboys T-Shirt & Hoodie spottings in far corners around the globe and we’re always asking you folks to send us in t images as evidence… both to assist us in our armchair traveling and so we can see how great our garments look in far off lands!
This image was sent to us by our friend and customer Brett Tollman of The Travel Corporation (THANK YOU Brett!!), shown here with family and friends visiting the Okavango Delta of Botswana, a haven for the rehabilitation of elephants. We’ve been told that they left the t-shirts behind with staff so our shirts are still out there roaming the wild. The group reports having an incredible time with the elephants. You can learn more about this special Wilderness Safari camp at – Abu Camp, http://www.abucamp.com/ and more about our T-shirts here: http://www.surfingcowboys.com/
This is a great opportunity for us to invite you to send us in a picture of you, your pals, your family, YOUR DOG or whoever you spot out on your travels in a Surfing Cowboys T-shirt.
Globe-trotting, out on the open road or chillin’ in town with the locals, we would love to see it! Send us your Surfing Cowboys snaps…
Before there were Phelps and Lochte, the 1924 swoon-inciting Olympic swimmers were Gold medalists Duke Kahanamoku and Johnny Weissmuller. Instead of Speedo’s slick torpedo suits, these men swam in WOOL.
This incredible vintage swimsuit is a from the San Clemente Beach Club where the 1928 Olympic Tryouts were held. One of the highlights of the event was an exhibition swimming race between Duke and Tarzan, er, Johnny, with Weissmuller winning… in wool.
We dug into our rich rack of vintage magazines and found the answer: In the Wild World of Skateboarding we spotted the Farrah or Rocky “French cut” T-shirt, read an article featuring Tony Alva and got the inside scoop about the filming “Skateboard” the movie. This vintage skateboarding magazine, and many others that rotate in and out of our shop also highlights the basics of freestyle skating and how to care and repair your 1970′s era trucks.
The perfect skateboard to live out your Summer of the 70’s dream is a never been ridden California Classics. We’ve got quite a few in the shop right now to choose from, but this is hands down our favorite. Never used, with cherry red wheels and crisp logo, it makes it a great art piece to hang on the wall, but we won’t stop you from taking it for a spin and hanging ten instead.
