being welcomed like you are, part of a family, isn’t something you experience everyday but when i entered this friendly neighbourhood surfshop i found people that are interested and stoked not only about surfing but life in general.
later while living in my van bumming up and down the coast getting more involved into surfing and the mechanics and history behind it. i eventually started working at the lbss as a wetsuit washer.
i loved it and you could really feel the positives vibes resonating of everyone around from the big man bill to our shop dog koa .
it’s hard to describe an experience but if i had to summe it up, i would say :”when i think about surfing, think about my time at long beach surfshop”.
