    We have always been fortunate to have a loyal customer base. Our customers turn out to be lifetime friends. The demand for custom boards has gone through the roof. In order to keep up with demand and to maintain our quality standards we have decided to build a new combination Surf Shop and Factory. This will allow me to be in one location and work more efficiently to meet the current demand. Here are a few of the particulars:

    - New shop/factory will be in Chesapeake
    - Building should be finished February 2016
    - No NEW orders or ding repair will be accepted until then.
    - All current orders and ding repair will be completed as promised.
    -The last day the Surf Shop will be open is Saturday August 29th.
    - We will be having a Board Swap on Saturday August 22nd. (see event)

    We are excited about this next step in our growth. We look forward to having you see the new facility in 2016. We want to thank everyone for the support you have shown us through the years. This has never been just a business to me it has been a family enterprise that also has included you.
    Make sure you swing by and see us before the 29th! Please feel free to share this with your friends.
    With Appreciation,

    Board Swap Details:

    Great news Austin,
    Awesome you're setting up in a new location

    See all you jam boarders there

    if any one needs boards moved between South Jersey/Philly and VA beach let me know. I'll have plenty of room in my truck.

    That's good news Austin. Wish I could make it to the swap, but doesn't look like I can break free.

    SJ_hodad - I have to check with Austin first, but might have a thing or two that might be ready to come north.

    Ok people listen up. I want a hansen 50-50. 9-10 and up. Want a rider. Who is ready to have cash in a pocket? Carolina to Jersey? Work trades or cash. Beat to hell is fine. Will reward the board train help. Don't both scraping the wax off, leave the dust on it. Just pass it along.

    Good luck with the big sale (and the capital influx from it) and the new digs for you, Austin. Especially sweet to have the shop next door to the factory.

    Sounds good, Austin, happy for your success. I remember when you started, doing repairs and making boards at your home. You've come a long way since then due to quality craftsmanship and artistry.
