The collaborative surfboard company of geniuses like Ryan Lovelace, Gerry Lopez, and Rich Pavel has finally landed in South Carolina - at McKevlin's Surf Shop. Phil Browne from Glide Surf Co., Trimcraft's east coast distributor, just dropped off the first of what will be many batches of beautiful and functional works of art. These boards are all 100% hand-shaped and come from, literally, the Heavens, Trimcraft's shaping and glassing facility in Asbury Park, NJ.
