Birdwell Beach Britches Pop-Up Shop

July 27, 2015

This past Saturday we were stoked to play host the the one-of-a-kind Birdwell Beach Britches pop-up shop “The Bird” – an old fire service truck that has been re-built into a classic California trunk delivery service. Well, as the owner of a few classic cars over the years, I know that one cannot ever fully depend on them … we got a call from Birdwell saying that “The Bird” wouldn’t be flying anywhere south of San Clemente due to mechanical failure. Thankfully though, they were able to load up their stock into a car and still get down here to showcase their classically cool threads. The day was a beautiful one with Mick Rodgers and Adam Cap working the BBQ slinging free hot dogs, and friends lounging in the sun in front of the shop enjoying time together. Thanks to all who made it out!

The first Bing I bought was from Bing Surf Shop and it was the Continental model. I think it’s the best noserider in the world and works great for any long, lined up wave. I’ve been riding it for about two years. I also just bought a new Izzy Rider Type II it is amazing! It’s so fast and turns on a dime. This will be the board I ride in surf contests.

At the beginning, it was just an idea, but at the same time, a challenge I had set for myself some time ago. Honestly, I saw it as complicated since it was my first time traveling alone to Europe, and I was curious and nervous because I was literally going to another country. The only thing that reassured me was being able to speak Spanish over there. But, of course, none of this would have been possible without the support of the entire BAPU beachware team who encouraged me and gave me the motivation not to doubt myself and make this a fulfilled goal, we organized various activities while presenting the short film "El Gordo" to raise funds for this trip.
