Simpler Places and Times

Who doesn't love a cool little hole in the wall surf shop? We sure could use more of this kind of retailing in the surf world. A few shining examples remain, just cruise the NH coast, Surfari, Elemental in RI, just to name a few. I'd love to see the entire surf-industrial complex de-evole back to this. I gleeped these nuggets off the web.
