Check out our new patio area! We decided to sacrifice the parking lot into a place to lounge and hangout. All the credit goes to our landlord Keith Harrison and his hardworking crew, George the Viking and Jose. Design by Keith Harrison and Yvonne St Pierre.
My friend Ed Lewis from The Leucadia Project blog and his buddy Kip have been making these groovy little handplanes out of broken shortboard noses. As you can see they are having fun with camera mounts. Ed dropped off a couple of his Enjoy Handplanes for sale at the shop so cruise down and check ’em out.
The new issue of Surfer magazine has a feature listing the Top 10 America Surf Towns (magazines love to make list),
My hometown of Encinitas was ranked third best in the entire country. (Technically, I am from Leucadia which is the northern coastal part of Encinitas which is made up of 5 distinct communities: Leucadia, Old Encinitas, New Encinitas, Olivenhain and Cardiff-by-the-sea).
Surfer magazine sez that all the California beach towns are “surfy” but that Encinitas is extra surfy. I guess that is why Leucadia is home to Surfy Surfy. We are so surfy we say it twice. There may be a place out there that is so insanely Surfy that it is Surfy to the third power. Surfy Surfy Surfy.
Dang, the median home price is $900k? Living surfy ain’t cheap. Hot tip, you can buy a mobile home in Encinitas 1/2 block from the beach for $150k. Now that’s surfy!

Howdy all. If you reside in north San Diego county come down to old funky Leucadia tonight. I am going to be showing surf movies in the little Leucadia Roadside Park on the historic 101 coast highway.
It’s part of Leucadia Nights, a local pride event where all the restaurants and small mom&pop businesses stay open late and have music and drink specials and stuff.
I will be showing some rare underground Campbell Brothers Bonzer footage and a slideshow by the official Surfy Surfy photographer, the lovely Maggie Marsek.
Event starts at 6 pm, surf movies start at dusk.
