Mollusk Surf Shop opens in Venice Beach, California

Mollusk Surf Shop opened their third location on Saturday, September 1 at 1600 Pacific Avenue in Venice Beach, California to a warm (freakin’ hot) reception from curious locals, traveling tourists, friends of friends, and close compadres.

The best way to experience Mollusk Surf Shop is to visit one of their shops personally. Simply Amazing. They have their first in San Francisco, second in Brooklyn NY, and now, Venice Beach.

John and Brett gave us the opportunity to build an in-store display for the Solitary Arts with the very first, “mini skate shop”, inside their store. All of the Solitary Arts shirts are for sale along with the last two of the original Big Red complete skateboards.

Solitary Arts Traveler complete skateboard on display.
The Traveler is a deadstock deck, with the
center routed and the Moon graphic sticker dropped-in,
Black Eggs (wheels) and Tracker 89mm mid-track trucks


Keith is an amazing fine carpenter and built a large portion
of the shop. He scours scrap-yards within each city Mollusk
opens and reuses local materials to build the interiors.
