Wave Tribe New Family Member: Rider Shack Voted Best Surf Shop in LA

Oh, the city of angeles, where close to four million dreams are made each day (the second most populous city in the USA) and where surfboards are broken by the pounding surf at places like El Porto and Palos Verdes (FYI Palos Verdes means green sticks in spanish; were those early Spanish missionaries the first eco warriors?)

We are happy to announce that we have found some new partners in LA at the Rider Shack—a family owned business (yea, there are still a few around)—that is an award winning shop, voted BEST SURF SHOP in LA three years running.

The Rider Shack is located at 13211 West Washington in the heart of the Angles. The shop is run and owned by the dynamic dueo Jeff and Lacy, supported by awesome staff members like rad Charles (who studied environmental sciences) and stoked Jay, who was just straight up excited about the cart of eco goodies we slung into the store a few days ago.

The Rider Shack is one of those great LA stories, a couple with a dream and passion for surf opened a small garage tucked behind a Fosters Freeze (really those still exist) a few blocks away five years earlier, now in their third location, with the floorspace of an airplane hanger, that little surf shop that spouted back then is a full on stoke house filled with surfboards and surf accessories, along with a great display of apparel, bathing suits and the complete line of Wave Tribe eco surf goodies.

Please support their shop, check them out online or roll in on your next Los Angeles adventure, you’ll be stoked you found them.
