    Best Surf Shop & Brand Logo

    I was driving down the beach road last week and wondering why I stop to check some shops but drive right by others. I think that if you don't have any local knowledge, the shops logo speaks volumes about how dialed in a shop might be.

    My favorites are OBBC in Nags Head and Hatteras Island Boardsports in Avon. Both use the Hatteras lighthouse in their logo, one is more abstract than the other, and both owners are pretty dialed in.

    Favorite brand logo is Christenson with the skull logo.

    100% agree. I think that McCallum's "dollar logo" is pretty legit too. I'm definitely going to glass a dollar on my next board.

    His boards are sweet; but pricey. I'm partial to the McCallum dollar too, but that's prolly cause the Imp of the Perverse sits on my right shoulder and is constantly whispering in my ear, the left shoulder's currently unoccupied:


    Defacement of Currency

    Defacement of currency is a violation of Title 18, Section 333 of the United States Code. Under this provision, currency defacement is generally defined as follows: Whoever mutilates, cuts, disfigures, perforates, unites or cements together, or does any other thing to any bank bill, draft, note, or other evidence of debt issued by any national banking association, Federal Reserve Bank, or Federal Reserve System, with intent to render such item(s) unfit to be reissued, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.

    Defacement of currency in such a way that it is made unfit for circulation comes under the jurisdiction of the United States Secret Service. The United States Secret Service web


    Takayama had a sweet logo. I like Mandala and Von Sol's too, a little busy perhaps. The WRV dolphin wave is pretty recognizable. But, the one logo that typifies surfing for me and still looks as current and as contemporary as when it was introduced: The G&S red n black banner. As classic as a pack of Marlboro Reds and just as unlikely to change. Simple, distinct and gets the point across.

    I thought the US did away with all regulations in 2008 (joke).

    Will Allison, a local Wilmington shaper, has a pretty solid logo for his classic boards. Check it:

    Christenson is good. Really stands out and doesnt try to be pretty and cute. Makes great boards as well.

    LEE I thought you were gone bro! When you left, I pretty much stopped posting too. Why didn't you tell me you were back?

    This feels like when I was little and I would beg my older brother to play hide and seek with me. He would finally give in and tell me to go hide and then remain on the couch watching tv. You would think I would have caught on but I really just thought my hiding spot was that good...
