New board gallery and shop for this peripatetic original Z-boy, Ray Flores. The surf and skateboard gallery and shop includes Flores’ collection of rare, original Zephyr surfboards and photos of Tony Alva shredding in backyard pools. It’s a must-visit for anyone interested in the history of the guys who put Dogtown on the map.

Trendy clothes — lots of Ed Hardy stuff — and Hustlerwear compete for attention in this boardwalk shop. They even have skateboards — Ed Hardy skateboards. I just bought a couple thongs there to use for my “Thonged Man denies armed robbery, decries discrimination” video. But they came from the sale basket, don’t judge the merch on my headwear choices. On the other hand, you need to get a stunt thong and a Hustler poster in a hurry, hurry on down.
