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.
9月1日土曜日に、「Mollusk Surf Shop」 が California の Venice Beach にある 1600 Pacific Avenue に第三号店を開き、好奇心旺盛の地元の人や、旅行者、友達の友達、そして友人達から暖かな（超熱い）歓迎を受けました。
「Mollusk Surf Shop」 を直に感じてもらうには、実際にお店の一つに行ってもらうのが一番。本当に凄い。San Francisco に第一号店、NY のBrooklyn に第二号店、そして今度は Venice Beach です。
John と Brett が私達に店内の陳列棚を作らせてくれて、「Solitary Arts」 初の 「mini skate shop」 が 「Mollusk Surf Shop」 店内に出来上がりました。 「Solitary Arts」 のTシャツ全種類と、オリジナルの 「Big Red skateboard」 2つが販売されています。

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.
