Best Surf Shop . . . Again

Thanks to the readers of the Charleston City Paper. We've been named again your favorite Surf Shop. That's 21 years in a row - every year they've run this poll. We are not worthy! But, heck, we'll try to be. Thank you a million times.


This Season's First

The first ESA contest of the new season was held at the Washout on April 14 in small conditions. Team McKevlin's managed several impressive results. Sylvia Windham took 1st place in Girls U-16 Shortboard, 3r in Jr. Women U-18 Shortboard, and 1st in Jr. Women U-18 Longboard. Kristin Tanner scored a 3rd in Women's Shortboard. The guys were successful as well. Griffin Jackson garnered a 2nd in Boys U-16 Shortboard, a 4th in Jr. Men U-18 Shortboard, and a 2nd in Jr. Men U-18 Longboard. Big brother, Mchenry Jackson, dominated with two 1st place wins in both Jr. Men U-18 Shortboard and Jr. Men U-18 Longboard. To find out more about McKevlin's Surf Team, you can go right HERE.
