The Bolinas Skatepark revamp is underway right now - but we still have time to raise more funds. The more we raise the more we build! Join us at the shop in Mill Valley this Wednesday from 5-8pm for a donation-based BBQ, skate jam, and raffle full of surf/skate goods like Oneill wetsuits and Real skateboards. Plus music by DJ Adam 12!
KIDS! Here is your chance to get involved: Print out the Pledge Form above for the Skate-A-Thon we're holding at the shop on Wednesday. The form explains it all but heres how it works: Go knock on some doors or hit the phones to find some nice folks that will pledge an amount per grind completed on Wednesday. After the event go back and collect their donation amount based off how many grinds went down. Then bring the funds to Proof Lab or Bovida Cafe in Bolinas. Then you go shred the new park feeling boss about your contribution to the cause.
Come talk boards with one of the top shapers in the world, Hawaii-based Jon Pyzel. He'll be here 3-6pm taking custom orders and answering any questions you may have. All Pyzel boards will be $50 off. Great time to get your winter quiver dialed with the help of one of the most in-demand shapers in the world right now.

"IS THIS THE MOST INTERESTING SURF SHOP IN THE WORLD? (LINK) HOW MARIN COUNTY'S PROOF LAB BECAME A BELOVED COMMUNITY HUB AND ONE OF THE COUNTRY'S BEST SURF SHOPS."
"There's always been something special about surf shops. From the amalgamated scent of wax, new wetsuits and fresh boards to the intel on which local break is currently working best, where to get the best post-surf burrito in town and so much more, surf culture resides inside surf shops-that's what makes them special. In Shop Chronicles, a new web series, SURFER will be sharing the stories of iconic surf shops.
This episode transports you north of the Golden Gate Bridge to Proof Lab, a sprawling shop in redwood-lined Mill Valley, California. The founders of Proof Lab, Will Hutchinson and Nate McCarthy, set out to build more than just a place to pick up the surf equipment needed to survive along the wild Northern California coast--they wanted to create a community hub. The shop boasts everything from a massive indoor skate bowl, to music classes, a pottery studio, plant nursery, even a biodiesel fuel station. It’s a destination shop for surfers throughout Northern California and a cherished part of the Mill Valley community. A dream surf shop, unlike most any surf shop you’ve ever seen."
