RWSS Limited Production Trunks and Board Bags

Here at Rogue Wave Surf Shop we seek out items that are rare and one of a kind. Sometimes if we can't find what we're looking for, we make it. Recently we came across a rare bolt of fabric from WW II. This roll of oiled cotton canvas is extremely tough and because it was originally used for canopies on Naval vessels it's waterproof. Now we make board bags and trunks from it. These pieces are made to order and are extremely limited, so come get yours: Trunks: $65 Boardbags: $200

Gremmie Skate Boards

I'm writing from sunny but waveless Cape Coral, Florida on the eve of our Savior's birth. While on the gulf coast i've had lots of time to explore many concrete nooks and tranies and I am happy to report that Kevin Skibba of Gremmie Skateboards makes the sickest land based shredding devices on the planet. I repeat, these are the most fun skateboards that i've ever ridden. If you want to work on your cut backs or just cruise out for a surf check you gotta get on board. Gremmie completes: Price: $165

Huge Thanks to Tin Ojeda of Drug Money Art for sending over some of his amazing shirts. We will have these in stock soon. They are the sickest T's I've ever worn. His work is a perfect mix of fashion with a surf tweak. Each piece is hand dyed and hand screen printed. No two are alike. This is truly wearable art, which is sooooo rad!!! Get yours!!!

JohnMan Wesley

Mentored in the Fine arts of wave sliding and surfcraft design, JohnMan Wesley is a true Surf Gremlin. If Robin and Al had a love child it would be this guy. John Wesley is the most positive and most surf stoked person that you will ever meet. His shapes are amazing, and his kill in the water is mind blowing. Here at RWSS we are unorthodox to say the least. When JohnMan finished this last batch of boards instead of having them pack them and ship them, we had JohnMan hop on a plane and hand deliver them to us. In a world of mass production it is incredibly rare that the person who hand shaped your board would also hand deliver the board 2500 miles just so that he can surf with you! Now that is what we call customer service. It is also rare that the person making the board is an amazing surfer. It makes a huge difference in board design and overall function. When the shaper shreds, he knows how to make boards that work, even if they look a little different than you would imagine. We are currently working on a special collaboration with JohnMan and will keep you posted on what we are planning… Thanks for the stoke JohnMan, you are always welcome here in Charleston!!!

American Classics

We just got in 2 pair of boots that are true American Classics. Whether your hiking or kicking it around tiown, these will keep your toes toasty this holiday season. Both pair fit a Men's size 9.5. The first pair are Red Wing Logger boots. I acquired these boots and then had them custom fitted with new Leather Soles. This is truly the only pair of it's kind in existence. I wore them once because they are soooo rad. The leather sole gives a classy touch to such a rugged boot. Price: $199 (if you're wondering why so much, ask your local cobbler how much it costs for a "whole leather sole" for a pair of work boots). Next up we have a classic Bean Boot. These are super comfy and have are lined with calf skin which is super cozy. Price: $25

Vintage Surfer Magazines

We believe that it is imperative for the enlightened surfer to know surf history. Surfing has such a rich and diverse heritage full of amazing characters. We've acquired a nice collection of old Surfer mags dating back to November '69. These nuggets offer a window into a simpler era before the CT existed, and before Slater banged Pam Anderson... I was just reading through the November '69 issue where in an interview, David Nuuhiwa predicts that there is a coming revolution in board design and that surfing as we know it will change completely. Man, how right he was... All in all, these are incredible sources of stoke and inspiration. Soooo Rad!!!

Prices vary based on year, content, and condition of magazine: $25-$50
