Mollusk Surf Shop Installation - Reception this Friday, July 29, 4-7 pm
R/TURPAN, 63 Main Street, East Hampton
Brooklyn- and San Francisco-based Mollusk Surf Shop curates an installation at R/TURPAN featuring the finest in handmade surfboards and gear.
In keeping with Mollusk's commitment to preserving and cultivating the culture that surrounds surfing, co-owner Chris Gentile has selected three surfers whose work has had a profound yet understated effect on the contemporary state of surf culture. Shaper Marc Andreini, Surf Historian/Collector Randy Hild and Photographer Kanoa Zimmerman represent the past and the future of surfing through their passion for the ocean and our experiences interfacing with its energy.
In addition to their work, Mollusk is also presenting Danny Hess hand planes, Da Fin swim fins, and surf photography books by Michael Halsband, Leroy Grannis, Ron Stoner and Matt Warshaw.
So I'd say on Shipworm & Gribble we have done a good job of not expressing and or hiding our Dane fever unlike most modern day surf media. However, today on his Marine Layered site he launched a video called Sperm Whale which has him ripping a Simmons -esque board in some pretty fun surf. Coincidentally, we got a batch of boards in from Hydrodynamica today also. I figure we no longer abstain and enjoy the fruits of Dane's surfing.
