Drop Zone paid a visit to Adam Davenport’s of Surfboard’s by Davenport, yet to be named, new surfboard facility to see the happenings. We are very stoked to have a traditional style surfboard manufacturer that builds on the style of the local industry during the golden age of the 60s back in the neighborhood.

We couldn’t resist posting this headshot of South Bay Surf Star Chris Wells. It looks to be about circa 1990 with a style putting Zack Morris to shame. People are fired up on the Wells cover story from the January issue. Photo courtesy of Chris Wells

It was the perfect storm!With the opportunity to pen a profile on Wells and the Drop Zone Surf History/Design Library receiving a hefty donation of 80s surf mags from Tyler Surfboards, Drop Zone has a new perspective on the decade. What’s next? Where do you score some “Life’s a Beach” t-shirts and “Offshore” brand clothing? Photo by Brad Jacobson

Nikau Kai recently launched their own shop brand of Surfboards. Here shop manager and group member of the band “Bullys and Matadors” holds the latest stick. It’s best described as a simple 9’6″ noserider with a traditional feel, yet highly explosive.
Drop Zone Magazine sends its condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Tommy Slater who recently passed away January 16. A surfer, golfer, musician, and one of the best bartenders ever, he’ll be truly missed. DZ
