SoCal: Typography, Surfboards, & Recharging

I had never visited  the West Coast so earlier this year Jim and I decided that this  was the year to do it. The week before last I took my first real vacation  that didn’t involve parents, my job, or the internet.  Southern California seemed to be a solid bet for good weather and good waves so Solana Beach in Northern San Diego was the perfect spot. Before I jump into my backlog of posts to be written (including a recap of Refresh Baltimore, I promise that is next) I wanted to share some quick highlights from my trip.


Mollusk’s sign was done by Jeff Canham who’s work is featured in my Surf Typography Post .

Moonlight Glassing & Other Beautiful Surf Boards

Moonlight Glassing is known to be the place where some of the most beautiful surfboards are born, many of Tyler Warren’s boards make their way through this shop. Everyone there was so friendly Jim and I really appreciated our tour. For more surf culture from Moonlight check out their blog at .
