North County Candy Shop!

With an abundance of moisture falling from the sky and a fear of sprouting a new felange or getting some unknown funktification from the suspect water quality, we here at the shop haven't been partaking in the surprisingly good surf that has been rolling in this past week. I was amazed to see how many people know better than to paddle out after a vicious rain these days. I went by all the keystone spots throughout the county on Sunday and Monday and I only saw a few lonely rubber men willing to gamble the fecal. Maybe we are evolving and becoming wiser, maybe no one can afford to get sick these days, or maybe the rewards sometimes don't outweigh the daunting prospect of contracting some gnarly hepatitis or staff that we've all heard about. Whatever it is, it sure was neat to see some really nice waves roll on through, un-ridden and un-abused. If your not rolling the dice with your health we hope you're finding something to fill your stoke quota with, I know we are. We built a ramp, got a bunch of new skateboards to surf around the town on and have been keeping the shop on the up and up with more and more killer contraptions, devices, literature, and fabric to keep you smiling through these torrential onslaughts. Be Safe, Give Respect, Get some feelings! Thanks for scrolling through. -Bloggins-

They're still here waiting eagerly.

Locals, holding down the scene for all the non-believers.
So this is how it went down. Plaintiff sees Defendant cutting his finger-nails blatantly on the Turtles steps while checking surf with his girlfriend. Disgusted, the Plaintiff can't believe her eyes and the ignorance of said defendant and decides to take aggressive action with a literary approach, placing above note on Defendant's car after he paddles out with is girlfriend.
Minutes later the Plaintiff paddles out with her boyfriend for some surf, cautiously avoiding the newly strewn humanoid debris on the stairs. Upon return to the car after a janky windblown session the above note had been placed on Plaintiffs boyfriend's car with a questionably spry rebuttal. Plaintiff believes the return napkin was orchestrated by said Defendant's girlfriend due to the feminine high school notebook style script. This makes plaintiff even more angry. To make matters more complicated the innocent by-standers (plantiff's boyfriend) truck can now be identified by the defendant and may certainly cause him an altercation of some sort if not an unjust scowl. (Who was in the wrong here? You Decide.)

126 Hot Dogs, 27o somethin odd t-shirts, shorts, hats, pads etc. and a long board later our Saturday sale is now one big dandy memory. If you happened to stop by and catch some of The Max 3 or Billy Watson and the International Silver String Submarine Band I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did, certainly Jim Swarthow was electrified. In passing of the sale we are commemorating the sale day memories by continuing to offer more face melting deals here at the shop just as we so graciously did on Saturday.
