Board Shop Day Coming in September
The second annual Board Shop Day, which celebrates independent surf, skate and snow retailers around the world, will take place Sept. 19 this year.
The event is normally held on the third Saturday in May but had to be postponed because of COVID-19.
Board Shop Day was started by Building the Revolution Founder Mike Vavak. The goal is to put the special back into specialty retail and celebrate the industry shops that breed culture, he said.
“It’s been said before that board shops are the temples of our industry. Let’s protect our temples and celebrate them,” Mike said. “Is it too much to ask to dedicate a day for honoring the shops that created an industry and culture for so many of us?”
Ocean and Earth is releasing a limited edition Board Shop Day hat that will be available at surf shops in Australia and a handful of retailers in the USA.
