Vans by Thalia Surf Shop Opening Night

On Thursday Dec 2 Vans and Thalia Surf Shop celebrated the opening of Vans by Thalia Surf Shop in Laguna Beach with 200 or so good friends that included legendary surfers Joel Tudor, Herbie Fletcher and Tyler Hatzikian as well as top longboarders Chris Del Moro, Alex Knost, Jared Mell, Tyler Warren, Nathan Adams and surf-n-shaping phenom Andrew Doheny.

The new store, which is adjacent to Thalia’s South Coast Highway shop, melds Vans

heritage with Thalia

s bohemian beach culture in what is Vans

first ever boutique surf partnership. The shop showcases a continuously evolving mix of Vans surf footwear and apparel including limited edition shoes and Joel Tudor signature apparel. Last night’s kick-off event spotlighted a photo exhibit chronicling the Joel Tudor Duct Tape Invitational surf contests held earlier this year, while a set by local DJ Geometric had the crowd trying to stomp through the floorboards.
