- From Facebook : Some guys in a Black Van broke into Aqua Surf Shop by the Zoo @6 am today. 2 men were spotted filling the van with goods. If you have any info, or anyone tries to sell you new surf gear,let the guys at Aqua know.
fuuuuuuuuuuuuuu not cool :(
Oh that's f**ked up. Would be great to have details of what boards/gear were stolen so we can keep an eye out on CL or eBay if the scumbags try to offload it there. Then recover the stuff and introduce the perps to a pair of pliers and a blowtorch.
no bueno! i hope they get the list on the stoke report/ to the public.... ASAFP and get those farging bastages!
Karma can turn out to be a real bitch
F!?£€in ass holes!!!!
I agree on above let's get the list ASAP and start keeping an eye out.
Gutted for the guys Down there great bunch.
Not cool , at least steal from the mega marts not mom and pops stores, but stealing is still evil,,those guys are nice there and have taken care of me and my 4 year old son
Hope they have video
Hope they have insurance/good inventory and video. I hate people that steal..... :(
They got one of the guys!
@ the beard.....For real? Where did you hear that...give details. Thanks for the update
@Tenderloin tom, not trying to be a dick here, but Aqua isn't exactly a "mom and pops" kind of store. It's two San Diego guys with trust fund money, if it was a mom and pop kind of shop they wouldn't have a second store on Haight St. that is less surf shop and more clothing store.
Milton, I think you are trying to be a dick.
Well if not mom and pops how about cool bro and cool sis , they are not a chain at least or carry foam boards ,shoot if I had a trust fund I would open a surf shop and hook up the my friends,
I ain't mad at ya
It isn't easy out there! I had to hustle my way from TL ,I use to ride the muni to the beach! Now I roll in a nice truck From a ocean view cliff house in daly city,got a view of OB
@LM, you are a f*cking dick.
So sorry to Aleks and Devin, thank you for being a great local shop for over a decade. I hope the basterds are caught soon.
@Latarian....based off this comment and your postings I am convinced you are a total idiot. Do you have any idea what it takes to run a small business. Keep shopping at Costco buddy!! Most shops make their money on clothing, shoes and other stuff that have little to do with the act of surfing. You have to do this so you can keep your doors open. 9 thumbs down says it all!!
book 'em rocco!!
Unrelated...but I heard a week or two back that this Aqua location was closing. Some issue with their building and the surrounding property changing hands or going thru foreclosure.
they've been talking about re-developing the spot that aqua's on for quite some time. could be something else though, as I haven't heard anything about it in a few years.
@LM... what's with you and trustifarians? You hate people b/c they have money and you don't or b/c its fashionable and you want to be a 99%-er?
Yeah ML what's up
I am jealous of the snappy blue shirts and dockers. I can't sport those snazzy outfits cause they make my but look big.
The thing about trustifarians is you can fake it all day long but when the shit hits the fan, you have an out. Because money can do that for you. The rest of the world doesn't have the luxury.
Latarian and congested: A post specifically for youz twoz.
@congested.. So b/c you "have an out" you're fake? I guess you assume that some one is a specific way b/c of how they look too? I find this whole stance contradictory b/c even the guys who make SR receive money for what they do... Do you hate Kelly Slater b/c he makes millions surfing? Will you call his kids fake trustifarians b/c KS made a bunch of cash in his day? I just don't see why anyone would blindly assume something about someone with no evidence or regard. There's been a bunch of OLB bashing on this site lately, but those are all speaking from real life experiences - not from assumptions made based on bias or prejudice...
And on top of that, you're doing this towards by far the best supporter of local surfing and the coolest shop in town. Props to Aleks and Devin for giving surfing a home in this town.
I love Aleks! He is a good guy and has been nothing but nice to me all the way back to SF surf shop. I could give a shit about kelly Slater/pro surfing. It has nothing to do with me. I don't even know what OLB stands for either. But Yeah, I hate rich kids faking the funk.
I just love OLB ,that photo of him drinking a beer on a wave =classic
@congested : Orange long boarder , don't mess with him or else:)
OLB sounds serious. My bad! Thanks for the heads up TLT!
Did they catch them scumbags or what?
Glad to hear Aqua is back and open again!
dang... not so cool.
However, when buying nfl jerseys china factory, as there are many stores that sell fake jerseys as the authentic, you should really pay extra attention if you not buying from a reputed or well known store. If you are buying online, it is really a good idea to ask for recommendations and check for feedback. A replica jersey might cost half money in comparison with an authentic one, but it can really last too little and fast dissolving after several washings with its fit and form lost.
