Dirtbags Invade Cardiff By The Sea

A year ago Patagonia opened their first surf waterman’s shop in Cardiff. Since day one their events have positively contributed to the local community’s vibe as Gerry Lopez, The Cambell brothers and Shaun Thompson have all enlivened weekend nights on Chesterfield with projected surf and stories.

This Saturday night should be no exception as Patagonia celebrates the anniversary with what looks to be an evening chronicling dirtbag adventure. Dan Malloy and Chris Del Morrow will be presenting a slide show about their surf trip to Liberia with photos shot by Ted Grambeau. They’ll also be showing the film “Mountain of Storms” which documents “Yvon Chouinard and friends’ six-month roadtrip from California to Chilean Patagonia, surfing, skiing and climbing along the way“. As an added little bonus, a 2mm wetsuit will be given to one lucky person in the crowd. I put your odds at winning somewhere around 1 in 200-300, which is pretty damn good.

Patagonia Cardiff will also be helping out with the La Paloma premiere of One California Day (August 10th) by donating 2 boards to the raffle, one for each showing.

The shop itself has slowly evolved, expanding the board line to include shapes by Malcom Cambell, Gerry Lopez and Donald Takayama. I’ve heard that Rich Pavel and Skip Fry may be shaping a few boards for the racks as well. Don’t expect those to last long, but don’t hold your breath for them either. The wetsuit line is apparently selling like hotcakes, even in the summer. Look for two flavors of tops (I believe one with sleeves and one without) to arrive soon.
