Excuse us, but... it doesn’t look like you’re surfing right now.
Maybe we’re wrong, but it definitely does not seem like you’re presently standing on a board in the
And that just won’t do.
So check out Flklr Surf
, some new handmade surfboards from a couple guys in Brooklyn.
It’s pronounced “folklore.” And it’s from an ex-pro-snowboarder and a buddy who... may have been
stoned when writing their site copy (“Go ahead, take a look and lick, we don’t bite”). But they’re
definitely gifted in the art of shaping surfing vessels.
All the boards
are made to order (give them two to four weeks), and you’ve got your pick of
longboards, shortboards, squash tails, diamond tails, etc. All with a minimalist, vaguely Rothko-y vibe. And
yes, they’ll do custom.
Where you come in: Rockaway. It’s hot. Maybe you’re out at Playland
staycationing and EDM-ing a weekend away. Maybe it’s been an hour since you
finished your lunch from that Roberta’s pop-up out there. The ocean’s calling. The barrels are rolling
in real nice.
So you bust your Good Joo-Joo from its Aztec-print canvas surf sock (another thing they make). And you
paddle out to commune with Poseidon.
Okay, so you eat sh*t. But it’s great fun.
