Owners Shaun Tangen and Peter Folich—an extreme snow-sports enthusiast and avid surfer, respectively—combined their joint interests to open this industrial shop. Aimed at powder bombers and wave riders, the store features an even mix of indie and well-known brands that the pair have personally tried out. Gear for hangin’ ten includes SUPERbrand patterned surfboards ($645) and O’Neill full-body wet suits ($150–$400). You’ll also find merch for chilling on shore, such as Indosole shoes ($20–$50) fashioned from Indonesian-landfill-bound moped tires and Arbor Collective bamboo-and-organic-cotton tees ($22). In the fall, you’ll find everything you need for hitting the slopes: YES snowboards ($380), NOW bindings ($289), winter-ready Airblaster jackets ($350) and Zeal Optics high-tech goggles ($499), which change their tint according to weather conditions and track your run stats, including speed, distance and jumps.
