This hip surf and skate shop near Bolinas peddles Equator Coffee alongside boarding gear, clothing and accessories. In 2005, owners Nate McCarthy and Will Hutchinson took over an empty auto warehouse next door, tacking an additional 10,000 square feet onto their formerly modest 600-square-foot store. (For those more accustomed to small-scale mom-and-pop operations, this surf shop's layout feels downright luxurious—there's even a full-size skate ramp in back.) In one room, you'll find row upon row of surfboards from brands like Firewire, T. Patterson and Stewart; another bears wetsuits of all sizes and thicknesses. The original storefront, a former gas station, contains a selection of basics including button-downs, henleys, chinos and sweats by RCVA, O'Neill and more. Grab a coffee and kick back on the sunny front patio.
