You can't really mention LA, or California for that matter, without talking about its surf culture. One of the hubs for the surf community is Mollusk Surf Shop. Located in the coastline community of Venice Beach, you may think they only sell surfboards and sex wax, but its selection of board shorts, T-shirts, and fleece is worth a look. Along with the in-house brand, the shop also stocks Norse Projects, Costalots, Patagonia, Topo Designs, and RVCA. Check out the selection of art, photos, and film while you're in there.
