Growing up at the beach I thought it was funny having a surf shop in the Vally, but they did good.

I remember the Val Surf ads all over Skateboard magazines in the 70's.
They always had fairly current items of what was going on at the time. Good video.

As a kid in Texas, the Val Surf ads were always favorite part of the Skateboarder magazine experience.  Lots of little details to pore over with all those tiny pics of setups and parts etc.

I'd love to have one of their shop decks for nostalgia reasons! [love]

I spent my teen years in the ditches of El Paso. Couldn't wait until Skateboarder was in stock each month at 7-11. Val Surf was where I spent a lot of time learning what the latest gear was. Ordered my JA ZFlex from them.

It would be cool if they'd resurrect that big fat trippy 70's logo for a few t-shirts and decks...
