Have You Walked Without Shoes?
You probably don’t realize how valuable shoes are! They keep your feet protected from gravel, diseases, and parasites- including the hookworm which affects 740 million people world wide. Hookworm is extremely dangerous with long-term physical effects including stunted growth, decreased cognitive development, anemia and chronic fatigue. So what can we do? Support One Day Without Shoes by TOMS and educate others on importance of shoes. Try it yourself and go without shoes for just one day!

Shame on me for calling this a “trend” but when everyone jumped on the “Charity Train” I was a bit skeptical. I’m not saying giving is bad, but when the intentions are driven by sales and not the cause, that’s when I get angry. But I was forever wrong with this one! I’m beginning to learn that a huge number of our companies we deal with have silent charities and donating partners and customers probably aren’t even aware of them! We have so many companies doing this that I can’t fit all of them in one blog. Every week we will highlight a new charity that South Coast carries. I want to share with you all these great givers and what we can do to help! [click to continue…]
San Diego Padres Has a Special Request For South Coast Surfboards
On February 9th, 2013, Everth Cabrera and Chase Headley were presented with two custom surfboards for the Padres Annual Awards Banquet. We teamed up with Headline Graphics to custom make these boards. Headline Graphics took a digital print on a piece of cloth and glassed the image into these South Coast Old School Fish. Its a fairly new process to glass digital pictures on surfboards and I’m sure we will see this technology increase. This isn’t the first time we had a request from the Padres. [click to continue…]

Nixon is more than just watches
Typically, a product clinic would consist of employees filling out the floor of the shop, listening contently to the sales rep talk about their latest products while throwing down some pizza! Nixon wanted to change the scenery but the rest sounds about right! Nixon invited us up to their headquarters in Encinitas to discuss product, their company values, and of course… pizza! Nixon is a cool company with even cooler values! While being one-step ahead of the game, Nixon watches stand for high quality and ultimate functionality! They even make a point that their team riders approve products- everyone has a say! Nixon stands behind customer service as well saying their relationship is between them and the customer- no one else!
