Saturdays isn’t the only surf shop in NYC. After Mollusk New York closed last year Chris Gentile decided he wasn’t done with surf retail just yet and opened Pilgrim Surf & Supply at 68 N 3rd St. in Brooklyn, according to a story on Cool Hunting.
Gentile. . . aims “to bridge surf and certain parts of fashion that I find really relevant.” The beautiful boards are handmade by some of the best shapers in the world. Among the store’s other carefully selected pieces are women’s swimwear from Bantu, Basta, and Caitlin Mociun (who shares a studio space with Gentile and has a store around the corner); bags and wallets by Makr Carry Goods; beach wraps by Nomadic Thread Society; and apparel by VSTR and M.Nii.
If you’re wondering how these New York surf boutiques can find success just remember– in NYC shopping is not a sport, it’s a lifestyle.
