The closest I've to come to getting my hands on an original Shawn Stussy hand shaped twin fin was at the charity auction that opened the 22nd Waterman's Ball at Dana point. My opening bid was quickly trumped despite me standing in front of the bidders sheet, arms crossed giving out the evil eye to any who came near. I cant complain that the board sold for a healthy sum because all the proceeds were going to a good cause.
The sunset over Dana point was beautiful, matched only by the glow of my ever supportive, blog tolerant wife.
The real bargains of the night were around the corner at the art auction. Modern and vintage surf classics were going for a song.
