Stanley’s: A Lost Treasure

‘Stanleys’ was a surf break in Ventura County that was destroyed in the 1970’s to make way for a highway. Listen to Yvon Chouinard describe what Stanley’s used to be like and check out some great archival footage of this spot, courtesy of The Living Curl.

Almost 25 years after Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard began hammering pitons, Fletcher, Yvon’s son, started Point Blanks (now FCD Surfboards) in a shack next door to the original Iron Works. Like father like son: Fletcher and Point Blanks proceeded to lay-up and destroy hundreds of fiberglass/ foam panels until they found a better, stronger and lighter way to build boards. And, with a group of freethinking surfers and shapers, designed higher-performance boards using the new technology.

    Something’s wrong with the audio. Sounds out of phase when Yvon is talking.
