Beached Days -Volume 2 Release Party Hang with Surfing's Anti-Heros in Laguna Beach, Celebrating a Legit New Mag

BD1
It’s not your average surf mag. Beached Days is the backwards brain child of Mitch Abshere, founder of Captain Fin Co, and a brand ambassador for Electric, Stance, and Hurley. This second release looks at surfing’s anti-heroes like the Fletchers, Jay Adams, T.Sherms, Alex Knost and some crazy indie dudes you may have never heard of.

The FRUS TNOD (DONT SURF) edition was edited by SWELL’s own Nate Zoller, and the launch party is going down on his home turf in Laguna Beach on Friday 6-9pm. Our friends at Thalia Surf are hosting the mixer with free beer and local grinds. The mag is only published a couple times a year, so don’t miss out.  915 S Coast Hwy Laguna Beach, CA 92651 6-9pm, YEW!

Here’s a preview of the newest name in surf media: BEACHED DAYS
