San Francisco–based surf shop Mollusk has washed up on Metropolitan Avenue, at River Street, in Williamsburg. The tiny store caters to purists, with fifteen brands of surfboard, including the retro narrow-nose Dano, as well as classic trunks from Birdwell Beach Britches and legendary surfing DVDs like Morning of the Earth. The hard-to-find shop operates more like a clubhouse than a retail operation: Once a month during the spring and summer, the owners throw a block party and project surfing flicks on the giant oil tanks across the street. “I think of this place as a kind of library,” says co-owner Chris Gentile, who will happily explain the environmental virtues of the store’s cork and bamboo boards or update customers on local surf conditions.
