After the success of our Shaper Stories blogs earlier this year in support of our loyal community of shapers, we've been looking for a way to support the equally stupendous network of independent surf shops stocking Macho Fins all over Europe, and we hope we've found it with our new Stockists Map.
Today, Saturday 19th September 2020, is Board Shop Day (@surfshopday). Created by Building the Revolution founder Mike Vavak with the idea of supporting independent surf shops worldwide and encouraging people to go and visit and purchase in their local surf shop today and every day, Board Shop Day is traditionally the 3rd Saturday in May (postponed this year due to Covid), and will be changing its name to Surf Shop Day in 2021.
A great initiative that we fully support here at Macho Fins - and what better day to launch the new Stockists Map to our website. Search for stockists close to your location, or use the easy to read map with the location of our current stockists. There are lots of useful details for each store too, such as contact details, opening hours, and what they sell.
We hope this encourages you to visit our stockists, giving you the option to check out our fins in person, and check out the other quality brands and stock they've got in store too.
In Mike's words:
It’s been said before that Board Shops are the temples of our industry. Let’s protect our temples and celebrate them. Is it too much to ask, that we ask for a day dedicated to the shops that created an industry and culture for many of us?
