In 1962, a nascent surfing culture drove hordes of teens to the beach and spawned pop iconography in the form of The Beach Boys' debut record, Surfin' Safari. That same year, the Richards family began a surfing expedition of their own, outfitting explorers of the Pacific waves under the banner of Val Surf. The shop has remained a family-owned haven of board-sports gear and apparel ever since, boasting bragging rights as the first-ever dealer of Quiksilver products and a partner with Burton Snowboards from its inception in 1977. Like beavers with master's degrees in woodworking, the staff’s passion is its profession, with surf-, snow-, and skate-enthusiast employees ready to match guests with proven brand-name gear from Volcom and Billabong or lesser-known offerings from up-and-comers such as Fourstar Clothing and RVCA.
Continuing a 57-year legacy, the experienced mobile-electronics technicians at Al & Ed's Autosound equip car owners with safe driving solutions during two-hour hands-free Bluetooth installations. Armed with an extensive arsenal of adapters, the technicians integrate Parrot CK3000 Evolution Bluetooth units with existing audio systems, allowing calls to be heard through the vehicle's speakers. Any phone equipped with Bluetooth connectivity can sync with the handy hands-free device, regardless of manufacturer or carrier. Responding to voice commands from the driver, the unit conjures up contacts from its database of up to 150 names when called upon, much like a faithful robotic court wizard.

Allen Auto Body is the preferred repair and customization destination for the rides of celebrity athletes such as Carl Crawford, Brad Penny, and John Wall. Inside the full-service shop, ASE-certified technicians whip through bodywork, vehicle restoration, and paintless dent-repair projects. Allen’s craftsmen re-imagine an auto’s exterior with the addition of custom airbrushing and pinstripes, as well as the dark and anti-UVA technology of tinted windows. Their thought bubbles bursting with images of revitalized roadsters, guests relax in a waiting room where they can catch up on work thanks to free WiFi and a printer, fax, and copy station. Children, on the other hand, can frolic in a play area full of books and games.
The racks at Bull Couture spread before the boutique's entrants a trendy mix of duds by local brands as well as European imports. Customers can pick and choose from the fancy threads on display and piece together an outfit or even an entirely new wardrobe, perfect for a night out on the town or following witness protection's advice to assume a new identity as a magazine cover model.
