"Welcome back Street Racers, Surfers, Hodads, and Low Riders to the Early 60s when A&W ruled on the south end of Hawthorne Blvd. and the Wich Stand ruled on the north end of Inglewood. 
In between was nothin' but Cruisin' and Street Racin'. If you wanted to pull over between these two ICONS OF THE DRIVE IN SET, then Frosties, Taco Tio, Sallys, and a few other places that have faded from memory were your pit stops. 
No one picked up any girls because no one knew how. Oh sure, all the guys talked the BIG TALK, but no one had ..."

Futures Fins – It Really is the Future

Futures Fins – It Really is the Future | surfer | Scoop.it
DriftingThru's insight:
Futures Fins, a local SoCal company, based out of Huntington Beach, is truly becoming the innovator in surf fin creation. Being just a walk away from the water, these fins go through extensive testing, guaranteeing that the purchasing surfer their money’s worth. New ideas can be thrown around, and because they are so close to the beach, these ideas can be tested in a matter of hours, from CNC machine straight to the waves. Some ideas are good, and some are bad, but the bottom line is, these guys know what will work.
