2 Mile Surf Shop

The small, unincorporated coastal berg of Bolinas, CA can be hard to locate, as residents are infamous for tearing down road signs that would help visitors find it. But for those who live there, and those who know how to navigate the winding backroads of Marin County, it has become a Bay Area surfer haven. And one of the focal points of the tight-knit surf community is the 2 Mile Surf Shop. Owned by Drew Reinstein, the shop employs several surf instructors lead by Lessons Manager Nick Kreiger, and an in-house surfboard maker, John Moore. Its name refers to that troublesome sign: legend holds that the very first one to be torn down read “Bolinas, 2 Miles.” Read more here.
