Spotted SF / Outer Sunset / Mollusk Surf Shop


You don’t have to be a surfer to appreciate this spot, but boy do I wish I could ride some waves. They stock an awesome collection of surf boards and related gear, as well as books, films, prints, clothing and what I think are some of the coolest and comfiest tees out there. There’s even an art gallery within. But what I love the most is the space itself—it’s colorful and crafty. The camper boat and the second-level office are the works of local SF architect, Jay Nelson, who creates some truly inventive wooden structures from camper trucks to tree houses. You’ll surely spot him and his wooden truck around this part of town.
