Sean Curran Photography March 05 2018, 0 Comments

A few days ago a video was posted on Instagram of our main man Sean Curran surfing over at Bay Street.  The video, which can be seen at the end of this post, inspired us to introduce our good friend a bit more formally on here!
kernal insane.jpg
Sean, who goes by many names in our shop like Kerney and Captain Kernal, was born and bred in Santa Monica. A true local, he grew up a few blocks away from the beach in Santa Monica, where he still can be found daily. Sean's been a part of our crew since we were kids, and he was always the most stoked out of the crew, as evidenced by his surf video! He's known to ride any type of board - Kerney can be found having just as much fun on a Wavestorm as on a souped up Anderson single fin.
curran tower 20.jpg
Kerney's love for the surf and nature led him to pursue photography a few years back. Fast forward a few years and he's now one of the premiere surf photographers in LA...his own experience in the water makes him one of the best at capturing the most crucial moments of a surfer's ride. Sean also has a hell of an eye for more scenic shots, and his captures of iconic Los Angeles and California landmarks such as the Santa Monica Pier have earned him recognitition outside of the surf world.
We're blessed to call Captain kernal a friend since childhood and our in-house photographer. He's a true Santa Monica local who really represents everything that's awesome about our local surf and skate scene. We hope you enjoy his photos and surf content as well!


Check him out on his Instagram for more amazing surf photography from one of our best friends and shop ambassadors!

January Brings Us Some Long Awaited Winter Swells!! January 22 2018, 0 Comments

After suffering from weeks of small surf, January finally blessed SoCal with some waves!


G on a dreamer


Following a particularly slow summer, we got a few good days in the fall but most of this early winter season has been in the waist high zone....and even worse, the sand bars have been awful at most of the local spots.That all changed about 2 weeks ago, when a series of storms brought us non stop head high to overhead surf! 


Tomas Baby Barrel at Bay Street


Multiple storms brought SoCal some much needed rain and two full weeks of pumping surf. But with the good comes some bad - horrible mudslides hit Santa Barbara and Ventura, and water contamination has been high.


Sante going left


Two weeks of overhead surf at Bay Street...and some surrounding spots all over Los Angeles county....that's a lot of good surf! Unfortunately the storms are over and we're back to waist high for a few days, so we hope you enjoyed the pics. Till the next swell...

Graham Smith brought in a fleet of fish! December 17 2017, 0 Comments

We recently had the honor of having the legendary South African shaper Graham Smith come through to the shop for a few visits.  Graham is one of the true early pioneers in the South African surf scene, contributing as one of the first shapers in the region.  He's also the father of Jordy Smith, one of the top 3 surfers in the world.  Having shaped boards for his son for over 30 years, Graham knows a thing or two about high performance.

5'7" Blue Graham Smith Swallow Tail Retro Fish

Merging his knowledge of super high performing boards like those he makes for Jordy along with his unique ability to make boards that work for surfers of all levels, Graham brought us a whole fleet of boards made specifically for SoCal surf.  Four beautiful fish/shortboard hybrids are the highlight of the collection.

5'10" Green Graham Smith Swallow Tail Fish

Ranging from 5'6" to 5'10", these boards blend the outline and volume of a fish with the rails and bottom of a high performance thruster.

Bay Street Crew Chasing Waves in Baja August 10 2017, 0 Comments

When the swell forecast for the first week of August showed signs of double-overhead hurricane swell, we knew it was time for a lil Baja action.  Although the swell wasn't as big as advertised, the waves were tons of fun and boys caught plenty of nice, uncrowded waves.

Our boy and LA photographer Carlos Soriano came along to take some photos. Here are a few of our favorites from our quick trip to Baja.

Shred The Gnar Surfboards May 25 2017, 0 Comments

Shred The Gnar Surfboard Collection by Bay Street Boards featuring local shaper Sam Vinstein #STG #ShredTheGnar #eTech

If you've been to our shop, you know that we're all about local shapers.  We try to get tons of boards from some of LA's finest boardmakers around, which led us to the factory of E-Tech Glassing, where some revolutionary changes in making environmentally friendly boards were taking place.   Along with his buddy and fellow board maker Ryan Harris, Sam Vinstein was at the forefront of making high performance surfboards with eco-friendly materials.  

STG Shred The Gnar 5 Fin BonzerSTG Shred The Gnar Shortboard 5 Fin Future Set Up High PerformanceShred the Gnar STG Single Fin Speed Channels RetroSTG Shred The Gnar Twin Fin Shortboard

Sam used his years at E-Tech to learn from some of the biggest names in surfing - E-Tech glassed boards for Al Merrick, Matt Biolos at ...Lost, Maurice Cole and many others.  As he glassed boards for some of the biggest companies in the industry, he slowly built his own line of board...Shred The Gnar Surfboards.

Being a real artist since he was a kid, making boards was natural for Sam.  He learned to do everything - on all his boards, everything you see is made and designed by him.  He has a classic LA vibe that's reflected in his art, glass jobs and finishes, original logos and most importantly, the board shapes.  Sam really has a knack for making boards that work, and he can shape anything - high performance shortboards, retro style single fins, bonzers, logs...

Shred The Gnar Single Fin Wing PinShred The Gnar Shortboard 5 Fin High PerformanceShred The Gnar Shortboard SurfboardShred the Gnar STG #shredthegnar #pig #longboard

 All Shred the Gnar surfboards are made using the most environmentally conscoius materials available in the surf industry - `100% recyclable Marko Foam, eco-friendly BioSAP resin.  Sam is a pioneer when it comes to working with eco-friendly materials, and the result is a super strong and recyclable epoxy boards that float great and are very light!  But most importantly, Sam's boards are made with love and made to work!

VoyageLA Interview February 21 2017, 0 Comments

Much love to VoyageLA for their recent interview of us!  Read it at the link or scroll down to peep the transcript!

 Bay Street Boards - Sante and Galeazzo Bentivoglio - VoyageLA Interview #press #PR #baystreetboards

Today we’d like to introduce you to Galeazzo and Sante Bentivoglio.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Galeazzo and Sante. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
We are two brothers who grew up in Santa Monica, surfing, and skating. As kids we would go to Islands Surf Shop, Horizons West, Rip City to get all our gear. As we got older everything started closing….going corporate.

We noticed that there was a need for a small, core shop. Focus on the important things – surfboards, skateboards. We gathered up the little bit of money we had saved up, asked the bank for a loan and opened up a really humble tiny shop.

We started with very little – just a few of the essentials. Slowly and luckily for us, a bunch of awesome people who live in the area came in and filled us up. All sorts of people came in and left surfboards, t-shirts, decks…everything…and filled is up. And since we’ve opened we’ve just kept filling up and filling up.

And now we feel like we finally are at a point where we are a REAL surf and skate shop. We got tons of surfboards – new, used…all types of boards – fishes, longboards, single fins, high-performance shortboards. We got a range of skateboards and skate accessories.

But it’s still the same as since we started. Just the two of us in here – and mostly local boards from local shapers, artists, etc…apparel from local artists and entrepreneurs…just family and friends.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Honestly, it’s been a pretty smooth ride. We both had some experience in the industry and in retail, so we knew how to keep things simple and focus on what needs to be done on a daily basis.

We both kind of do different things that we knew would always make things work out. Sante is more the artistic type – he does all the art that’s around the shop…he’s a really good handyman so he built out a lot of the fixtures and things in the op. Anything that has to do with art – whether it’s shaping out a skate deck from some recycled wood or painting a custom design on a surfboard…he’s your guy.

Gale is more on the business end…the paperwork…the accounting and computer/website stuff. So between the two of us, we kind of just have an unspoken understanding of what needs to happen, and we get it done. We know what we got to do and we just work off each other. We know that if anything comes up or there are any snags along the way that at the end of the day we are brothers and we always got each other’s back.

And as mentioned above, the community always had our back too. All the guys who brought in boards to sell helped keep our racks full. Local shapers like Chano, Sam, and Ryan @ E-Tech, Koz McRae, Wolf, Slappy…always kept us with some fresh boards!

All the guys who brought us their shirts, art…Coby, Devin James, Kevin @ OP24, Ali @ Cosmic Demise…skate guys like Boca @ Poolfiend, Mike @ Roller Horror, Jim @ Decorum…

All local guys with awesome brands that always hooked us up and helped us grow!

Bay Street Boards – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?

We really just focus on getting people what they need to get in the water or get on a skateboard. Surfboards – skateboards – the necessary accessories.

A lot of surf shops kind of went away from that – they started filling up on apparel and stuff like watches, glasses…so we just kinda figured it’d be good to have a more old-school surf shop that really specialized in having all sorts of boards – used and new – so that anybody who comes in can find something that works for them.

Two things that we believe set us apart. The first is something that is super important to us – customer service. There’s no reason not to be chill with somebody…there’s no reason not to get along with everybody! We try to keep a super warm and open environment where anybody can feel comfortable to just chill at the shop. A lot of people come just to kick it, talk boards, drink a beer…a bit of that old school vibe where a shop is not just a place to buy stuff but more so a spot to hang out…just kick it with a bunch of cool people from different walks of life who just happen to be in there at that moment.

The second thing is more just a perception that people have of us… but I guess at this point we are kind of unique in how small and “local’ we are. We both grew up in Santa Monica…surfing and skating all over ….Sante is pretty deep in the skate scene and really knows all the spots and secrets. Both of us have surfed the local breaks our whole life so we know what all the spots are, what boards work. So I think at this point people kind of trust us to help them pick the right board depending on their skill level or where they are surfing.

What is “success” or “successful” for you?
We just really love this stuff. We love surfing and skating. There’s nothing better than getting with a group of friends and going for a skate. Meeting up with all the fam at Bay Street to get some an early surf session. We’ve really been doing this since we were kids – just cruising around LA looking for spots to skate and surfing when there’s waves.


  • We carry new surfboards, mostly local shapers from $300+
  • Tons of used surfboards, mostly from $200-350 but as low as $75-100
  • We also do surf lessons and ding repair!

The E-Tech Holiday Collection December 16 2016, 0 Comments

Few glass shops were busier this year than our guys over at E-Tech Glassing in Gardena!  Ryan and Sam are two of the most talented craftsmen in town, both shaping and glassing all the boards.  They are both known for semi-experimental shapes that work in the local surf and awesome glass jobs that make you want to just hang them on a wall.

Working along some of the biggest names in the industry this year, Sam and Ryan pumped out a bunch of sick boards.  They did some incredible resin jobs for Al Merrick,...Lost, Firewire, and Maurice Cole.  These fellas grind though, and they didn't stop without knocking out their own lines of custom shredders too!

All their boards are made with the environment in mind.  E-Tech is the gold standard in eco-friendly glassing - they only use recyclable foams and a very special bio-epoxy resin made from wood called Entropy SuperSAP.  These boards are super durable, clean and recyclable.  

Sam, Ryan and their partner Mitch dropped a bunch of boards to us for the Holidays.  Come through and get a great deal on some really unique and thoughtful boards made by hand by local shapers!

Chano Surfboards - Santa Monica's Shapers May 04 2016, 0 Comments

It's all about local shapers.  With big corporate companies dominating the industry for such a long time, the days of going to your guy to figure out the right board for you are seemingly in our rearview.   Ol' Sherm down the street got replaced by Al Merrick and his partners in China.  

Fortunately, things move in cycles, and the surf world is starting to take notice that Chinese pop outs just aint working the same as boards of the past.  Retro shapes, custom shapes - all these things are making a comeback.  Local shapers are back, and in Santa Monica few go back like Chano Alvarez.


#Chano #surf #boardporn #fish #shortboard #surfboard  #Chano #surf #boardporn #fish #shortboard #surfboard

A true Westside local, Chano was one of the most talented surfers and skaters in town growing up.  Between surfing and skating, he got into the shops of the areas greatest craftsmen, learning from names such as Bruce Grant and Scott Anderson.

Learning from the long tradition of LA shapers, Chano's boards are made specifically for Los Angeles surf, and Los Angeles surfers.  His boards usually pack a bit more volume than usual.  His shortboards are nice and wide.  His funboards are like mini-longboards.  Everything is made with the intention of actually catching waves and having fun.  Every board is made with a specific surfer in mind, optimized for LA surf.  

#Chano #surf #boardporn #fish #shortboard #surfboard  #Chano #surf #boardporn #fish #shortboard #surfboard #longboard #funboard #santamonica

This focus and attention to detail doesn't stop at just the shaping bay.  His talent with a planer is second only to his talent as an artist.  Chano glasses every board all by himself, making sure they are durable and long-lasting, how surfboards are supposed to be.  Function and beauty, the LA way.

We always got some Chano surfboards in the shop, so stop by if you are interested in some of his boards.  Support the locals who make this happen and keep true surf culture alive.
