In 2005, Mollusk opened its doors just a few blocks away from the wild and unruly surf of San Francisco’s Ocean Beach to sell t-shirts and hand-shaped surfboards and to serve as a creative space for the woodworkers, visual artists, musicians, and craftspeople who lurk amidst the Outer Sunset’s thick fog. Over the years Mollusk has developed into a cultural institution that integrates surfing,art, craft, music, film, and visual media. We sell products handmade by friends and neighbors, host art shows in our intimate galleries, and function as a concert venue. Our storefronts in San Francisco, Silver Lake and Venice Beach have become hangouts and homes for surfers and artists living in these urban, beachside communities.
We strive to make beautiful things that make people feel empowered and inspired through their interaction and use of them.
