A few blocks down Sunset Blvd from Downtown Los Angeles lies Echo Park Lake, arguably one of the top surf destinations in all of Southern California. Picking up swells from all points on the compass, a direct East sets the point on fire - Lotus Point, that is. So named for the lotus plants that bloom in the Spring and act like a fresh water kelp, keeping the chop down when the warm Santa Ana’s blow down from The Valley.
We’ve been making t-shirts and such here since 2012 and personally wear every shirt before it is sold. We also put them in a closed room and blast them with Metallica’s “Master of Puppets” for 45 minutes before they are shipped.
We are Echo Park Surf Squad. Get jumped in.
