The former Main Street home of the shuttered Electric Chair store has featured a rotating list of seasonal pop-up shops since December 2012, and now the 6,000-square-foot space houses Jack's Surfboards' first-ever Snowboard Shop. Discounts and gear are aplenty here, especially on Tuesday nights.
Lining its walls and filling its racks with snowboarding apparel and accessories for all ages, the store opened its doors in mid-November and will close them at the end of February 2014. It's the perfect one-stop shop for boarders, housing everything from shred wax to half-priced Skull Candy headphones. Airhole Face Masks, socks, gloves, hats, goggles, bindings, boots, snowboards, Burton First Layer attire, pants, jackets, vests, sweatshirts, helmets, stomp pads, backpacks, board bags and even skateboards of just about any brand are stocked inside the industrial warehouse. Burton, Dakine, Quicksilver, Roxy, Volcom, Foursquare, Recco, Adidas, Special Blend, Grenade and JSLV are just a few of the big names that jumped out at us as we fingered through racks and scanned the walls.
A discount section stretches across half of the store, offering 50 percent off men's and women's gloves, jackets, pants and helmets; 50 percent off boy's and girl's outerwear; 30 to 50 percent off snowboards, boots and bindings; and 50 percent off skateboards.
Known for its half-priced sidewalk sale every Tuesday during Surf City Nights, Jack's also rolls a few racks of apparel up Main Street to the Snowboard Shop during the weekly outdoor market. Some of the lighter pieces are perfect for those sweaty sesh days when the snow glistens under the warm Southern California sun, making jackets and gloves very unnecessary.
Jack's Snowboard Shop is located at 410 Main Street and open daily. Hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday. Contact the shop via phone at 714-536-2568.
