Surf brand Quiksilver has opened a concept store named 585 Boardriders (after its address, 585 North Venice Boulevard) in—where else—Venice. At 6,000 square feet, the shop is huge. Yo! Venice! has photos of the before and Foam has the after. It's stocked with clothes and accessories from parent brand Quiksilver as well as Roxy and DC. Of course, there's also an extensive selection of boards and wetsuits.
