Tanner Prairies custom surfboard shop, The Black Hole, has unofficially opened on 1808 Newport Blvd in Costa Mesa. The shop is pretty cool. Kind of dirty, but for the most part, surferesque. He is taking RVCA shirts and customizing them to fit his style. He is settled in between City Grounds (a fixie shop) and a barber shop (gnarly punk guys). He is currently shaping my friend Trevor a board for a pretty good price. Tanner's experimenting with step decks, where he cuts a portion off the top of the front and the back of the board to make the board flex in the wave when youre nose riding or turning, a pretty sick concept. The shop opens up on Aug. 28th at 7:00 pm, stop by and check out whats going on in The Black Hole.
