retro surfboards

If you ever find yourself in Newport, NSW then do yourself a favour and wander along to Mick Mock's Little Dragon.

This has to be one of the coolest little shops in the Southern Hemisphere. Basically it's a surf shop, but unlike any other, with Mick's amazing collection of surfboards, memorabilia, old school skateboards, records, books, magazines, prints, posters, Island kitsch, Hawaiiana and beach life goodies. All single handedly collected and sourced by Mick himself.

I only managed to snap a few pics (they certainly don't do justice to the incredible array of goodies) in-between excitedly chatting with Mick and being distracted by the myriad of amazing treasures crammed into the tiny shop everywhere I looked. Needless to say, a few choice items along with the beautiful Xmas prezzie I received (below) were added to my baggage allowance.
