Encinitas Surfboards Joins the Team

PaddleAir Inc.’s dealer network is growing. We are very pleased to have some old friends join the team with the recent addition of Encinitas Surfboards to our Preferred Dealer list.
I personally go way back with founder, owner John Kies. He’s a great shaper who learned the ropes from the best including Diffenderffer, Takayama, Hanson and my old partner in Downhome Surfboards, Tom Gaglia.
John’s partner Marc Adam has been a great businessman over the years and the two have maintained one of the more traditional style surfshops since 1975.

Also, you don’t want to get in a golf bet with John, he’s out of that Diff school of golf, which means he carries a single digit handicap. Back in the days of the Surf and Turf contests, he was hard to beat. Took me out in a surfing heat a couple of times! Welcome to John and Marc, and the legendary Encinitas Surfboards.
