In case you haven’t heard the Froghouse Surf Shop in Newport Beach is in jeopardy of having to close their doors due to a zoning issue that has been overlooked since the mid 70’s. This is sucks because The Froghouse has been a staple of the Newport Beach scene for over 40 years and it makes a lot of us wonder why now, all of the sudden, is the city council pursuing this zoning issue? The whole situation is a bummer not only for TK Brimer (owner) but for everyone who has ever stepped foot in the shop. Entering the doors is a nostalgic trip for many who still frequent the shop and a look back into the independent surf shops of the 60’s and 70’s for the younger generations. It’s just sad to see the City Council of Newport Beach trying to hinder a business that has been a positive part of their city for so many years. We say booo to Newport Beach City Council, booo indeed!
Let us know what you think.
