2015 has quickly come to a close and with it we are winding down on some of the busiest days we’ve seen here in the shop all year long. This past holiday season has been especially an especially busy one for the team here, which came as a little surprise considering we have been hard at work all year to bring together a whole range of new products and services to our customers. As a result of our busy season officially coming to a head it was necessary for the team to get together and celebrate everything that we’ve been able to accomplish this past year at our annual company Holiday Party a few weeks back at 320 Main in Seal Beach. There was indeed much to celebrate this year too, and as a result a long dinner easily turned into a late night of fun and festivity for the Foam E-Z family.
Yes, there have been many changes this past year for Foam E-Z, perhaps most notably in the new faces joining the team here in the shop. After saying goodbye to former shop manager Jackson earlier this year, we were excited to welcome new manager Rob Lewis, a former customer and avid shaper, to step in and fill those shoes. Under Rob’s direction, we have been able to expand our line of products and services offered both online and in-store to keep up with latest technology and demand as it becomes available including (but not limited to) a full assortment of colored FCS II fin boxes, Futures new Generation and BlackStix fin series’, and variety of SUP Think Tank goods for those of you out there who prefer to remain more upright out in the water.
We have also had the pleasure taking part in and sponsoring a whole host of local events which have allowed us to give back to and support the communities that have allowed the shop to thrive for the past twenty-two years. The event that perhaps had the most impressive turnout was at the Huntington Surf and Sport Surf Demo Day where we had a tent just steps away from some fun surf at the Huntington Beach Pier while we were able to meet and connect with a whole handful of future board builders.
If our recent holiday party serves to be a sign of anything, it was surely a sign of the pure stoke and excitement our team at the shop here has heading into 2016. We have been all been working really hard here to bring a whole slew of new projects and ideas for the shop to life that you should keep an eye out for in the coming months. Among other things you can expect to see an expanded line of products available online and in store, more days available for shape lessons, and the launch of a new monthly blog!
Here's to a happy, healthy, prosperous, and adventurous 2016. If you haven't already, be sure to Build Your Own Board (BYOB) as your 2016 New Years Resolution.
Thanks for all the support in 2015, see you next year!
