Tim Curran Plays To A Packed House At The Channel Islands Store In LA

Channel Islands Store Party Timmy Curran

Channel Islands Surfboards, home to some of the most flawless wave riding vehicles on the planet, threw a party Thursday night at their retail store on Melrose in Los Angeles. There was no grand unveiling of Kelly's
new-and-improved Wizard Sleeve. No superfish unsheathed for Dane Reynolds. It was just a party. A big party. "There were at least 400 people there," said Tim Curran, who played an hour-long set with his band and the Foo Fighters' Chris Shiflett. "It was a big deal."

Slater, Reynolds, Machado, Curren and Curran were all in attendance, along with a smattering of celebrities. "We knew a lot of the guys would be in town, so we just wanted to do something fun," said CI's Travis Lee. "From what I could tell, it all went off well."

The CI/Burton flagship store, an 11,500 sq. ft. hall of high-tech surf/snowboard gear, is to be seen to be believed. Their grand opening 18 months ago was huge, and this was a great sequel. Just make sure you don't drink and fondle that shiny new CI: it could be your next purchase.
